I like this popstar chick named Sabi. You’re probably like, who’s that? Well, Sabi is Britney Spears‘ pop star protégé and she’s the fun brown girl on my favorite gym song that literally makes me fist pump on the treadmill three times a week, Cobra Starship’s “You Make Me Feel … ” She made the chorus fun. Here’s a biography excerpt on the Los Angeles native from Sabi’s own website below:
As a kid growing up in Inglewood, Calif., Jenice Sab-bion Dena Portlock (known as Sabi) spent every other weekend watching MTV at her father’s house after her parents divorced … A singer, songwriter, and actress, Sabi is now getting her chance thanks to signing with Prescription Songs and Warner Bros. Records. Sabi is currently in the studio with Benny Blanco, Klas (from the Teady Bears), Diplo, Ammo, DJ Cirkut, The Cataracs and The Co-Stars cooking up the tracks that will appear on her debut album for Warner Bros. Records.
“I’m a pop artist, but I want to bring some rawness and urban swagger to the table,” Sabi says. “I’m really inspired by artists like Lauryn Hill, Bat For Lashes, Florence and the Machine, and Lykke Li. They are strong women with a unique point of view who have something substantial to say. I want to be able to address real issues in my songs, but still keep it sounding fun. It’s okay to have party songs, but I don’t want to make cookie-cutter music. I’m looking forward to everyone hearing what I can do.”
