Southern California native Candice Boyd is a contemporary R&B singer and songwriter signed to major-label Epic. She entered the industry during the early 2010s as a vocalist featured in the background and foreground of tracks by Flo Rida, David Guetta, and Nelly. She eventually began an association with Ne-Yo and joined his Compound University roster, after which she recorded with Nicki Minaj, as heard on The Pinkprint. In 2015, Boyd appeared on Ne-Yo's "She Said I'm Hood Tho" and picked up her first songwriting credit as the co-composer of Tamar Braxton's "Never." The following year, she appeared on "Rosecrans" by DJ Quik and Problem, and made her solo debut for Epic that June with the French Montana collaboration "Damn Good Time," a track subsequently given extra exposure on the playlist Epic Lit. "Make Me Over," Boyd's second single, arrived in March 2017. A couple months later, she was featured on Eric Bellinger's Cannabliss EP.
