Ravi Talks 'DamnRa' Single, Solo Career & VIXX's Upcoming 'Hades' Comeback: Interview

Ravi Talks 'DamnRa' Single, Solo Career & VIXX's Upcoming 'Hades' Comeback: Interview

In the midst of VIXX's plan to release three singles in 2016, Ravi found time to not only release his first mixtape, but make the first important steps in a full-fledged solo career. The 23-year-old rapper's impressive [R.EBIRTH] mixtape from March saw Ravi handling production on every track; last month he further showcased his potential as a solo star with "DamnRa" and its one-take–inspired music video. [R.EBIRTH] showed his versatility—"Where Should I Go" recalled the subtle beat you'd find on a Drake album, as songs like "Ox" and "Lean On" respectively spotlighted his R&B and pop sensibilities—while "DamnRa" felt like the next logical step to prove Ravi could take control of a dance troupe for an intense music video.

In the midst of preparing for VIXX's new Hades EP, Ravi took some time to talk with Fuse about his recent solo work, his artistic ambitions and what he envisions next for himself and his group.
