So­cial me­dia star? In­ter­na­tional singer? Style maven? Meet the girl who’s made it all pos­si­ble

Women's Weekly (Malaysia) - - Inform -

This soft-spo­ken singer has been mak­ing waves on the in­ter­na­tional front when she signed up with New York-based la­bel Fader in 2011 and re­leased “Live Your Life”, a sin­gle pro­duced by Phar­rell Wil­liams the fol­low­ing year. She later joined renowned pro­ducer David Fos­ter's Verve Mu­sic Group. This year has been one of her big­gest years, from be­ing nom­i­nated for a Black En­ter­tain­ment Tele­vi­sion (BET) award in the BET Cen­tric cat­e­gory for her song “Crush” featuring Usher to be­ing fea­tured in Vogue Ara­bia. Her un­con­ven­tional beauty and strik­ing fash­ion hi­jab looks have set her apart from her mu­sic peers. Rather than give in to pres­sure to take her hi­jab off, her re­fusal to com­pro­mise on mod­esty has spurred her suc­cess even more and en­abled her to re­main true to who she is.
