I learned about classical music when I was learning saxophone.

As he’s matured, his interest and appreciation has grown for both the classical music and jazz genre.

V stated that despite not implementing any characteristics of classical music or jazz in his song “Blue & Grey,” he plans to incorporate it into his music eventually.

He then revealed he will be sure to include music inspired by those genres on his upcoming mixtape that he’s been working on lately.

Since I love those genres, I’m trying to write those songs in my next mixtape album. Please look forward to it.

— V

It sounds like V’s future mixtape is underway and ARMYs couldn’t be any more excited for its release!
