How quickly can a life change? If you’re Atlanta flame spitter Londynn B, all it takes is three weeks of being one of the shining stars on Rhythm + Flow, Netflix’s first rap music competition show. After being judged by the likes of Big Boi from OutKast, Quavo of Migos, as well as the central panel of judges—Chance the Rapper, Cardi B and T.I.—Londynn ended the season in third place out of hundreds of contestants from around America.
She stands statuesquely tall with her patented Black and blonde tower of hair and powerful flow demanding your attention. Londynn is also beginning to garner the numbers to back up her stardom. Her performance of “Only One” from Rhythm + Flow already has more than 830,000 views on Netflix’s YouTube account since being uploaded on Oct. 30. Compared to the 58,000 views accumulated by Netflix’s YouTube video of Cardi B captioning Instagram photos since Oct. 16, you can see Londynn is on the verge of going viral. That’s enough to change a life.
“It definitely happened overnight, because it went from going to the supermarket to now everybody knows you’re in the supermarket,” Londynn B told ONE37pm.
ONE37pm spoke with Londynn B before her New York City performance at SOBs for her Sounds of Lyfe & SOBS performances about how Cardi B has helped her career on and off the show, how her life changed overnight thanks to Netflix and her plans for helping her daughter understand she’s a star like her mom.
