Jay-Z boosts schoolgirl's career

Jay-Z has given a schoolgirl a boost in the music industry by picking her to be a producer on his new album.

The hip-hop star - who has also had a hand in the careers of Rihanna and Rita Ora - chose 16-year-old Canadian Ebony Oshunrinde, aka Wondagurl, to be a producer on his record Magna Carta Holy Grail after hearing some of her work.

The beat she made on her laptop ended up in Jay-Z's track Crown.

Ebony told the Toronto Globe and Mail that when she listened to the song she "felt like crying".

"It was a big moment in my life," she added.

Ebony explained that her producer credit came about after she sent her work to producer friend Travis Scott, who works with Jay-Z and passed it on to him.

Soon afterwards Travis sent her a text that said "I'm gonna change your life".

"A few days after that, he called and said that I was on the album," said Ebony.

"I didn't believe it at all, because it's pretty crazy news," she added.
