Dinah Jane is officially on her own as a solo artist and the singer came through to The Cruz Show and Power 106 Perrier® & Juice Studios to talk about her new single “Bottled Up” featuring Cali natives Ty Dolla $ign and Marc E. Bassy, as well as getting to the bottom of her secret celebrity boyfriend.
Since stepping away from her founding members of pop group Fifth Harmony, Dinah is now embarking on her own solo career and while she has credit to her name being a part of the hit-making group, Jane is no stranger to her riding solo.
In the beginning I was kind of already a solo artist, so, I started off by myself. And then at 15 when Simon was just like, “Oh, you’re gonna be tossed into a group, I kind of had to put myself in a drawer and be like, “Alright, I’ll come back to you later.” And then pulling her back out it’s just like wow, it feels like new all over again but in the best way possible.
Dinah also had the opportunity of meeting the late Mac Miller during a studio session where she says she wasn’t expecting to meet the rapper. Explaining that Miller’s death was one of the most emotional celebrity deaths that she’s experienced, the singer says:
He was the first person the first person I shook hands with, was Mac. So, I was like, “Yo, what’s up, I’m Dinah,” and then he was like, “Hi, I’m Mac.” Like, with a smile and I was like of course I know you. And, I didn’t think that would be my last time greeting him. Because two week after my heart like literally dropped.
Dinah also goes on to describe how she deals with having tough days, her relationship with her family and plays a Cruz game of “Guess Who’s Dating Dinah.”
