*Kanye West is working with a 17-year-old singer he believes will be music’s next female pop superstar.
Pia Mia Perez, a singer-songwriter, actress and model from Guam, is BFFs with Kanye’s soon-to-be sister-in-law Kylie Jenner. She gained Internet attention last year when her cover of Drake’s hit “Hold on We’re Going Home,” performed in front of the Canadian rapper and Kanye at a dinner party hosted by Kylie’s family, went viral.

A source told Radar Online: ”Kanye is producing some tracks for her and he’s quite involved. He believes she could be the next Rihanna. [He] thinks she’s young, fresh and hip – totally his target audience.
“He’s been consulting her on a lot of his creative projects, including the Kanye x APC collection.”
In fact, Pia, who signed a deal with Interscope in February, has reportedly annoyed Ye’s fiancée Kim Kardashian because the teen has quickly become his most trusted adviser.
The source added: “Kanye’s creative team was pretty shocked that he would use a teenager as his confidante. And Kim was actually kind of agitated by it, because he doesn’t usually want her input on design stuff. She was a little jealous.”
