MEET SAMANTHA SELOLWANE, NYC-BASED RECORD EXECUTIVE, SNEAKER LOVER, GEM SPITTER X EVERY BIT OF BLACK GIRL MAGIC.
By now, you're familiar with our Chick Chat series - right? For us, it's so important to highlight the women who are making moves in their respective fields because #Chickspiration transcends all. After getting our Kobe on with this fun-loving Dallas chef, we hopped a flight up north to NYC for a peek inside the world of an artists champion.
Anthony Hamilton. Usher. Alicia Keys. Chris Brown. Ro James.
No, this isn't #squadgoals (well, maybe it is...), it's the IRL artist roster of uber inspirational RCA exec and Queens ("East Elmhurst all day") native, Samantha Selolwane. We scored a very, very valuable sit down in her New York office and, needless to say, the stage was set for some epic magic + plus a few words of wisdom because God was looking out like that. The minute you browse the pictures you'll see that Sam's space is anything but the traditional grey-cubicle steez. Red walls, pillow-packed corners, plaqued up shelves, #blackgirlmagic in a bottle, and a balcony overlooking the city just steps from her office door. Not that we'd expect anything less from a woman whose work ethic, and likely her appreciation for speaking things into existence, too, has resulted in her climbing the ranks from Morgan State radio personality to that of a big label VP shaping the careers (and the way you hear music, FYI) of some of the world's biggest musical forces.
No big deal.
