Shenseea isn’t an artist who’s easy to pin down, and that’s just the way she likes it.
“My music is definitely energetic,” she tells E! News in an exclusive interview for our “Ones to Watch” series celebrating Black History Month. “It speaks truth because I normally try to write about what I’m going through or somebody else is going through. Because I like to write music that people can relate to. When they hear it, they feel like I’m talking to them.”
Shenseea, whose skills as a lyricist and upbeat demeanor have earned her 3.7 million Instagram followers, signed with Interscope Records in 2019 and says she “definitely” hopes to release her debut album later this year. Although she initially dreamed of following in the footsteps of fellow Caribbean native Rihanna, Shenseea soon found more joy in going about things her own way.
