Where did your love for music come from?
As long as I can remember music has always touched me and evoked certain emotions within me. My parents and grandparents are very musically inclined, so it’s in my genes.
Did you get into dance before, after or at the same time of you singing?
Songs that I sing make me wanna dance and move my body. It’s like a chain reaction.
When did you know that you wanted to be an artist?
Professionally when I was like 12 years old. I always started writing and recording my own songs. I used to try to force my sister to be in a girl group with me lmao!
If you had to choose singing or dancing which one would you pick?
I can’t choose between singing or dancing, I was born to do both.
What artist have inspired you?
Aaliyah, Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Ciara, JayZ, Nicki Minaj…so many icons and legends I study and inspire me.
How did the start of #lamixes come about, being that they play a big role in your career?
I’ve always loved to sing in harmony and beatbox. So when I found an iPhone app that allowed me to make a video of me signing, beatboxing and dancing all in one I just went crazy with it.
How did you and Kash Doll come together to collaborate on “Acting Funny”?
Kash Doll and I have known each other for a few years both being independent local Detroit artists. We’ve always supported each other. So after I recorded Actin Funny I just sent it to her like- I know you’ll murder this and that’s exactly what she did.
What’s next for you, and what should we be on the lookout for?
Imma keep hitting y’all back to back with some La’Bangers then a LaMixTape, which will be my debut ep. I’m very excited about this year, I’ve been working my ass off I’m ready for it all to pay off.
