Rihanna, Brandy, and Chris Brown influenced R&B and hip hop artist presents listeners a quality mixture of seductive vibes along with more introspective bops that showcases her overall dynamic talent.
Her recent On The Radar performance caught my attention with her distinct flow on a classic 112 harmony sampled beat which made me excited to go and check out her overall music catalog. “JPay” and “Say Yes” are two different vibes but are jams to add to your daily mix of music.

How does it feel in your young career to get on ‘On The Radar’ and have a feature from an artist like Santana?
Both “On The Radar” and the Santana feature felt like major accomplishments. OTR gave me a chance to showcase myself in front of real people in an authentic and unique way. Sharing my first big feature with someone as influential as Saucy will be a core memory for me.

Drawing inspiration from dope musicians such as Doja Cat, Chris Brown, Lauryn Hill, Migos, Rihanna, Brandy, and Christina Aguilera have really help me discover and mold my sound into my own.
