With a college degree under her belt, the 24-year-old model, writer, and actress is now leaning into the industry. In the past couple of years she has starred in her own MTV’s series, strutted the runway of New York Fashion Week in Yeezy couture, and served as Ms. Golden Globe 2016.

On May 29th, Corrine will add another notch to her budding portfolio, joining her dad as the new DJ on Beat Shazam. The game show pits teams of two against the clock and each other as they attempt to identify the biggest hit songs of all time. In the end, the team with the most money banked will outlast the competition and go against Shazam, the popular song identification app, for the chance to win up to $1 million.

Blavity recently spoke with the actress about everything from her passion for philanthropy to her favorite Cardi B track, to her new co-hosting gig. Here's what she had to say:

I feel most aligned with my purpose when I’m doing advocacy work around gender equality and mental health. It is important to me that everything I chose to do has some form of a positive social impact.
