Atlanta, Georgia was the launching pad for successful Rhythm & Blues acts such as Usher, TLC, Monica, and Ciara. The next songbird set to take off from the ATL is ISO Music Group artist Natasha Mosley.
With Blues and Soul embedded in her DNA (she’s a relative of legendary singer Bessie Smith), Mosley took her experiences singing in church with her when she became part of The Feisty Girl Project. She later joined another all female group, Juice, which was started by former Xscape member Tameka “Tiny” Cottle.
Eventually, Mosley decided to break from harmonizing as part of a troop, and the young singer-songwriter stepped out as a solo performer. Her new turn led to providing vocals for songs with Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Tyga, and YG, but the crowning moment so far in Mosley’s career is her debut album Rose Hall.
The 17-track introduction features production by FK1, K.E. On The Track, and Atlanta’s own Zaytoven. Natasha and Zay cliqued so well together the duo is planning to unleash even more musical collaborations in the near future.
AllHipHop.com connected with Natasha Mosley for the “3 Questions” series. The interview includes the “Anything” starlet discussing some of her most memorable work with other musicians, her favorite girl groups, and three talents she has already conquered.

Out of all the Hip Hop artists you’ve collaborated with, which one was the most fun to work with?
Honestly, I enjoyed all the collabs I’ve done, because I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really amazing artists. However, I did shoot a video with Tyga for my single “Tattoo” which was fun because he was really funny and easy to work with. And Zay and I always have a blast. We vibe so well we ended up recording an entire project together called Naytoven, which will be out later this year.
Rank the following girl groups in order from best to worse: The Supremes, En Vogue, TLC, Destiny’s Child, SWV, Danity Kane, and Xscape.
I’m a fan of them all and grew up on most of them, whether it was my taste or my parents. And I’m a huge Beyoncé fan, so this is really just an unfair question for me. As a female artist, I know how hard it is for our voices to be heard, so I have too much respect for these artists and women to say who’s the best to worse. But I will say TLC and Destiny’s Child are my all time favorites. And I have to give respect to the Supremes, because they paved the way for us all.
On your single “Anything,” you say, “Anything she can do, I can do better.” What are three things you know you’re one of the best at doing?
The three things I know I’m one of the best at are singing, cooking and making people smile.
