The front woman of R&B/Soul band The Internet, has stepped out on her own with the release of her debut album Fin. Following the release of her first two solo songs “All About Me” and “Body” last month, Syd is ready for the world.
After receiving a Grammy nomination with The Internet’s last LP, Ego Death, the singer/songwriter/producer returned to her Los Angeles home studio to work on “Fin”.
Syd’s experimental, freedom laced creativity flows across the 12-track project, which includes additional production from the likes of MeLo-X, Hit-Boy, Haze, Rahki, and Internet member Steve Lacy, who produced “All About Me.”
“This album is not that deep, but I feel like this is my descent into the depth I want the band to get to,….For me, this is like an in-between thing — maybe get a song on the radio, maybe make some money, have some new shit to perform.”

During an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 on Thursday Syd further shared: “I grew up on pop music. My first albums were Brandy’s first album, Usher’s ‘My Way,’ *NSYNC’s ‘No Strings Attached, and a Britney Spears album. On this one you’ll hear more of the Brandy influence. Maybe some of the Usher influence.”
