Back in 2006, Texas native Dondria Nicole Fields took a $15 webcam and created a YouTube channel (username: Phatfffat, a college nickname) to showcase her singing. After building a respectable following, Fields was contacted by producer Jermaine Dupri, who signed her to his label, So So Def. A single (“Can’t Stop”) and a mixtape (Dondria Duets) were released in support of her 2010 debut, Dondria Vs. Phatfffat. She has toured as the opening act on Trey Songz and Monica’s “Passion Pain & Pleasure” tour.
