The business side of music
Elaine told Red Bull last year that she is studying law to empower herself as a musician. She plans to use her degree will help her understand the business side of music.
The ‘You’re The One’ hitmaker added that she had no problem juggling her studies and her blossoming music career.
“For me, it’s not a hard thing to do at all. It’s just about dedication and knowing what you want. And I know that law is a part of the business of music and that’s where a lot of artists get tripped up because they don’t understand what is in the fine print. And I’m just not trying to be another artist that got cheated,” she said.
