The petite songstress, who has already appeared on Drizzy’s Nothing Was The Same and J. Cole’s Born Sinner, is finalizing her solo debut Souled Out (via Artium/ Def Jam Records) and has finally put a time stamp on her highly anticipated project.

“May 2014. Souled Out,” she tells VIBE, smiling from ear-to-ear, before revealing a very special feature. “I have a song called “Promises” with my daughter Namiko Love. That, right now, is my favorite one.”
