Beyonce’ is a big influence for me also Missy Elliot because she brought so much fun to the music for me. and Mary J. Blige.
Today’s music seems to be about collaborations with the “hottest” artist out. Who would you want to work with on a project? And why?
Ariana Grande because I love her music so much and how she is able to express herself within the music. Adele would be another who I would look forward to working with on a project.

For the fans to be more involved with an artist project. They are the ones too but the music and they are the ones that mostly the artist do music for so they should have more of a say so.
