Brittany Hazzard has co-written hits for high-profile artists and records material in a similarly melodic, low-profile contemporary R&B style as Starrah. The career of the Delaware native achieved liftoff in 2015, when Kid Ink and DeJ Loaf recorded "Be Real," a song she co-wrote, and took it to number 12 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart. The momentum was sustained with an impressive string of hits that reached the Top 20 of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop and/or Hot 100 charts, including Kevin Gates' "2 Phones," Rihanna's "Needed Me," Dreezy's "Body," Travis Scott's "Pick Up the Phone," Drake's "Fake Love," Nicki Minaj's "No Frauds," Halsey's "Now or Never," and Calvin Harris' "Feels." Just prior to ascent, Hazzard debuted as Starrah with the Noah "40" Shebib-produced "Low." Collaborations with G-Eazy, Belly, Cashmere Cat, Big Sean, and Charli XCX, as well as additional solo singles such as "Rush" and the Diplo-produced "Imperfections," arrived during the flood of chart placements.
