“I am very conscious of my roots. That is the stuff I always want to keep. I am very vocal about. If I am uncomfortable, it doesn’t matter who I am working with, I back up a bit. For example, I have been working with Pharrell (Williams), working on some songs, and one of them, he was like, ‘this is the one’. I was like ‘no’. I sent him another one and he was like ‘this is better’. So it is not even about the name., I don’t compromise what I love and what I do”.
