Growing up, Hues was surrounded by a plethora of different sounds that inspired her own music: Destiny's Child, Aaliyah, Dionne Warwick, Erykah Badu and Beenie Man (to name a few). As a child, several illnesses consumed her voice and disabled her ability to sing for almost five years. This mishap allowed her to appreciate and hone her purpose as a musician later on.


Her latest single "Breakfast", released in 2021, highlights Hues' soothing voice, which remarkably resembles Aaliyah's–calming enough to lull a baby to sleep.
