In the midst of her Travis Scott, “Goosebumps,” cover buzzing all over the web, Teenear releases her original new single, “Something Else“, Which was produced by Grammy nominated producer Velous.

How did your collaboration with producer, Velous, come together? Describe the process of working and writing together.
It’s always great working with new producers because you get so many new sounds out of it and I love the process. This was a new sound for me and it came out magically.”
Rolling Loud has tons of acts secured, with only three women performing. How does it feel being one of the only few selected for the festival? Do you feel your SXSW performance prepared you for this large event?
It’s a blessing in itself to be on that stage with all of those amazing names, I’ve been working so hard and I feel like this is the chance for me to show so many more people what I’m capable of.”
SlipNSlide has been quiet in the industry, but there’s rumors Trina and Trick, are coming back with a new album. How is it being on a label with two legends re-emerging? Will you be featured on their project?
Trick and Trina are extremely supportive they’ve been supportive from the beginning and I love the fact that I’m on a label with such an amazing artists. They’ve been cooking up a lot so when it comes to me, making an appearance on the album, you’ve got to wait and find out.”
“Something Else” sounds like a summer time hit, it sounds more R&B compared to your previous singles. If you had to pick a Hip-Hop artist to remix the track, who would it be?
Ty Dolla $ign.
Seems like R&B singers have defined lanes for themselves. Kehlani, is the edgy one, many coin Tinashe as a sex symbol, Justine Skye is the socialite – what defines Teenear’s lane?
My goal isn’t to be placed in a specific lane. I want to do it all.
