We’re back with Fresh Tunes Friday this week, and in the virtual guest chair was Serbian pop artist/fashion designer Didi J, who recently dropped her new single ‘Murcielago’ (yes, named after the supercar). She talks to us about what it was like collaborating with Iggy Azalea for the track, her previous collaborations with other global pop superstars like Shaggy, as well as her plans for world domination (and the hard work necessary to achieve it). Tune in!
