Tiana Major9 spoke with Billboard’s Chelsea Briggs and Lele Pons on the red carpet at Billboard’s Women in Music event on Thursday (Dec. 12), chatting about performing her song “Collide” at the event, what she has planned for 2020, and much more.
“Collide” is Tiana’s new collaboration with Earthgang, which was featured in the movie Queen and Slim. “It’s just a love song,” she says. “A beautiful love song. It just spoke to me, man.”
As part of the night celebrating women, Tiana shouted out the women in her life who have most inspired her: Her aunt, her mom, and Ms. Lauryn Hill. “Lyrically, she just gets it on point,” she says of Hill. “And she just knows what to say. She’s always relatable.”
With the new year around the corner, the singer teases that she has a lot coming in 2020. “More music, more visuals, and more shows, definitely,” the East London native declares.
As for what she hopes fans take away from her music, new and old? “That you can do anything you want,” she says. “You can make the music you want. Just be yourself, and you’ll sell.”
