Arlissa

She is the eldest child of a German father and an American mother, Arlissa grew up in London. Only 20, she signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, joining a carefully curated roster that includes J. Cole, Rita Ora, Jay Electronica, Willow Smith, Rihanna, M.I.A., Shakira, Meek Mill, Solange Knowles, and Calvin Harris.

With her first official single, “Sticks and Stones,” set to come out next month and still shy of her 21st birthday, she already collaborated with Nas on the song “Hard to Love Somebody.” Twice her age, Nas risks looking like a creepy uncle next to her—but it’s a charmed introduction to the music industry nonetheless.
