Apple hosted its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on Monday, showcasing new projects and software coming to its devices – warning, iMessage is about to be so lit! But aside from all the tricks and gadgets, stood out a Black woman who slays.
Meet Bozoma Saint John, the head of global marketing for Apple Music (formerly Beats Music). Word on the Twitter streets is the Ghanaian native has a serious habit of slaying, and we've got to know more.

Before joining Apple Music, Bozoma led Pepsi-Cola North America’s music and entertainment marketing group securing million-dollar endorsement deals from artists like Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Eminem, according to her XO Necole feature. She was also behind getting Beyoncé to do the half-time performance at the 2013 Super Bowl. She was essentially in formation long before 2016.
Remember that Apple Music ad with Kerry Washington, Taraji P. Henson and Mary J Blige? You guessed it; that was her too. And if all that’s not impressing you much, she’s also been named Billboard’s Top Women in Music and was awarded as an ADCOLOR Rockstar honoree. Bozoma Saint John did not come to play Monday!
Taking the stage to deliver the keynote, Bozoma presented the new features for Apple Music, playing Ghanaian music, and everyone loved her...
