Yes maybe! I haven't really thought about that. Dancing has always been a big part of my life and I love rhythmical drums and handclaps, it's kind of far from the music I grew up with but it is what I love the most so that's what I do. I take inspiration from a lot of different genres, but I think mostly RnB and classic pop songs.
Q. “Encore” was one of your most succesful releases. Tell us about how this project came to be and did you get the feedback you expected?
The music tradition is very important in Sweden, we study music from when we're very little and it's all state funded so I think it comes naturally to alot of people here. My father is a musician so creating music has always been something I find very normal. Also, I think Swedes are great with music partly because 7 months of the year the weather here is super depressing, so If you have a computer and some music making software, it's an easy way to escape for a bit ;)
Q. You’re originally from Stockholm, Sweden, a country well known for rising musical talent, especially in the Electronic genre. How has this country inspired you to become the artist you are today?
Q. Many of your tracks seem to have influences of Reggaeton. Is this an accurate comparison?
"...It's fun to hear the music you've created turn into something... "
Q. Which other artists have really inspired you throughout 2014?
Julia Spada, Marlene and Beatrice Eli. They are all my best friends and all make such great music. I have had the honor to work with all of them also, so that's really inspiring.

Q. Keljet’s remix was also a very succesful moment for you. Do you see yourself entering the electronic space even more?
Yes I love that remix! I don't see myself doing more electronic dance music, or I mean anything can happen of course, but I love when I get great remixes like the Keljet-remix. It's fun to hear the music you've created turn into something you wouldn't think of doing yourself, it's really inspiring
No clue. I've always wanted to look different from everybody else and I've always loved bright colors and glitter. I think my taste in clothes haven't changes since I was 9 years old haha, I still love the same things. And blue, always always blue, I love it so much, maybe because it's the color of the ocean and I'm obsessed with mermaids.
Q. Your sense of fashion and art greatly illustrate your individualistic nature. Where did your style come from?
Q. Tell us a fun, interesting fact about yourself…
Q. What would you consider to be your dream collaboration?
Frank Ocean and Rihanna
When I was little I was as obsessed with mermaids as I am now, so I begged my mother to make me a mermaid fishtale. The plan was to wear the tale in summertime when I went to the beach. My dream was to sit on a rock in the water and then hear people from a far say " OMG is that a real mermaid??" haha I used to fantasize about that ALOT. I never did that actually, but I got my fishtale (my mom is really great at sewing) and wore it to my 9th birthday party, disney themed of course. When I turned 25 two years ago I had the same party theme actually, and yes, I was Ariel.
I think Heartbreakfree is my most successful release actually. I don't know if you've read about it but blogs all over the world started writing that the production of Gwen Stefani's new single *Baby don't Lie* was very similar to the production of my song *Heartbreakfree* that was released 6 months earlier. That of course brought a lot of attention to my song, and the music video went from 25k views to 230k in like one week! People have been really sweet and I got a lot of new fans because of that, but no I did not expect anything like that to happen at all, it was a crazy week.
Don't panic, organize!
Q. Leave us with some words of inspiration...
