Brittany Talia Hazzard is her real name but professionally is known as Starrah, a very talented songwriter, an R&B and pop singer, and rapper. Starrah was born on June 14th, she’s 27 years old, and she has co-written hits from this same year. She started her career just as a songwriter in 2015, and she has become in a respected professional by the great celebrities. This girl isn’t signed by any discography yet, it could be said that she’s another underrated star but she still being very talented, let’s talk a little about her career and her last EP next to DJ Diplo, called “Starrah x Diplo”, the one that was released this same year.
You might don’t know Starrah, but you are familiar with her work
Yes, as you just read, you do know her work. How do I know this?Because her work is all over the place. For example, she co-wrote the hit “Needed Me”, by the R&B’S superstar Rihanna. And not just RiRi’s songs, she has also co-written Hip-Hop interpreters songs such as “Body” by Dreezy, “Be Real” by Kid Ink’s, “2 Phones” by Kevin Gates, and “No Frauds” by Nicki Minaj, Drake and Lil Wayne.
She has also worked with artists from other genres, Like Katy Perry, which single “Swish Swish” was co-written by Starrah. And we must mention the studio albums she co-wrote, like Travis Scott’s Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight and 5 songs on Calvin Harris’ Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, including “Feels” featuring Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and Big Sean.
This young girl counts with a long list of celebrities who she has worked with, and we can’t deny that she is good at what she does. An EP is an extended play and is used as a denomination for a musical recording format. The duration of an EP is too long to be considered as simple and too short to be considered as an album. Starrah launched hers next to Dj Diplo on September from this same year, and if you listen to it, you will realize that is really good.
The EP counts with 5 songs, that’s why it is an EP. “I did a whole EP with Starrah,” Said Diplo during a June interview with Beats 1 Radio’s Zane Lowe “It’s coming out on Mad Decent. I’m really happy with her and excited about the EP, “Starrah is a songwriter of course and you possibly already know who she is. She’s written lots of amazing records. But she’s one of my favorite voices.”
On the EP, you will find names as “Imperfections”, “You know it”, “Zoo”, “Always Come Back” and “Swerve”, and you also can find these songs on Youtube at the Mad Decent’s account. Though Starrah only counts with 11,5k followers on Twitter she already has some people supporting her work and we could say that in the future, she will be a known as an interpreter and as the amazing songwriter she already is.
