IV4 is a fantastic singer-songwriter. The St. Louis native is quickly making a name for herself in the industry. Her song “Swimming,” which she co-wrote with Trippie Redd, has over one million views. She accepts her strength and uses it to create music that captivates the listener. IV4 was interviewed by Rolling Out about her music, vodun, and women in the industry.
What has been the most pivotal occasion in your career so far, and why?
I’m not sure if it was career-defining, but The Weeknd expressed interest in my music. That was quite impressive. Even though I was sleeping in a walk-in closet and didn’t have any money, I was still able to reach and impress people with years of expertise in the field.
What are your thoughts about vodun?
Vodun is a sacred element of my ancestry and a religious practice. It’s not something I talk about in public, and it’s been widely misinterpreted in the media and throughout history.
Why is it so vital to you to spread the word about witchcraft?
I don’t think I’m running a campaign to promote it. I place a greater emphasis on natural healing and the promotion of positive energy. I believe that more people practice than they are aware of. Manifestation, prayer candles, holidays, herbal teas, lucky charms, crystals, astrology, and superstitions are just a few examples.
