Rina Sawayama (born 16 August 1990) is a Japanese-British singer-songwriter, model, and actress based in London. In 2017, she self-released her debut extended play, Rina. After signing to Dirty Hit in 2020, she released her debut studio album, Sawayama, to widespread critical acclaim.
Sawayama was born on 16 August 1990 in Niigata, Japan. She lived there until the age of five, after which her family decided to move to London, where she was raised and currently resides. She holds an indefinite leave to remain (ILR) visa in the UK. According to Sawayama, the family's original plan was to return to Japan when she turned ten, but they ultimately chose to stay in London. Due to her inability to communicate in English, Sawayama struggled to understand her teachers and peers. She eventually connected with others through pop music. At age sixteen, she began posting music covers on Myspace, and during sixth form she formed a hip hop group called Lazy Lion.
Sawayama attended Magdalene College, Cambridge where she studied politics, psychology and sociology. She graduated from the university with a degree in political science.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
