I was a background vocalist for several different artists over the years — Rihanna primarily. I toured with her on and off for four years, and then I toured with Eminem in the midst of that. I did the Soul Train Awards, Emmy Awards, BET Awards. Just doing a lot in the live and album, background space for a few years. I also wrote for other artists. I got my first placement with Melanie Fiona.

I wrote “Watch Me Work” with Melanie Fiona, and I was just doing a lot of session work with different artists — Christina Milian and Mya. I just kind of lived in that space for a while as well before meeting [my husband] Devin. I met him in Atlanta in the midst of writing for other people and we both were in that space of wanting to stop chasing placements and create something where we could maintain our creative control and musical integrity. That’s when we started working on the Jade Novah project.
