Mizz Nina started her career in her home country of Malaysia as a rapper in the hip-hop crew First Born Troopz. She rose to local fame as an MC and singer in the group Teh Tarik Crew and launched her solo career in 2010 with a duet with LA-based singer Colby O'Denis, "What You Waiting For," which made her a national star. "Takeover," the lead single from her 2012 album of the same name, was another international collaboration, this time with pop/rap star Flo Rida.
The video for "Around the World," her latest release, merges her fierce personal style and and collaborative spirit with rapper Jay Park's K-pop bravado—all on top of an infectious beat from Park's producer, Cha Cha Malone.
We spoke with Mizz Nina about the video, her influences and upcoming first solo concert:
Where did the idea for the song "Around the World" come from?
You've also recently become an ambassador in Malaysia. Does this connect with the theme of the song?
The video for "Around the World" was filmed in Seoul. What was the experience like?
There were a lot of fashion-forward looks in the video. I know you're also a fashion designer. Did you have any input into the video's look?
Are your dancers going to be performing in your first solo concert in Malaysia that's coming up in May?
You'll be joining with your former hip-hop group, Teh Tarik Crew. Does hip-hop still influence some of your work?
Do you have any dream collaborators that you would want to work with?
Mizz Nina's Around the World Concert is on May 18 at KL Live @Life Center in Kuala Lumpur.
