"I hope that every time I put out something new it becomes a different version of myself, because musically, you have to evolve," she added. "You have to try new things. I would get so stuck if I just kept doing the same things over and over again. I've really loved working with new collaborators and things like that."

The singer was recently featured on B.o.B.'s single "Both of Us" and starred in the rapper's music video. The song sold 143,000 copies in its first week and debuted at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
