Angel Haze is turning a new leaf. Well, actually, it’s not that new. While most people already know the 23-year-old as an established rapper (who gave the middle finger to her label last year), her next EP will show off a lot more of her singing skills.

And if she’s going to be stretching those vocal chords, then she’s found some good company for it. The Detroit native says that she wants to team up with Haim and Sam Smith for this new project.
