The Grammy-nominated singer, co-managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, invokes sounds similar to her 2009 album – complete with the slight huskiness of her voice and the classic bass guitar rifts reminiscent of songs from Motown’s past.
Her album hit No. 7 this week on the Billboard 200 chart with three singles already released, “Never Coming Back,” Wrong Side of A Love Song,” and “4 AM,” which is at No. 9 on the Billboard R&B and Hip-Hop Charts.
The Toronto native says her new album is about growth and the idea that “it’s possible to learn from everything that comes at you.”
“That’s been my process. It’s why on the surface, the ‘MF’ in the album title represents my initials, but it also gets at the many facets of myself as an artist and a young woman,” says the Los Angeles-based singer on her website. “It can be viewed as the ‘Mighty Fine Life’ in times of triumph and success, but also the ‘Mother-F-ing Life’ when I’m dealing with frustration or misfortune.”
