Exclusive SXSW Interview: Darnaa

SXSW is underway, and one of the many musical acts you can see at the festival is R&B/pop singer Darnaa. I was happy to have a chance to catch up with her before her SXSW performance via email, and in the interview, you’ll learn more about how her musical family, what the song “Surv!val” means to her, and the special message she has for her fans.

You can learn more about Darnaa and her music at her website and you can keep up with Darnaa on Twitter.

Simmons, as Kanye and Nas), but there was also D’ANGELO. And boy did he not disappoint.
