Upon experiencing enormous success as a hitmaking songwriter for the likes of Zendaya, Tamar Braxton, and Jason Derulo, Tiffany Fred has established herself as a powerhouse amongst the who's-who in the music industry. Her hard work paid off in the form of a Grammy Award, which she won for her contributions on Jennifer Hudson's 2009 self-titled album. (She also received a nomination in 2014 for Fantasia's Side Effects Of You.)

Now she's stepping to the forefront to display the full scope of her artistry as a well-rounded artist who can not only pen the songs you love, but deliver sonically as well. Her seven-song debut EP, titled Drake, draws inspiration from Toronto's golden child and is a creative take on the Drizzy records that resonated with her most. Written and executive produced by Fred, and co-produced by Mitchell Owens and Cameron Johnson (whose team also added all the live instruments), Fred reached back to jazz, a genre with inflections and textures that have always been an inspiration in shaping music. Listen to Drake below.
