While Lauryn Hill's legacy may be set in stone, her 18-year-old daughter, Selah Marley, is just beginning to carve her own.
Marley currently is expanding her resume as a model and has already worked with the likes of Chanel, Calvin Klein, Beyoncé's Ivy Park line and Kanye West's recent Yeezy collection. Most recently is covering the April 2017 issue of the U.K. Sunday Times style magazine.
During the cover story, the rising model discusses what it's been like working with the likes of 'Ye and Bey.
"I think a lot of times the image that Black women have in the media is quite negative," Marley says, reflecting on working on the Ivy Park campaign, along with SZA and Black-ish star Yara Shahidi. "I think Beyoncé working to really empower and show the grace and beauty and intelligence in young Black women is really beautiful."
She also talks about her first time ever meeting West during the in-depth profile.
"I was getting anxiety, like, yo, I wanna tell Kanye I love him," she admitted. "He’s been through a lot of persecution in the media and by people, but it doesn’t stop him from being who he is."
Additionally, Marley also reveals that she has something both exciting and creative in the works, detailing her own ideas for the near future.
"I’m working on a project that basically expresses the entirety of myself," Marley added. "I feel like modeling can be a little surface. I think this project is really just the purest expression of myself and things I’ve internalized for a long time."
She then lets us in on the secret that she's still figuring out all the details.
"It’s a little bit of a blog," the teenager explained. "I don’t really know what to call it, but it’s going to be a really interactive, visually enticing experience."
Sounds like Selah Marley definitely inherited her mother's boundless creativity.
