Jay-Z Chooses 16-Year-Old Girl to Produce New Song
Jay-Z credited a 16-year-old unknown producer on his latest album Magna Carta Holy Grail. The 43-year-old rapper - who has worked with a string of high profile stars including Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams on the songs - decided to work with talented Ebony Oshunrinde after he was given one of her tracks by his friend Travis Scott.
The school girl - who is also known as Wondagurl - has only just finished 11th grade and she revealed she has received a lot of requests to work with her since appearing in the credits of the album. "It's a really good feeling. I want to show young people that they can do it. Travis texted me and said, 'I'm about to change your life.' Usually, that doesn't happen to 16 year-olds. A lot more people want to work with me now. It's pretty cool," she told The Sun.
She helped produce "Crown" on Jay-Z's latest album, which was released on July 4, and her name appears in the credits alongside Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce and Pharrell.
Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail is currently on display in Salisbury Cathedral next to a copy of the real landmark 13th Century document indicating the legal rights of English citizens.
