Meet Nicole S.H a 19-year-old from Toronto, Canada.
“I really enjoy old school hip hop, and decided to make a playlist that captured it for me.”
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
It really varied from artists like Michael Jackson, Kylie Minogue and Hilary Duff to groups like The Black Eyed Peas - so pretty much whatever my sister or my parents were playing for me.
Name one of your favorite albums of all time?
Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande.
What artist, dead or alive, who would you interview and why?
Ice Cube. I really idolize him. He dreamed big and worked hard to get to where he wanted despite what the media or society at the time had to say about it. He essentially created a new genre of music through his work in the N.W.A. It'd be really cool to sit down and talk to him.
Name your top 3 favorite artists and why?
This is a hard one. I'd probably say, Stevie Wonder, because he's one of the first artists I really found myself enjoying, and I think his music is both timeless and beautiful. Another would be BTS. They're so multi-talented. As a KPOP group, they bring something really unique to the western world of music. Frank Ocean as well. I think he's a lyrical genius and has a stunning voice. The harmonies he did with Beyonce in Pink+White? Iconic.
If you were a singer, what current living artist would you like to collaborate with?
Daniel Caesar or RAYE.
