The  Washington, D.C. native and current Memphis, Tenn. resident has recently released a montage for her latest single “More Than Friends.” Her other  singles include “The Only One” and “What You Like.” Her song “How Could You Hurt Me?” was produced by Recipe and written and arranged by Jazmin. The singer’s inspirations include Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige and Sade.
