Hi, I’m DEJA and I’ve been making music since… the age of 13. My family are big on music. I had tapes, records and CD’s all over the house growing up. Being the little drama Queen I was (and still am loool), it made sense that I wanted to be one of those divas I saw on the CD’s. 

I started making music because… Well after finishing my contemporary dance degree, I didn’t wanna do contemporary dance anymore! Like I say, music had been in my life from day 1 so after graduating, I just went back to my roots essentially.  

If I were to describe my music, I’d say it sounds like… a verbal eye roll. My music is like me tbf (to be frank). Unapologetic. Matter of a fact. But still makes you smile. I write really honestly. I’ve got tracks about my one night stands, my love for women, playing into one’s sexuality, being a bad bitch, being a sad bitch. It goes on. But yeah, my upcoming releases are definitely a sigh at the weak-ass waste boys in the world.

I feel most inspired when… there’s some kinda drama in my life. Good or bad. I’m a Gemini. I get bored easily and like to be entertained.

I’m really proud of… my family and my team. 

The first time I heard “So Excited” by Janet Jackson & Khia I felt… understood for all my sins. 

I’ll never forget when… I asked Alexa to play my EP for the first time. Can’t lie. I was gassed. She even said my name right loool.

When I hear the word “hoe” I feel… nonchalant. There’s no offense in these kinda words for me. Own your shit girls!

“We’ve been brought down for way too long. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it til they hate; women are superior. We deserve to hear and see it.” – DEJA

I feel the most empowered when… I’m naked. 

My latest release is my EP Intro and it’s sick – go listen x

When people listen to my music, I hope they feel… invincible & sexy AF. 

It’s important to empower women because… we’ve been brought down for way too long. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it til they hate; women are superior. We deserve to hear and see it.

My biggest role models are… my bad ass mother and sister. They influence my writing all the time. The strength they’e been showing me from young is everything. In music though, divas like Rihanna, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce fuel me.

Looking back at this time of my life 10 years from now, I’ll remember it being… exactly how it was supposed to be. Filled with sex, music and all the vibes.

If I met my 14 yr old self, I’d tell her that… she should keep doing what she’s doing. Life’s gonna be messy and hard but she’s strong AF so just keep the fuck at it.  

Anything else? Gotta let you know – I’m working on my next single. It’s one that’ll make you feel like “THAT bish”. It’s called “Boujee” and it’s gonna bang! Keep your eyes on me x
