International pop artist, fashion designer and model Didi J just dropped her debut album, Cover Girl, available now on all music streaming platforms.
Dr Fykaa Caan from The Hollywood London Magazine had the chance to sit down with Didi J and discuss her amazing career, upcoming projects and new album Cover Girl, which features appearances by music superstar Iggy Azalea, NBA player and rapper Drummxnd (Andre Drummond), rapper She Real and others.
Didi J has a special persona around her which was obvious right from the very start of the interview. I asked about her life in Serbia, She discussed her childhood and how she knew from a very early age that she wanted to be a star and fashion designer and when she was little she would play with her dolls and make their clothes and style them.
Fashion and music have always been her loves and it was on her journey that Lady Gaga one day at a meeting through mutual friend’s inspired her to make the break and move to the US, if she wanted to follow her dreams and ambition of being a music star. In 2016, Didi J did just this, the Serbian-born star expanded her fanbase into the United States after recording her first songs for the American market at a studio in Atlanta. In 2017, she recorded the hit “Say No More” with rapper Shaggy, and the video was produced by Gil Green, the high-powered producer behind music videos for Nicki Minaj, Jason Derulo, Pitbull and others. In 2018, Didi J embarked on her first US tour and performed in 12 cities, including LA, Miami, Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle, Denver, Houston and San Diego.
In the making of Cover Girl, Didi J worked with renowned producers Jens and Toby Gad, who have worked with Beyonce, Selena Gomez, Madonna and John Legend.
Didi J began her career as a model and eventually launched her own fashion brand, DJ by Didi J, which she exhibited at three fashion shows in Europe. She mentioned that she will be at the Paris Fashion Week next week and is busy preparing for it. Her new fashion line, which features latex, will debut this spring.
A role model to many young girls from around the globe, I asked Didi J what message she would like to give them. She said
‘it would be to always follow your dreams, because they do come true’.
When asked what the future holds she said that she was very excited to be working on her projects and doing what she loves and the feedback from her fans around the world has been phenomenal. To hear her song with Iggy Azalea, please visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=-ndWpbXykTY
