Jasmine Villegas began her music career at 11 years old, when a music executive was surprised to hear such a big voice coming from such a little person. Since then, Villegas has gone on to release a mixtape, star in a music video with Justin Bieber, and is set to drop her first EP with Interscope Records.
Despite her growing fan base and the buzz around her EP, Jasmine doesn’t think she’s “famous.” She’s just sharing passion with those who want to listen, creating a digital footprint in a new kind of music industry.
Fusion’s Alicia Menendez sat down with the rising star to talk about how she got started, what it was like working with the Biebs, and how she plans to change an industry that too often ends up changing young artists.
