Bazzi Says Not To Believe In Aliens Is ‘Ignorant’ In Detroit Interview

“You can start seeing stuff that you weren’t paying attention to.”

(AMP) - Michigan's own Bazzi has seen a meteoric rise in the last few months.

Born in Dearborn, the singer-songwriter released his debut album Cosmic in April, which features the songs "Mine" and "Beautiful." Cosmic entered the Billboard 200 at number 35 in its first week after release. It has since peaked at number 14 on the list.

Bazzi's popularity has led him to join Justin Timberlake and Camila Cabello on their respected tours.

In July, Bazzi embarked on his first headlining tour, The Cosmic Tour, and booked back-to-back performances at St. Andrew's Hall in downtown Detroit.

98.7 AMP Radio's Cruise and Julia sat down with Bazzi Tuesday night before his sold-out show to talk about believing in aliens, new music and coming home.

It's no surprise Bazzi "100 percent" believes in aliens. If you look at the cover art for Cosmic and the music video for "Mine," you can tell that Bazzi clearly has deep thoughts about space.

His explanation behind believing in aliens does make sense. 

"There's just no way that there isn't (aliens)," Bazzi told Cruise. "We live in our galaxy,  which in our galaxy we can't even go to other galaxies. To assume that there isn't life or some form of existence somewhere else is super ignorant."

Bazzi said it all depends on how open you are to receiving signs, “you can start seeing stuff that you weren’t paying attention to.”

The love for space spilled over when he got to visit NASA in Houston on tour.

But while he's seen many cities, Bazzi said coming back to Detroit has been one of his favorite moments of his tour. 

"It's been good to be home, it bases you, just reminds you of everything," Bazzi said. "It's very nostalgic and very humbling to be reminded because you're constantly doing so much and this life is so fast-paced, it's good to come home and feel like what your life was like before." 

Bazzi mentioned that the hardworking Detroit ethic is one of the biggest things he's picked up and used toward his career. 

"If Michigan people can put their eye on something, they definitely have the work ethic to hustle and make it there." 

That "hustle" has even led him to record 12 new songs since the Cosmic's April release. There's no word when or if those songs will be released soon.
