When Megan released the Kurt Schneider directed video for her first original song “B-e-a-utiful”, the reception spoke for itself. With over 28 million views of the pop single, Harve Pierre, president of Bad Boy, took notice of Megan’s talent. Instantly aware of Megan’s growth, as well as potential, he arranged a meeting between the young singer and Bad Boy founder/hip hop mogul, Sean “Diddy” Combs. Impressed, Bad Boy quickly scheduled a meeting with Jimmy Iovine, CEO of Interscope Records and Megan was signed to the label.

Growing up in the 90s, she was influenced by an array of sounds from the generation prior, including: Queen, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, and various artists from the 70s funk era.
