  1. She Likes A 'Damn Good Time'

    Candice Boyd's hit song "Damn Good Time" was just released this year but is already making its rounds! Candice's vocals are accompanied by French Montana's rap on this song. Let's just say that "Damn Good Time" is a damn good song!

  2. Ne-Yo's Protégé

    Candice Boyd is so damn good that she was signed to Ne-Yo and Epic Records at the same damn time! L.A. Reid signed Candice on the spot after hearing the singer-songwriter sing for the first time. Candice is definitely going to keep making waves in the music industry.

  3. Tours With A Legend

    Before signing with Ne-Yo and Epic Records, Candice went on a world tour in 2013 with a legend! Which legend? Well he's the type to tell you he wants to spend his life with you. Get it? She went on tour with Eric Benet! Not only did she go on tour with him, he even personally asked her. Now that is a damn good thing!

  4. From The Computer To The Stage

    Almost a decade ago, eight years to be exact, you could find Candice uploading videos of herself on YouTube. Her persistence in posting to the internet ultimately led her to meeting people, getting hit up in her DMs by record labels and finally signing with Ne-Yo.
