Charmaine was living in a run-down Motel 6, crammed into a single room with her parents and three siblings when she wrote her first song.
“I’d always been musically inclined growing up,” says the Zimbabwe-born, Toronto-based rapper, “but I never took it seriously until we lost our house. That was when I decided music was going to be the way I lifted my family up to a better life.”
Fast forward to the present and Charmaine is one of Canada’s most buzzed-about new artists, with an exhilarating blend of brash hip-hop swagger and addictive R&B appeal that already has critics hailing her as rap’s Queen of the North.
