Young M.A on Almost Cancelling Opening for a Beyoncé Concert, Meeting Jay Z Backstage

Young M.A certainly has a lot of major moments to look back on in 2016, but the "Ooouuu" rapper says one of her biggest almost didn't happen due to scheduling conflicts.

Watch above as the Fuse First explains how she nearly cancelled a last-minute opportunity to open Beyoncé's New York show at Met Life Stadium due to having another show that night. "I was saying a lot of negative things like, 'Yo, bro, we ain't gon' make it, we ain't,'" she recalls of her chance to play for a baseball stadium full of Bey Hive members. "But that moment getting on that stage, man, I ain't ever been that google-y in my life. Looking at the people, really mesmerized, I was a fan of them. I was a fan of the crowd."

M.A also told us about meeting Jay Z backstage at the Bey show, and how she got the notoriously serious rapper to smile in their photo.

Watch the full interview and then below watch our Fuse First artist explain how she lost her thirst for music after her brother's death and how she found it again. Stay tuned throughout the month to see the "Ooouuu" video and lots more exclusives with our new Fuse First artist Young M.A on Fuse, and on the new Fuse TV app on Apple and Android.
