Chloe X Halle
After being taken under her wing by Queen Bey herself, sisters Chloe X Halle‘s rise to stardom has been nothing short of a fairy tale.
“We pinch ourselves every day,” Chloe admits. “We’re just two young girls who like to create music from scratch in their living room.”
This is just the beginning. With such an abundance of talent and the Knowles-Carter machine behind them, the future can be nothing short of luminous!
Bodacious, sex positive rapper CupcakKe, who cites Khia as the catalyst for her musical metamorphosis.
“One day, I was listening to ‘My Neck, My Back’ by Khia and just in the mood and horny,” she tells Rolling Stones “I was like ‘Oh yeah, I’m gonna write something that’s sexual to get it out.'”
We admire her openness and free spirit and suggest you all keep your eyes on CupcakKe in the future!
Yara Shahidi became a household favorite playing Zoey in the award-winning comedy Black-ish, so much so, that Yara has been given her own spin-off titled College-ish.
“I still want to be a superhero. I still want to be a Holden Caulfield, a catcher in the rye,” also telling Rolling Stone “I like to think I know a lot, but I don’t. I’m motivated to learn more,” she says. “At the crux of [my major], at the crux of acting and at the crux of everything I do is a desire to understand humans – [and to become] active in a way that touches anybody or even activates anybody.”
College-ish will hit our television screens early 2018!
