Hey Sky! Nice to meet you. Your current track ‘Fall Back’ is doing great! It’s really catchy! What was your inspiration for the record?

Thank you so much. I wanted to make a song reminding people that no matter how well things are going for you, you should always remember to stay grounded and remember where you came from.

 

You’ve achieved so much in a short space of time; what more can we expect from you in 2018?

There’s a bunch of great new episodes of season 2 of “Raven’s Home” still to be aired. I think everyone is going to really love them. As far as my music goes, I’ve got some more great songs to release. I have a surprise collab with another Disney actress that’s going to blow everyone away!

You play Tess on Disney Channel’s Raven’s Home; do you prefer acting or rapping? Do you find it difficult to balance both?

I could never pick between the two. I really love doing both and know how lucky I am that I’m able to do it all right now! As long as I plan out my time well, it’s totally doable to balance everything!

You got into the industry at an early age. How did it all begin?

I sent in a video of myself rapping as an audition tape for “America’s Got Talent”. My parents didn’t even know I sent it in until my dad got a phone call from a producer to talk about having me be on the show! Being a contestant on that show was what gave me my start.

I think it’s so awesome that you’re so young, but you’ve been in the industry for a while now. Do you ever worry about the pressures of fame? How do you stay grounded?

I’m just having fun doing things I love to do. I know people can get out of control, but it’s not who I am. Also, I am lucky enough to have parents and friends that would never allow me to let this industry negatively affect me.

 

You appeared on ‘America’s Got Talent’ at 11 years old and got millions of views. What was it like appearing on one of America’s top tv shows?

It was surreal! I had been watching that show on TV for so long; I couldn’t believe I was standing on that stage ready to perform.

What’s one thing you want people to know about you? Do you have any weird habits?

I get crazy about cleaning sometimes. My room can be messy for days, but once I set out to clean it, I’m a maniac trying to make everything tidy and perfect.

On your days off, what do you like to spend time doing? What’s important to you?

I love to hang with my friends, family, my 3 dogs, play basketball, and go to the movies. What’s most important to me is to get it all in – to make time for all the things I love to do.

You’re a rapper and actress, what don’t you do…in all seriousness, how do you balance everything?

For me it’s all about planning my time. I’ll sit down with my mom at night and plan the following day out to make sure there’s enough time for everything we want to get done that day.

Have you ever been star stuck and if so, by who?

One time when I stopped by Radio Disney, I let the DJs know how obsessed I am with Selena Gomez. The following day Selena was in their studio and made a video saying hello to me. When they sent me that video I literally felt like I couldn’t breathe! I mean, Selena Gomez said my name!!

What artists do you look up to? What artist would you love to work with?

I look up to so many actors and recording artists. My favourites are people who manage to do it all – music and acting. Like Selena Gomez – she acts, sings, and even produces. As far as who I’d love to work with – I’ve been a diehard Nicki Minaj fan for as long as I can remember, so she is my dream collaborator.

How do you want your fans to view you as an artist and individual?

I want my fans to see me as someone they can relate to and someone they enjoy watching as I do what I love.

What’s the best piece of advice anyone has given you?

My parents always tell me to just be myself. It’s simple, but it’s something good to remind yourself of from time to time.

Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

I hope to have completed many seasons of Raven’s Home, be in some movies, and out on the road touring with my music.
