Diva Spotlight: 16-Year-Old Ebony Oshunrinde Produced Jay-Z’s ‘Crown’ on “Magna Carta Holy Grail”

Diva Spotlight Ebony Diva Spotlight: 16 Year Old Ebony Oshunrinde Produced Jay Zs Crown on Magna Carta Holy GrailEbony Oshunrinde aka WondaGurl is not your average 16-year-old.  She is the producer of “Crown” which is featured on Jay-Z’s latest album Magna Carta Holy Grail.  She didn’t become a producer overnight. The talented teenager learned how to produce beats after watching a video of Jay-Z and Timbaland in the studio when she was nine years old.

When she was 14, Ebony entered Toronto’s Battle of the Beatmakers competition. She made it to the quarterfinals and was eliminated, however she entered the following year and won.  After creating “Crown,” she sent the track to rapper DJ Travis Scott:

“A few days after, he messaged me and said I’m about to change your life. He called me actually and said you’re on Jay-Z’s album and like congratulations. I felt like crying.”

When asked what’s next, Ebony said: “I want to win a Grammy.”  


I know that’s right! Congratulations to Ebony on being featured on Jay-Z’s new album. Let this be a reminder to all of us that anything is possible!

Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.

Now Playing: Daley “Alone Together” Feat. Marsha Ambrosius

When I first heard the song “Alone Together,” I thought it was a Marsha Ambrosius song. After all, it’s been two years since she released Late Night, Early Mornings. I heard the song again last night and thought to myself “I need to download this ASAP!” I searched “Alone Together Marsha Ambrosius” online and the UK artist Daley popped up. Turns out, it’s his song and she’s featured on it.

No I’m not crazy. If you heard the song you’d think it just her singing too. Marsha Ambrosius and Daley sound so much alike! Without the visuals, it sounds like one person singing. 

Either way, it’s a beautiful song and I can’t wait to add it to my playlist. Check it out!

Where To Buy Jay-Z’s Samsung Commercial “Go Home!” Sweatshirt

Last night during Jay-Z’s Samsung commercial, Vivi stated on twitter “I need Jay’s ‘Go Home!’ shirt. ASAPtually.” I thought I would search online to see if I could find it because I was wondering where he got it too!

Jay-Z’s “Go Home!” sweatshirt is by Surface to Air x Aaron Young. The 100% cotton sweatshirt features a ribbed crew neck, ‘Go Home!’ front dripping graphic, long sleeves, and a ribbed hem.

The sweatshirt is $170 and available at Farfetch. Either this is a hot item or very exclusive because there are only two left in each size!

What do you think? Would you wear it?
