While working closely and intricately with Lauryn, Selina began to grow into her own sound as she was given advice and freedom to do so from her main inspiration and favorite artist, Lauryn Hill herself. Selina Carrera is now working on her own solo projects and getting ready to reintroduce herself to the world.
