Growing up a fan of Beyonce, Mariah Carey, and Michael Jackson, singer, songwriter, and model Pia Mia found it natural to mix pop, R&B, and hip-hop. Born Pia Mia Perez in Guam, she launched her career by uploading videos to sharing sites, earning over 17 million views and the attention of Chris Brown’s manager, Abou Thaim. Thaim brought in producer Nic Nac for a 2013 cover version of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home.” It helped when social media lit up over an a cappella version of the song — performed at a dinner in the Kardashian household with Kanye West in attendance — which was posted by Kim later in the year. The song landed on her debut EP, The Gift, which was released by the Interscope label in 2014. In 2015 she dropped both the “F**k with U” single featuring G-Eazy, plus “Do It Again” with Chris Brown and Tyga.
