"Just living, taking in your experiences. That's how you grow, especially as an artist."
Almost exactly a year ago, before her Miami debut, Banks told Crossfade all about her journey from "writing in my room" to touring with the Weeknd.
And now the 26-year-old brooding pop songstress is returning to Miami with another 365 days of experiences behind her, a new album entitled Goddess, and a gift for all her fans.
