Natalie La Rose is one cosmopolitan lady. The Amsterdam born singer has parents from Suriname and now lives in Los Angeles where she is taking over the pop and R&B world with her sultry voice. Fun fact: Natalie played Taylor Mckessie in the Dutch musical version of High School Musical.
But her career really took off when at an ESPY Awards after party she approached Flo Rida and said that they would work together one day. She impressed him so much with her confidence that he invited her to his studio. This has lead to a four year musical relationship.
Now, her hit “Somebody”, which samples Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” is a frontrunner for song of the summer. She also knows how to pick ’em, collaborators wise. “Somebody” features Jeremih and her second single “All Around The World” features Fetty Wap.
Next month she will be hitting the road with Debby Ryan and Bea Miller opening up on Fifth Harmony’s Reflection Tour.
