Estelle, NERVO, and More Share Their Top Tunes to Rock the Runway

Publish date:

Although everyone's eyes are fixed on the runway, it's actually the music they're hearing that's setting the tone for the show. Marissa Webb’s front row certainly pumped up the volume with a lineup of music mavens like Estelle, NERVO, Elle Varner, and up-and-comer Olivia Somerlyn. Glam caught up with these stylish songstresses to find out what tracks they would play to rock the runway:

Your No-Fail Soundtrack for a Fashion Show: “Generally, I would think Steve Aoki or Calvin Harris because it makes you excited, you could use the lights and everything in here. When it’s calm, and they’re [the models] walking in a straight line, it’s like, ‘I’m awake, I swear I’m awake.’”

From Your Own Repertoire: “My song, I would choose 'Make Her Say.' It’s fantastic, it has a great beat, and it’s a bit rugged with the bass in it.”

Your No-Fail Soundtrack for a Fashion Show: “I Want Your Sex” by George Michael,

From Your Own Repertoire: I would say “Revolution.” I really like that record for the runway, or “It Feels,” which is one we haven’t released yet, but it’s coming.

Elle Varner:

Your No-Fail Soundtrack for a Fashion Show: “‘Back That A-- Up' by Junvenile. I don’t know; it’s gets everybody bumping.”

From Your Own Repertoire: "So Fly”

Olivia Somerlyn:

Your No-Fail Soundtrack for a Fashion Show: “I would say my new single, ‘Parachute,’ it’s more of a dance-type song than I’ve ever done before. I love it; I just had so much fun writing it. I wrote it with Nick Jonas, and he produced it. We were all dancing around when we were writing it. It’s a really fun song, and I think it would sound great on the runway. Maybe one day!”
