Hey M girls!
This week, we discovered a catchy new tune called "Pull Up" and just had to find out more about the chica behind it! The dance track is by 14-year-old up and coming singer, Angelique Sabrina and we're obsessed. Angelique called us up on the phone to chat about everything from being compared to Rihanna to growing up in the Bahamas. Keep an eye on this lady -- she's just getting started!

Check out our exclusive Q&A here:
M: We've been listening to your catch tune, "Pull Up" on repeat! Are you working on a full album? Angelique: Yes I am! I have a lot more singles ready to release right now that we're currently working on with some producers in New York. I've been working with Rockwilder and the The Youngboyz as well. We're working with a lot of great people!
M: Too exciting! So, lots of peeps have been calling you "the next Rihanna". How do you feel about the comparison? Angelique: I'm honored that I am being compared to Rihanna. I love Rihanna! She makes great music. But, I know I am always going to be myself, regardless of any comparisons. But, I'm really honored! Rihanna is an amazing artist!
M: We're super-jeal that you got to grow up in the Bahamas! Can you tell us what it's like there? Angelique: In the Bahamas, it's really great! It's really different. We like walk around barefoot all the time and then when I go to the U.S. I always have to, you know, be proper. And, I can't speak with my heavy accent in the U.S. so that's different. Because people wouldn't understand me! But when I travel, I miss it a lot! I miss my friends and all my family that I leave. But thankfully I have Skype, so I'll be okay.
M: Def! We know your dad comes from a musical background. Has he been a big influence in your budding music career? Angelique: Definitely! If my dad wasn't a producer, I don't know how all of this would happen. I'm blessed to just have that sort of thing to go to. Because it's hard for a lot of people at first, to get into the studio and find someone who they can consistently work with. So I've been blessed since day one. Just to be able to say, "Daddy, let's go in the studio today." And we can just go.
M: Aww, sounds great! So, we're dying to know... what is next on your agenda?! Do you have any secrets you can spill to your fans about any upcoming performances or new songs? Angelique: Well, I have a new song that is going to be released soon. It's called, "Stop Sign". And I've actually performed it a few times so you can find a video of it on Youtube. But, I'm really excited about releasing that single! We don't have a date yet but I know it'll be coming out soon. So, I'm super, super excited about it!
We can't wait to hear it! Thanks for chatting with us, Angelique!
