We, Latinos

VT: When and how did you find out you wanted to be an artist?

OR: I can’t exactly tell you when I found it out because I feel like I’ve always known that I wanted to be doing something with music. Since I was a little kid, I’ve always been singing and seeing myself on big stages performing like other great artists.

VT: Most of your career has been devoted to music. So, what can you tell us about this aspect of your life and Yo Dije OUFF, your latest single?

OR: Today, I continue to work hard on my music. Probably harder than ever. Hopefully, I can release my first album in the future. I want to see my music topping on the charts around the world one day. That is one of my dreams!

VT: In Yo Dije OUFF, you share part of your Venezuelan origins. Having that in mind, what do you think about Latin American representation in media nowadays?

OR: I feel like more and more representation of Latin America has come over the years, for sure. Something that really changed for me was when I started hearing Latin American music here in Sweden after the breakthrough we, Latinos, had. Despacito, but we’re getting there.

I’m happy!

VT: Let us talk about Young Royals. The Netflix show has been successful worldwide and has received great reviews. But, how did you get involved with this production?

OR: My friend, who’s an actress here in Sweden, went to a casting for Young Royals. I asked her who I had to reach out to in order to get a chance to go on a casting. Finally, I reached out and got a call back to my first casting as Simon. So I did!

VT: How do you feel knowing that Young Royals portrays various topics that make millions feel identified and use the show as a conversation starter to talk about things they are currently experiencing?

OR: I don’t know if I’ll ever understand what this series means to people. It feels amazing to be a part of something this special and important. I’m happy!

VT: What can you share with us about your plans for the future?

OR: Right now, I’m working on my music. I’m in the studio every day, writing songs, and, hopefully, I’ll drop my first album in the future. The next song is out soon, really soon.

Be open about our feelings

VT: Who are your biggest inspirations, and why?

OR: My biggest inspiration is my mom because she’s a warrior. She’s been through a lot and, still, she carries herself with class and confidence. She’s a loving human being, and one day, I hope I get even a little close to as strong as she is.

VT: What things make you lose control, and how do you preserve your mental health?

OR: I don’t really let anything make me lose control. I don’t like losing control; it’s scary. I only lose control if I let myself do it. I just hang out with the people I love and with my family. It’s important to be open about our feelings, and that’s something that my friends and I talk about a lot.

Before we go

Omar Rudberg has taught us that the words “I´m happy” come from a feeling of gratitude for what life has given to you after a period of hard work and dedication. His happiness does not mean that he won’t continue working on his dreams, but a new perspective of hope that pushes him to pursue his goals with a smile on his face.

Despite the ups and downs of life, we can follow his example and embrace that we all are different, celebrate our origins, and be inspired by the ones we love the most, those who are always there to support us. 

Finally, if you haven’t watched Young Royals, you are on time to catch up before season two begin; and, to stay tuned with Omar Rutberg’s projects and new music, follow him on social media @officialomar.

Let us love all!
