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

There’s never been anything else, music will always be my first love. I knew I wanted to do music and be a pop star since as far as I can remember. If my parents played music around the house or there was just music on tv I’d start performing along to it. Music has been irresistible to me since I was a little girl. I am inspired by the healing and joy music brings, music is so powerful. My goal is to give people an escape when they’re listening to my music and to bring healing and joy to people through it. Many inspire me but I am especially grateful for my mentor Cindy Valentine, she inspires me everyday to work hard and fight for what I want. She’s supported my dreams when my own family hasn’t. She to me embodies strength, talent, and a lot of heart – so I look up to her.

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

Wow there’s so many incredible artists in this business who I’d love to work with. collaborating with Mike Will Made It has been a dream of mine for years. I think he’s a genius and I’d love to put our heads together and create something the world has never heard before.

Tell us about your single ‘Psycho But Ya Love It’– what is the song about?

My new single “Psycho But Ya Love It” means the world to me. This song goes out to anyone who’s been called crazy by the one they love…I’m pretty sure that’s everyone haha. This song is so special to me because every single lyric is so personal and true. This song was written shortly after a breakup where i kept being told I was too much and too crazy…that I was psycho. Truth is, he used to tell me that my crazy was exactly what he loved about me. This song is my closure, my final word, my peace, it’s my emergence from feeling low to being high and empowered again. This song helped heal me more than time ever could.

Tell us five things you love about the city you live in, and why……

I love my city!! Shout out to all my New Yorkers! Although I am super excited to tour and experience the world, 5 things I love about NY would have to be…

1) The fast paced hussle of the city, it’s thrilling and exciting. The city truly has a life of its own.

2) the street art is one of my absolute favorite things about my city. I love seeing all the colors, designs, statements, the art and creativity is beautiful.

3) I love how while in New York City you can find almost any type of food from anywhere in the world. There’s so much variety and I love trying new things!

4) something is always going on, whether it’s 2pm or 2am you can walk up and down the same street but it will never be the same twice.

5) I love east coast style, from the clothing to the music. It’s fresh and bold and daring. I love the fearlessness.

What are you most looking forward to this year? 

This year, I am most looking forward to making my mark in the music world. I’d love to win awards and perform at the Grammy Awards but more than anything I want to connect with people through my music. I want to impact the world and make a positive difference through my music.
