Karina Pasian - 16 At War

Posted 8 years ago
Producer:
C. Tricky Stewart
Album:
First Love

When three of the top executives in the music industry partake in a high-stakes bidding war for an artist’ services, they must be good, right?  Well, that is exactly what Diddy (Bad Boy), Jimmy Iovine (Interscope) and Jay-Z (then, Def Jam) did just last year when teenage singing-sensation Karina Pasian arrived on their radar.  Though he has since stepped down as the President of Def Jam, Jay-Z offered Pasian a “seven-figure deal,” according to the artist’s camp, with her debut album set to arrive in stores this year.  To kick off the project, Pasian has released the buzz single 16 At War.  Written and produced by en vogue tandem, The-Dream and C. Tricky Stewart, Pasian convincingly tackles the issues of stress and peer pressure at the age of 16.
