"Music helps people express emotion like nothing else can. For some people, there would be no other way to get through the morning."

When & why did you make your playlist?

2010 was the year I created the playlist, and it was by then [that] I started listening to Dancehall/Soca/Reggaeton, etc.


What kind of music did you grow up listening to?

I grew up listening to hip-hop and R&B, cause it was by then [that] 90's music was fire!

What was the best concert you’ve ever attended?

Way back, I wasn't really into concerts because I didn't like areas where it was too crowded, but my first concert was in Stockholm, Sweden (where I used to live before) [for] the hip-hop group CunninLynguists. I was thrilled and amazed because it was my first concert ever, and still [to] this day, I remember every detail.
