Detroit's self-styled "Queen of R&B Trap" Neisha Neshae overcame an abusive childhood and the incarceration and death of her mother to carve out a career for herself, eventually signing to a major label. A talented high school basketball player, she took solace in music after her mother's death as a way to channel her negative experiences. After dropping out of school, she self-released a mixtape and an EP while working at Taco Bell. Hard work and self-belief finally paid off when, in 2016, at the age of 19, she broke out with the single "On a Cloud," which chronicled her triumph over adversity. Produced by local figure Helluva, the spacy, psychedelic, heavily Auto-Tuned jam showcasing her smooth soulful vocals became a monster hit on Detroit radio and won her slots on two high-profile local showcase gigs. ~ John D.
