Jasmine Villegas or (Jasmine V) is a stunning 20 year old singer from California who initially got her start in the entertainment industry by acting in various commercials and small roles, including the portrayal of Justin Bieber‘s love interest in his music video for Baby. Shifting her focus to a career in music led Villegas to signing a record deal with Sony Music at the tender age of 16. Since, Jasmine has moved to Interscope Records, her current label. Releasing notable tracks like Paint A Smile prompted Latina Magazine to feature her alongside Becky G on the cover of their February 2014 issue, calling the two “next gen pop stars.”
Jasmine V has an EP that will be debuting later this year and has already released a lead single from it entitled That’s Me Right There featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar. The music video for the bass thumping R&B track can be seen below. Jasmine has got the looks, sound, moves and charm, which can be witnessed on her popular (and inspirational) twitter feed. Villegas’s increasing fan-base, known as “Jasminators,” heighten her appeal by the outward respect and gratitude she consistently shows them. Support a talented artist and purchase That’s Me Right There, which is currently available on iTunes.
As humble and down to earth as Jasmine comes off, I just had to make her my “women crush” this Wednesday.
