Tiara Nicole Thomas made a name for herself recording covers on YouTube before debuting on Wale's "The Cloud" from his More About Nothing Mixtape.  She's signed to super-producer Rico Love's Division 1 and Interscope Geffen A&M, and is also a model who has appeared on billboards and ads for American Eagle Outfitters.  Still buzzing from Wale's sizzling smash "Bad," the singer/songwriter/guitarist is working on her freshman LP Sallie Mae.

HEARTBEAT OF A CLASSIC
