After months of flip flopping, it looks like BET has finally settled on a solid set of 106&Park hosts. Keshia Chante, an occassional guest, was announced as Bow Wow’s official partner in crime by none other than good friend Drake. Dressed in thigh high Luichiny boots and Urban Outfitters shorts, the Canadian cutie looks right at home on the New York City stage.

1. She’s a Canadian pop star.
A singer since she was a child, Keshia’s been Canada’s reigning pop princess for years. She already has eight top ten hits under her belt and has received multiple awards for her music. Check out “I Miss U,” one of her most recent videos above.
2. She’s a frontrunner for the Aaliyah biopic.
In case you haven’t noticed, she bears an uncanny resemblance to the legendary singer and film execs have noticed. The TV host is rumored to be a frontrunner for a biopic, which is still in its early stages. Check out her beautiful acoustic rendition of “One in a Million” above.
3. She’s a fashionista.
A staple at Toronto Fashion Week, Keshia’s style choices are frequently highlighted for being high end and accessible to her fans. She’s participated in multiple fashion shows and even owns stock in Marciano.

4. She’s got a famous ex.
Those who were tuned into Drake’s 106&Park takeover know that the two were an item back in the day. As child stars in Canada, we’re sure it was only natural that these two gravitated toward one another.

5. She’s a reality TV judge.
Move over Kelly Rowland and Nicki Minaj: you aren’t the only reality TV judge with an equally successful music career. For the past year, Keshia’s served as a judge on The Next Star, Canada’s premier singing competition reality series.
