WHO: Our Next Up Artist of the Week is Mackenzie Nicole!
WHY: Pop singer Mackenzie Nicole made her debut in 2015 on Tech N9ne's collaboration album Strangeulation, Vol. 2 with their song "Actin Like You Know."
Although it was her first release, the Kansas City teenager was no stranger to the business.
The track was later released as a Mackenzie Nicole stand-alone single -- removing Tech's verse -- as the singer entered the studio to begin recording her debut album.
SOUNDS LIKE: Rita Ora meets Katy Perry!
