Feast your eyes on a new photo gallery of Minneapolis native Auburn. This protege of J.R. Rotem (producer of tracks by everyone from Britney Spears to Rick Ross) mixes together hip-hop and, interestingly enough, meditative acoustic pop.
With tracks like “La La La” and “Bad Day,” Auburn’s quickly developing a rep as a standout solo artist, capable of making infectious pop tracks that have real emotional resonance. And listening to Auburn spit fire on songs like “Move,” we can even detect a little Nicki Minaj in the making. She’s got swag in spades, for sure. But there’s also something very ethereal and mystical about her.
