Artists today come a dime a dozen, unless you meet someone like singer/songwriter Brejae. Bold and outspoken, she has her own style, her own sound and did we mention that she might just might be a Mermaid? Having just launched her single “Million Dollar Baby,” we caught up with her to find out more about her and trust us, she is just as dope as her single.

On Twitter you call yourself “Yung Merm,” what is the story behind that?
I’m a Mermaid. It’s a lifestyle.
Who inspires your musically?
Michael Jackson & Madonna
You do these things called “Bre-mixes.” What is a Bre-mix?
A Bre-mix is a recipe! 1 cup of the original. Lots of bass. And a huge splash of Merm.
Let’s talk about your new single “Million Dollar Baby.” What inspired the single and the use of the Aaliyah sample?
First of all Aaliyah is one of the rawest that’ll ever do it!
But one day while hiking Runyon Canyon, I noticed a random hawk in the sky. I was like, ‘I feel you.’
Your style seems to be very dope and edgy. What inspires your style?
I’m fascinated by different cultures. I mix it up according to my mood. I just do me.

I want to inspire. I want to entertain. I want to create timeless art. I want to make an impact. I want to make people smile and feel good.
What can we expect from your debut project?
Feel good, fun, IDGAF music that you can party AND ride to.
Being a new artist, what do you want your current and new fans to know about you?
I love to create. It’s the best feeling in the world. To watch a vision come to life and see people feel you is also the best ever! I do what I love.
