Reverbnation describes her sound as “fresh, melodic, and somewhat reminiscent of early Britney Spears.”

In an interview with ChanLo, she talked about her early start in music:

Since I can remember, I’ve dreamt of making it in music. According to my parents, I memorized every song lyric from my favorite Disney movie before I could even speak in full sentences, so apparently they knew I was musically inclined.

“A good guy appreciates a girl who’s beautiful, has a brain, and loves herself,” she replied.

As far as exes go, Reid explains that an ex-boyfriend was her inspiration for her song, “Letters to My Ex.”

“I was in a position where I was no longer speaking to an ex, but I had so many things I wanted to say. As somewhat of a form of therapy, I started writing those sentiments down in emails that I knew I would never send,” she said.

Wiggins did post this Instagram picture, tagging his girlfriend.
