Millie Bobby Brown could just be the next female popstar in the making, as she reportedly wants to launch a music career.
The Stranger Things star is best known for her acting, but she wants to take this one step further and branch out into the recording industry by the time she turns 16, according to a source from The Sun.
‘Millie is brilliantly talented. She has millions of Stranger Things fans but also has a passion for singing,’ the source told the publication.
‘She already has at least seven songs she loves but isn’t planning to release anything until after she turns 16 in February, partly as her schedule is crazy.’
The source later added that singing is ‘natural’ for the teenager, and that she is deciding on whether to launch her career through either a feature on a dance song or her own solo effort. She is also reportedly in talks to join 3 Beat Records, which is home to artists such as Cheryl, Pixie Lott and Sigma – with the star also appearing in the video for their single Find Me.
Millie is no stranger to singing – having previously shown off her vocal skills as she impersonated Amy Winehouse on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
And there could be a collaboration with rapper Drake on the horizon after Millie previously admitted to turning to him for advice. She also appeared in the music video for his hit single, In My Feelings.
‘He invited me to his concert. And now we talk all the time. I ask his advice,’ she told W magazine.
She also previously spoke about their friendship on the red carpet of the Emmy Awards in 2018, calling him a ‘great friend’.
‘He’s honestly so fantastic,’ she said. ‘A great friend and a great role model. We just texted each other the other day and he was like, “I miss you so much”, and I was like, “I miss you more.”’
However, fans were quick to point out the age gap between the two – while Millie is 15, Drake is 32 – but the actress quickly defended their friendship, as she stated she was ‘lucky’ to have people in the industry help ‘further her career’.
‘Why you gotta make a lovely friendship your headline? [sic]’ she wrote on Instagram stories. ‘You guys are weird.
‘I’m lucky to have people in the business extend their time to help me further my career and offer their wisdom and guidance.’
