What’s your artist name and where are you from?

Taylor Rae. I’m from Cincinnati, OH.

Why do you love music?

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In 5 years I’ll definitely be a household name. I’ll be touring, still recording, still writing. I’ll be using my platform to bring attention to issues that I feel are important to the black community, black women especially. I see myself using my very large platform (that I will have built by then) to provoke change in a positive way. I don’t want to JUST inspire young people to pursue their goals and dreams; I want to actually be in a position where I’m able to offer tangible resources to them too.

What do you want to accomplish in life?

I think that is something that is constantly going to change for me. Right now, I hope my streams hit in the millions for at least one song on my mixtape coming out. I have an herbal beauty brand named Princess Mudd Herbal Beauty that I…
