Dej Loaf is an American singer, rapper and songwriter. She received global recognition with her song, ‘Try Me’ which featured on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and was certified gold by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). She began her career in 2011, and has launched three mixtapes, an extended play and an album. Most of her singles have peaked on the US music charts, especially in the R&B and rap music genres. She has featured in the songs of popular music artists, such as ‘Kid Ink’, ‘Lil Durk’ and ‘The Game’. Some of her songs are a reflection of her tragic past. Her father was murdered when she was just four, hence she grew up in seclusion and took to music to vent her loneliness. At the age of nine she composed music and wrote songs as a means to express herself. In order to step closer towards the career she dreamed, Dej eventually dropped out of a nursing course in college, and took up music full-time. She is currently ranked amongst the best R&B artists of present times, and is a popular name on the internet. In 2014, she signed a record deal with the mega record label ‘Columbia Records’ and has continued working under its banner.
