Which Will Smith Movie Helped Inspire Bryce Vine's Song 'Take Me Home'?
Welcome back to Between the Lines, our series where we ask music's movers and shakers to delve into the lyrics of some of their best tracks. In this episode, we sit down with up-and-coming rapper Bryce Vine, an artist who truly embodies the best of both coasts. Born in New York City, the young MC made the move to LA in order to pursue his California dreams of releasing fun, poolside-ready anthems, perfect for summer. He's well on his way, especially with the single "Take Me Home," which was inspired by true events in his life. What kind of events? Meeting girls, of course. Bryce tells us that his inspiration for the light-hearted track came from conversations he's had with all the girls he's met over the years — the line "she said I look mixed / I said I'm dark white" was pulled from a real-life conversation. He also talks about why he decided to name the song's female protagonist after a famous Will Smith movie character. Wanna know which one? Watch the video above to find out.
