First, we’re here today because you’re a part of the biggest Verizon 5G upgrade campaign ever! Can you talk to us about it and how you got involved?
Yes! We love your song “Glow up.” You have so many anthems that empower people.
It really is! When you’re making music do you have people in mind you hope to inspire?
Incredible. Congratulations on baby Riley turning four months, by the way! Apparently that’s when personality really starts to come through. What are you seeing?

How would you describe his personality?
Does he vibe with your music at all?
We’re waiting for that motherhood power album.
You’ll make it happen. So far, what has motherhood so taught you?
