I always knew I wanted to be a singer since I was a lil cradle baby. My next door neighbour was a songwriter and he came round to our house once when I was 15. I used that as my opportunity to sing and see if he thought I was good enough; he did and he helped me become a better songwriter.
What was your breakthrough?
One day my friends had been making a track and asked for my help so we wrote a demo together. It was originally for another singer but apparently when Nas got a hold of it, he thought my voice was interesting and wanted it to stay! I honestly couldn't believe it. Two weeks later I was shooting the video with Nas. It was definitely swimming in the deep end but I had the best time. It was through that where Roc became involved.
You have recently collaborated with Tough Love on the summer anthem ‘Touch’ but what´s next?
I've been recording my album, and I have a couple of other sneaky features coming out too before then. There's a lot of exciting things happening but I don't want to jinx it so I'm gonna keep hush hush right now and end with a winky face.
