On December 10, 2018, she launched a new series “Road to GRAMMYs” on her YouTube music channel, in the introduction she says, “I have goals, I have ambitions, and I have dreams,” so I asked her about that, “Yeah. I mean, honestly, I was just talking to my team, my manager and people, and two years ago, I wrote…I made a vision board. I made a vision board, like a physical white board. I went to whatever store and I bought a white board and I wrote down a bunch of little goals and some of it was like, “I want to headline my own tour,” and now I’m doing that. So two and an half years ago, I want to get at least 100 million streams, you know, and now we’re like at a billion streams. And on there was a Grammy nomination. That was one of the biggest goals that I had on the vision board. It was just part of like my career goals that I had on that board, and for that to manifest and now become reality is so crazy. So those were some of the goals I was talking about, and now I’m working on a new vision board, and now I’m thinking of how to take my goals to the next level. My goals are changing. My dreams are getting even bigger. Because I had one nomination on that board, and now it’s five. You know, this is my second headlining tour. And I headlined in Europe and now I’m doing a second headline tour in Europe, and it’s like all these levels that I’m passing through, that I’m achieving. And it doesn’t stop, you know. I’m excited because this is not even my potential. This isn’t even my prime. It’s literally just the beginning and all these great things are happening, so yeah, that’s really what I was talking about. I have personal goals. One goal I had on my vision board was to buy my mom a house, and I was able to do that this year.”
Another thing that’s on the board that hasn’t happened yet, “One thing is an arena tour. I got to do that next. I think Oracle arena because that’s right by my hometown. I used to go to concerts there all the time. I saw Prince there, and Barclay Center. I live in Brooklyn now,” she told us.
“I’m working on my debut album so there will probably be some really dope surprises on there. Chris Brown is so talented. I’d love to work with him. There’s people like J. Cole and Drake who I really want to work with. There are so many artists out. I don’t know,” she said.
Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Alicia Keys are her fans. In fact, Janet Jackson attended one of her shows in London, “That was crazy. It was unbelievable. Like Janet Jackson is one of my favorites, all time, and the fact that she’s a fan of me and knew all the words to my songs is like confirmation. It’s like, wow, I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. I’m doing something right if Janet Jackson is coming to my show,” she told us about it.
On Friday December 14, the multi-talented artist played the piano, the guitar and sang all her hits “Focus”, “Best Part”, at The Novo Theater by Microsoft, as part of MWP Entertainment Group Presents “WANTED,” a Live Experiential Musical Event Series, attended by her celebrity fans Queen Latifah, Janet Jackson, Ella Mai, Tichina Arnold, Tisha Campbell-Martin, and Phil Ivey.
She told me before the show, “Friday is going to be a really special show on the tour because there’s going to be this crazy technology and you can just experience my music in a different way, like it’s going to be holograms and it’s going to be…it’s going to be something super different from all the other dates.”
At the end of the show she said to the audience on the microphone, “So many amazing things are happening in my life and I really have to thank you for supporting me and loving me and keeping it about the music, thank you so much, and I have been dealing with a lot, it’s just as much as there is good, there is bad, the devil always gonna try you and to take you away from your blessings, you have the opportunity to abuse the blessing and that’s what I am trying not to do, I am on the stage, I am so grateful I am so happy, and that’s all I can be, I am only 21 year old, so thank you so much for making my dreams come true, thank you.”
