She was on the reality show before she got signed to Williams' label, and made her dream old-school hip-hop-themed birthday a reality.
After being signed to Good Music, she told MTV with a laugh, "I am the princess of GOOD Music, the first lady of GOOD Music, the baby of GOOD Music. I'm kinda the spoiled brat right now. I could get whatever I want."

Her label boss put her front and center in a sensual clip for "Fade," a song from his 2016 album "The Life of Pablo." He premiered the video at the 2016 VMAs.
