TEN TALKS TO FLOWEROVLOVE
At just 16-years-old, rising artist Flowerovlove is making big waves. The South London native has had a crazy year. Flowerolove – real name Joyce Cisse – released her debut EP Think Flower earlier this year, whilst also walking at Paris Fashion Week and starring in campaigns for Gucci and Pangaia. Her lyrics are mellow, warm and touch on sustainability and preserving the Earth. Now, she releases her latest single “Saturday Yawning”. Here, got the lowdown from Flowerovlove:

What’s one song you wish you’d written?

What’s your party trick?
“I can roll my tongue in a shape of a flower.”
If you could collaborate with any musician – dead or alive – who would it be?

One album you think has been instrumental to your sound?
“Ah, well the Currents album by Tame Impala.”

What’s the best thing about being 16-years-old?
“Everyone’s reaction when they find out is ‘GASP, oh my god your six-TEEN?’ It cracks me up every time. Also can’t forget the daily hugs from my mum.”

“Chanel in the ’90s, thé looks, thé campness everything was just exquisite. Also probably Louis Vuitton. I really really love the world Virgil Abloh created, like that last season was insane.”
