Angel Haze first hit the music scene in 2012, and purposely leaked her debut full length album Dirty Gold in December 2013. The same month, Haze recorded her own version of Same Love by Macklemore including her own original verse which quickly went viral. In an interview with The Guardian, she talked openly about her pansexuality, saying “Love is boundary-less. If you can make me feel, if you can make me laugh – and that’s hard – then I can be with you.”
