J-14 attended singer Jena Rose’s Sweet 16 and caught up with singer/songwrtier Sophie Beem.

You may know Sophie as one of Beyonce‘s proteges. That’s right, Sophie is a 17-year-old singer/songwriter who was handpicked by Queen Bey, and signed to Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment.

We talked with Sophie on the red carpet and asked her all about her new music, and what we could expect.

She said, “Right now I’m in the middle of writing my new album. That’s what I’ve been working on. I’ve been in the studio, that’s why I’m here in LA; writing, writing, writing.”

Unfortunately, Sophie does not have a release date for her album yet, but we’re sure that she’s taking her time to create some AMAZING music. Let’s be real, if Beyonce likes you, you must be good.

Sophie also took to the stage at Jena’s birthday and performed one of her brand new songs. Everyone in the room was going crazy and the energy could be felt throughout the entire venue. We are so excited to hear more of Sophie’s music, but completely understand that it takes time to record good music.
