Coming out of Fort Worth, Texas, Enchantingbegan to pursue musicaround the age of 18. After graduating high school,shewas quick to begintaking music seriously,taking to the studio to record “a little mixtape” that boosted both her career and her passion for music.The tape, titled Love & Drugs, was an intro to Enchanting’s current style—less lax and forward thinking, she admits she sounded like “a little baby” on the tapethat served as the roots for her current style. Regardless, the tape itself was well receivedbyEnchanting’s peers, pushing her to keep recording and refining her new take on R&B.
“I had to get comfortable with my voice,” Enchanting recalls. “Staying inthe studio and constantly recording, it helps me find the style I can be good at.” She defines her style as something chill with a dash of neo-Soul, a twinge of old school R&B, with some modern trap flavor sprinkledin. “It’s like Trap-n-Blues,” Enchanting expresses. The genre blend is perfect for Enchanting, who uses music as a vehicle of expression, not only for herself but for others. “Other people can relate to the things I say. I might help somebody through any situation, they can listen to me and find peace.”

White Did It for making the connectionbetween herself and Atlanta rap icon Gucci Mane. “I guess he told Gucci about me,” Enchanting explainswith excitement and gratitude. “Gucci called methe next day.”
