New York-based rapper Angel Haze recently came third on the BBC's Sound of 2013 new music list. Upon hearing the news, she recalled the day of the birth of her rap pseudonym: "I was like, 'I have to do something. I don't want the mediocre life.' For me, it was a life or death situation," she explained. "I can choose to be happy, or choose to be miserable every day - waiting until I die."
Cat Power's 2012 album Sun was the singer's first entry in the U.S Billboard chart's top 10, with sales of over 23,000 copies. The album also debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Alternative Albums and Indie Albums charts.
