Absolutely! I wanna leak everything but my team is like “no, no, no!” But, in the next couple of weeks, there is another single that is going to come out. The first single ‘Femme Fatale,” did really good.. so I’ll be releasing another single and in the first quarter [of 2014] I’ll be releasing the whole EP. And following that, I release a whole album. And then I do a tour a tour in April!
Besides life itself, I love fashion. I love street fashion. A lot of it comes from not having [clothes] when I was younger and having to take my brother’s clothes and be creative about it. But I love to watch everyday people.
Would you say that being on Lala’s ‘Full Court’ has helped with your career or has it imposed as far as being taken seriously as an artist?
I think it’s done both but being heavier on the side of “it’s helped.” Of course a lot of people don’t take me seriously because they think that I’m a reality-tv show star but in hindsight- that’s what I am. I was an artist beforehand [and] I can’t do anything but humble myself. So yea, you know me from [Full Court Life] but let me prove something else to you. [Being on the show] hasn’t imposed, it’s just shined a few different lights on my career.
What describes your music best? What inspires your music and your style of music?
Well, gotta be honest… I grew up not being able to listen to secular, non-Christian, music- so I took different pieces [from] different places. I love Tina Turner, I love No Doubt. I love The Sex Pistols. I love Rihanna. I love Beyonce. But I gotta be honest, a lot of [my musical inspiration] comes from inside of me. I’m very eclectic. I’m very “drum and base” because I’m from the south. So I try to mesh everything.
For 2014, I think I want everybody to see my follow through. I want you to learn the story and to know it!
