On Receiving Love From Beyonce & Jay-Z:
“The specifics of it I like to keep to myself because it’s just so special. But Bey and Jay-Z have definitely been vocal about how much they want me to win.”
“Those women before me, I wanna finish what they started.
[As well as that] I’m gonna make whatever I do black. You’ll know that I’m a black girl, even if it’s on the quote unquote whitest record ever.”
“I know how to work really hard, harder than everybody else. If they’re putting in five hours, I’m putting in eight.
There are a lot of moments where I feel like I have no room to make mistakes. I could fall down a million times, but that is not enough for me, ever. I’m gonna get back up.”
Here’s hoping the coming months bring with it the heat to further fuel her exciting ascend.
