HAVANA BROWN ON WORKING WITH RICH THE KID AND TAKING HER MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL
Havana Brown made her name by keeping the club circuit on the dance floor before signing a major record deal and touring the world. With more than 294 million streams and 3.2 million singles sold Brown is one of Australia’s greatest musical exports. The Melbourne-born, LA-based artist has toured with the pop world’s biggest – including Britney Spears, Rihanna, Beyonce, and the Pussycat Dolls – and scored big hits with her triple platinum track “We Run The Night”, double platinum “Warrior” and “Big Banana” at a modest platinum.
On her consecutive Billboard dance hits, Brown says, “It’s still club music. It’s always had a pop element to it and I always want to be able to play my music in the club,” she explains. “It’s sexy, it’s got that darkness to it, it’s thumping. I had a vision of having something a lot sexier than I’ve done in the past, which is exciting and liberating.”
On her latest fete “Glimpse” she gets to work with someone who was on her dream list, frequent Kendrick Lamar collaborator Rich The Kid. It’s an exciting new phase for Brown as she propels herself further into her career as an artist branching out with major players in the industry.
She goes on to say, “When I’m in the studio I like listening to music I’m inspired by, and one of the tracks I was playing when we started writing was Rich The Kid’s ‘Plug Walk’,” she explains. “When we’d gotten a lot of the song down, the producer I was working with sent it to Rich The Kid – and he was like, ‘This is hot, I want to do this.’ So he jumped on the track. It was amazing.”
With her talent and determination, we are just getting the beginning of what is yet to come from Havana.
“When I listen to music, I want it to make me feel like I can dream. It’s not all materialistic; it’s just that one day you want to feel that good. It’s the feeling of being in the moment with the artist,” she says.
