Kheris: One person that inspires me is my mom because she pushes me to be the best that I can be!
What was the inspiration behind your debut single?
Corrine: The inspiration behind “Rainbow” is to say that you can create a rainbow right where you are. Even though we cannot do the things we used to do or see friends you can create positive and fun things right where you are.
Hayley: Right now, there are a lot of issues facing people throughout the world, so we wanted a song that would help bring people together and celebrate love!
Jessalyn: Our inspiration is the rainbow, because after a storm a rainbow always appears…When times are tough, we have to look on the bright side and remain positive.
Kheris: The inspiration behind our debut single was to encourage others to just be yourself, believe in yourself, and never give up on your dreams.
If Run The World could collaborate with one artist, who would it be?
Corrine: I would love to collaborate with Ariana Grande!
Hayley: Lennon Stella!
Jessalyn: I would have to say Bruno Mars! I love him and I think it would be awesome to collaborate with him. But…[it] would [also] be incredible if we are able to collaborate with BTS because they are my ultimate favorite group!
Kheris: I would love for Run The World to collaborate with DJ Khaled!
If you could tell fans one thing, what would it be?
Corrine: Always be yourself! You are beautiful just the way you are.
Hayley: Always stay true to yourself and never give up
Jessalyn: I would tell them when times are tough, try to remain positive. Look for the rainbow after a storm!
Kheris: Speak up for what is right…always!
