    Joni Mitchell

    "She's genius, the way she tells a story, paints a picture with just a few chords—she puts so much in there."

  2. 2

    Erykah Badu

    "Those last couple records, she was just too ahead of her time—they're fantastic. And she's hilarious, so smart."

  3. 3

    Kendrick Lamar

    "Kendrick is the truth. That's new, that's now. What he's doing, no one else is even trying."

  4. 4

    Esperanza Spalding

    "I thought I could play bass until I met her. Not even close! [Laughs] She just kills it, man."

  5. 5


    "I ain't mad at anything she does. Anything. Those are great songs."

  6. 6

    Janelle Monáe

    "Brilliant. She's so original. I honestly think she could run for president one day. And win."

  7. 7


    "We were just listening to 'Electric Love.' I like that you can't tell what it's inspired by."

    Rita Ora

    "She is a force of nature, that girl—the way that she walks into a room. She's got it."

  9. 9

    Willow Smith

    "I love what she's doing, her and her brother [Jaden]. I want to meet them. It almost happened, but it didn't work out. I want to see what she's making in five years."

  10. 10

    Tori Kelly

    "She'll make it because she does the work. They've got her out there on the road playing, really learning."
