Starrah: Songbook

Brittany “Starrah” Hazzard went from selling hooks on Instagram to helping craft ‘10s megahits like Rihanna's sneering “Needed Me” and Maroon 5's funk-tinged SZA collab “What Lovers Do.” Her brawny melodies are potent enough to add charge not only to trap songs like 2 Chainz's glittering “Realize” but also to house homages like Katy Perry's “Swish Swish.” And as Nicki Minaj's downcast “Regret in Your Tears” shows, Starrah can also craft hooks with heart.
