When did you realise that you wanted to be a music artist? What or who has inspired you ?

Ever since I can remember I wanted to create music. It actually started very early on.. I used to hum myself to sleep instead of listening to bed time stories. I began to participate on different talent shows and realized that the stage was my playground of happiness. That’s when I knew that I wanted to become a music artist and pursue a serious career in this field.  

Some of my musical inspirations are Mariah Carey, Destiny’s Child and Michael Jackson. But my biggest inspiration is my mother, she has taught me so much throughout my life. With every hard decision I make, I think to myself, “what would Mom do?” I know that she makes the right choices, so if I can aim to think the way she does, I’ll be okay. My mom taught me my worth as a person which i’m very blessed for, especially since being a female in a man dominated industry. 

Who, living or dead, would you dream of collaborating with? 

There are so many dope artists that I would love to get a chance to work with. One of them on my bucketlist is Latin artist, Bad Bunny. He just has this super cool vibe and infectious sound. A possible dream collaboration with Bad Bunny would take my music to a whole other level..   

Tell us about your single ‘Missin Out’ –  what is the song about? 

The song is about a relationship status phase, basically the break-up part and finding the strength within yourself to move on to greater things in life. I think it’s very relatable since everyone goes or has been through heartbreak. Sometimes we go back and give people more chances then they deserve. ‘’Missin Out’’ is basically throwing up a middle-finger to all your ex-es that didn’t deserve your love in the first place.

Tell us five things you love about Amsterdam, and why……

  • The City : it is such a melting pot of different cultures and open minded people
  • Festival season! During the summer i’m always having a blast with my friends enjoying all the parties 
  • The Architecture : The popular canals of Amsterdam are just beautiful and super lit during the Parades! 
  • The Art and History:  Is truly inspiring. It speaks to me as a music artist, knowing that everything is possible if you set your mind and heart into it. 
  • The food : Is incredible and so diverse. I always enjoy a quick bite in the city before I head to the recording studio 

What are you most looking forward to this year?

I’m looking forward to releasing new music all year long, but mostly to dropping a song with one of my dream collaborators.. Stay tuned.
