Once misunderstood, the electronic dance sound has infiltrated the hip-hop culture and catapulted Stateside artists to an international stratosphere. Just ask the Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Pitbull and…Dutch singer Eva Simons.
Hailing from Amsterdam, the 28-year-old “I Don’t Like” singer is currently rocking out with party anthem-making crew LMFAO, continuing the success she built from her Afrojack collab (and Billboard mega-hit) “Take Over Control.” Her résumé also boosts working with Chris Brown and will.i.am.
Signed to Interscope Records, she’s perfectly housed in a space that has championed the rocker-pop-house trifecta. Before jetting off to apologize for “Party Rocking,” Eva chatted with Vixen about the relationship that sparked “I Don’t Like,” the evolution of her mohawk and why she loves, loves, loves Azealia Banks.
