Mathew Knowles found phenomenal success grooming and managing the mega group Destiny's Child. He is now handing out mics to Blush, a harmonically blended hip-hop and R&B trio (est. 2013), and they are using them to mix fiery rhymes and hooks.


What's up, I'm Tali from Blushhh Music with three Hs, and I'm going to speak about breathing. Breathing is my technique. It's how I heal, how I cope with things. It's how I meditate. I do pray, and I do meditate, but breathing, to me, is very quick and instant. Like a situation that happened before, um, I've had to deal with attacks, well, verbal attacks. I've had to deal with my character being tainted. I had to deal with certain things like that. And in a situation, you know, some people's anger kind of gets a little more heated. And the way I know my anger gets heated is when I'm breathing a lot more fast. When I start breathing fast, I can't think. I'm thinking about my reaction. I'm thinking about, okay, I'm breathing and I'm mad, in a sense. Now, if I slow down my breathing, and I breathe really slow, I might cry. If I just breathe normal, and don't think about anything, I'm actually more relaxed, and I can really just glide through my day without any issues. I feel like breathing is more than just being able to survive and live. I feel like it's my power, my key, and as long as I'm breathing, I can overcome any situation. So, that's what breathing is for me.
