Veronica's Latest Single is on the Money
1 November 2017.

"Your work is to discover your work and then with all your heart to give yourself to it."
–Veronica Rinomato

Only a few stations in and around Toronto are playing Money yet it's already number six in Quebec's Top 100 Anglophone chart with over 50 Francophone radio stations playing the song in Canada. My Gay Toronto's Raymond Helkio interviewed Veronica about her latest single, mentorship and the value of selective friendships.

Veronica: The weekend we wrote "Money," 4Korners the Raptors DJ hit me up and told me he was playing one of my songs at the ACC. My producer and I bought tickets and went down to hear him play our song in front of 20,000 people! So we were incredibly stoked about that.Then I went to a after-party with 4Korners and he played my song again and I performed it with him at Masion Mercer. During that time my producer went to the studio and created the beat for "Money" and the next day I went in, we wrote the song, recorded it. and bam, the lyrics and melodies flowed through me so easily.

What was the most challenging part about creating the video for "Money?" 
We drove down to Miami to shoot "Money." The drive definitely wasn't easy nor were some of the shoot locations. We didn't receive permits to shoot or anything like that, so we walked around everywhere finding the coolest spots filled with beautiful pieces of art and meet some amazing people. Almost got our car towed a couple times, but all in all it was worth it.

Who is your mentor? My dad is my mentor. He has become a very successful business man and I've learned a lot from him on how to handle myself as a professional and be the best at what I do. He is constantly pushing me to become a better artist and a young boss everyday.

What do you know now that you wish someone had told you when you started your career? To limit the people you trust. You don't need everyone to be your friend and you don't owe anyone anything.
