There are several #shelit challenges making there way across social media, and the song is even making traction in strip clubs across Atlanta, including the infamous Magic City, Oynx and Strokers. We caught up with the Memphis boss chic to find out her secret to getting her music buzzing in the Southeast.
Q. How did you come up with the song "She Lit"
I wanted a fun, clean and upbeat song that would show people a side of me that they’ve never seen…a song that all ages could dance to, work out to and just have a good ol time to.
Q People have really been feeling your new single, are you surprised at the reaction?
This is my first record so I am excited and surprised…with both the supporters and the non-supporters. I had no expectations but I knew the song was dope and I just hoped that everyone else would feel the same way.
Q We've seen the billboards, we've seen the "She Lit" challenges on Instagram, We've seen you share the stage with T.I. Are you still independent or have you signed with a major?
Yes, God is definitely working in my favor!
However, I’m still independent…the first lady of RRE!
Q. What's a typical Friday night like with Gabrielle Nicole?
A typical Friday night could be out on the town, building my brand and networking..going from club to club getting my song played…
In the studio working on a masterpiece…at home plotting and planning my next moves..traveling or taking a night off to relax, maybe sip some wine and watch the Lifetime channel, which is my fav!
Q. There's a rumor going around that you may have a collaborations in the works with other big name artists, are you able to drop us a hint?
Hmmm, you’ll have to follow me on Instagram to find out. @msgabriellenicole I’ll start throwing hints soon!
Q. Your first single you worked with super producer Drumma Boy, who has produced for Jeezy, Gucci Mane, Yo Gotti and others, what was the experience like working with Drumma?
Drumma Boy is extremely talented and he’s
from Memphis, like me. Working with him was a great experience.
Everything was hands on, and we made magic.
I had a vision of how I wanted the beat to sound and he mastered it.
Q. Last question, fellas want to know what do they need to do, to get a shot with Gabrielle Nicole, tell us a few do's and dont's.
