Between the introductory single “Medicine,” latest track “Karma”, and “Bad Boy” [produced by NO I.D. (JAY-Z, Kanye West)., the collection has clocked over 280 million-plus cumulative streams to date. Simultaneously, New York Times proclaimed “Medicine”as “one of this year’s defining R&B songs,” and Vibe dubbed the EP, “a solid bop.”
Within three weeks, “Medicine” debuted at No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 – a remarkable accomplishment for an unsigned artist. “With its hip-hop infused beat, silky, lip-glossed vocals and Instagram caption-ready lyrics, the song checked all the boxes for chart success,” observed Billboard, which hailed the track as “a 2018 variation on Beyoncé’s ‘If I Were A Boy.’” Spotify streams of “Medicine” now exceed 30 million, radio spins on Pandora are nearing 20 million and views of the official video have topped 60 million.
The 22-year-old Detroit songstress has transformed into 2018’s biggest breakout R&B star. YouTube named her as their “Artist on the Rise,”iHeartRadio named her their “Artist On the Verge,” and she debuted at #1 on the Billboard “Emerging Artists” Chart.
