On the Come-Up: 5 Fierce Female Singers to Watch


Tiara Thomas

“I didn’t know I was going to be on the mixtape,” Tiara Thomas said of her feature on Wale’s “More About Nothing.” “I got on Twitter and was like, ‘Why do I have all of these new followers?'”

Sure, 19,000+ followers may be considered a lot for an aspiring artist still in college, but Miss Thomas isn’t your ordinary lady rap-singer. For one, she has a penchant for picking brash rap lyrics and making them melodically palatable. For two, she comes equipped with this aura that has followers dubbing her a young Lauryn Hill. Maybe it’s her skills with the acoustic guitar? Or perhaps it’s the fact that she’s not bad with the bars. Whatever it is, we’re into it, and we think you may be, too.
