Australian DJ and singer Havana Brown is constantly touring with major acts such as Britney Spears, Rihanna, Chris Brown and Enrique Iglesias. Her single “We Run the Night,” with a little help from Cuban rapper Pitbull, was not only a huge hit in her part of the world but reached number one on the Hot Dance Club Songs chart as well as number 26 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Here first EP When the Lights Go Out was released last year to strong sales. She is bringing those tunes headlining the 23rd anniversary of Club Skirt Dinah Shore Weekend in Palm Springs, California in April.
We caught up to her on the road to learn more about the Aussie talented beauty.
Jerry Nunn: Hi, Havana. Where in the world are you calling in from?
Havana Brown: I’m in LA.
JN: Did you make the big move out there permanently?
HB: Yes, I actually got a place here, which is kind of nice. For a little while I was homeless and living out of suitcases. It was nice to hang the clothes up.
JN: Do you like traveling around so much?
HB: It can get really tiring but as far as traveling I like visiting all the cities that I thought I would never visit. Especially in the States everyone seems so different. It is like visiting a totally different country sometimes.
JN: What has been your favorite place to visit?
HB: That is hard to say. I love both LA and New York. I love the sun so that is why I chose to move here. There is dry heat, good weather, and the entertainment business is here.
JN: In Chicago I met you at the Fantabuloso show after you performed.
HB: Yes, I love Chicago as well. It is a cleaner, smaller nicer version of New York. [Laughs] The people are a bit nicer, too!
JN: You are very photogenic. Have you ever thought about modeling?
HB: Probably not. That is not really my kind of thing. For photo shoots I like getting dressed up and the makeup but I get extremely bored very quickly.
JN: You are from Australia but where did the stage name Havana Brown originate?
HB: That is actually a breed of cats. When I was looking for a DJ name. I was looking at breeds of cats because there was something about cats being bold, independent, and strong. They know what they want and they know how to get it. I like that personality for my career. It is a rare breed so it is very hard to find. At that time when I started DJing the female DJ was a rare breed. I instantly loved it. The name appealed to me being strong and feminine at the same time.
JN: Your song “We Run the Night” was first a hit in Australia then it took a while to come to America?
HB: Yes, it was a year and half later. It has been great though to come over the States and go double platinum. Having the great response is a dream come true.
JN: How did you hook up with Pitbull for the song?
HB: Basically I had released it in Australia then they decided to release it in America as well. RedOne had heard of me since I was out touring but didn’t know I could actually sing. He put me together with Pitbull who redid the song. It was one of those things that you can’t plan or expect to happen. It all fell together and it worked out.
JN: Now you are headlining at the Dinah Skirts event. This will be huge.
HB: I am pumped for it. One of my good friends Luciana performed there last year and she said it was nuts. She loved it. When I get the phone call to perform at the Dinah event then I already knew it is one of the best parties ever. I am looking forward to it.
JN: The girls will go crazy over you.
HB: [laugh] Yes, I love that!
JN: Do you know what you are wearing yet?
HB: I have no clue. I should think about that shouldn’t I?
JN: It is a white party so maybe a white bikini so you can work on your tan.
HB: Exactly. I love performing for girls, too. I love seeing them in the crowd. They can be harder to please but when they are happy you feel like you have achieved something. When they feel good then I feel good.
JN: When are coming to play for the gay boys in Chicago?
HB: I feel like I am always there. I will have to look on my schedule. It might be on my website www.djhavanabrown.com. All of my tour dates are there.
JN: You are always on the road.
HB: I am so I get excited about my time off then after a couple of days I am ready to get back into it! I have been in the studio but I do miss touring and performing.
JN: How do you deal with the late night hours of DJing?
HB: I’m an early riser too so it is a really bad combo. What helps me out if I can is to take a little nap. It doesn’t always happen when I am touring but I like an hour and it just revitalizes me. When I don’t get the nap I can be tired when I enter the club but after hearing the music I feel the energy all of my tiredness going away. My adrenaline gets going and then when I leave I have to wind down because I get so pumped up onstage.
JN: I love your song on Pitbull’s album “Last Night.”
HB: Oh cool. Personally I love that track as well. I tell people that I am not being biased but I think it’s the best track on the album Global Warming.
JN: I hope he releases it as a single.
HB: Me, too. We just shot a video for it actually in Vegas. I got the final cut just recently of a live video with a behind the scenes type thing. It just shows the party element. It’s full of energy.
JN: Have you met your idol Janet Jackson yet?
HB: No but it could happen very soon though. I need some positive energy with that, although maybe I don’t want to meet her. What if she doesn’t like me?
JN: I have a feeling she will like you.
HB: I have heard she will be really sweet and I’ve heard great things about her.
JN: Okay, it’s time for Nunn’s Name Game. I am going to mention people you have worked with and give me a one-word answer describing them. First one is Rihanna.
JN: Britney Spears.
JN: Chris Brown.
JN: Lady Gaga.
JN: Enrique Iglesias.
JN: Well on that note it was fun playing the game and talking to you today!
Hook up with hottie Havana at the White Party on Friday April 5 at Hotel Zoso.

Warming for up for concerts and festival on the way this summer, 103.5 KISS FM presented Fantabuloso at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont. Think a pop Lollapalooza complete with 12 music acts.
Doors opened at 5:00 followed by first act duo Karmin, who I recently interviewed in my column for Fusion Radio. They have a hit with “Brokenhearted” and new album entitled Hello. Channeling Nicki Minaj, the lead singer Amy kept her raps and singing light and peppy.
Havana Brown currently is played constantly on the radio with her track “We Run the Night” featuring Pitbull. She DJed the rest of her set, jumping around and keeping the audience out of their seats.
Carly Rae Jepsen brought youthful energy to her short set but with a backing track that continued when she lowered the microphone gave a new meaning to singing live. Call her…maybe.
Many fans in the crowd were there to see American Idol’s Adam Lambert. Wrapped in caution tape to highlight his new album Trespassing, his fan base seemed to be older television watchers. One song “Kickin’ In” worked particularly well but many of his lyrics were watered down and forgettable.
Pop singer Dev seemed ver relaxed with her set including “Bass Down Low” that was sampled on the song “Like a G6.” Her hit “In the Dark” had people dancing in the aisles. If only Enrique Iglesias had popped out to sing their duet “Naked” together.
He appeared directly after her with songs of his Euphoria album, which is hard to believe released two years ago. “Tonight (I’m Lovin’ You)” was an anthem as Enrique jumped over my head while I was photographing him. Luckily I didn’t get kicked in the head with his boot!
The Wanted has exploded in a short period of time in the United States with their mega hit “Glad You Came.” Girls were screaming their hearts out for the boys and as usual they know how to work a crowd.
Closing out the show it was Gym Class Heroes who have a current hit with singer Neon Hitch with “Ass Back Home.” Teaming up with artists like Neon and Adam Levine has made them radio friendly and ones to watch. Look for my interview with Neon on the way soon!
The World has never met a DJ and singer like Havana Brown! Little miss Havana Brown, (who, for clarification, originates from Australia, not Cuba), is having a hell of a year!
With her latest smash hit “We Run the Night” featuring Cuban born rapper Pitbull, there is no question that the demand for Havana’s music is rising faster then we can say “Run ‘em, like, run ‘em, run ‘em-Whoop!”
As a DJ she spins old school, electric, R&B, and pop! Her credits come from mastering the skill of mixing these musical styles together so smoothly by adjusting the speeds of a song, then blending them so that the transition is seamless and the effort looks minimal when she does so.The craft is difficult to master, but Havana gets it done just as well as any of her male counterparts in this male dominated arena. She has the look of a Victoria Secret model, a voice that can collaborate with any singer, and the skill to make the beats with such varying artists, this makes the Aussie a triple threat in the music industry!
She is one of the most sought after DJ’s in the land having worked with artists such as Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Enrique Iglesias, Rihanna, the Pussycat Dolls, and many more! Havana has toured all around the world and under the wings of Island Records has released 6 volumes of her Crave compilation albums since 2008! Miss Brown acquired a 12 month residency at the Las Vegas, Paris nightclub, Chateau after her North American tour gave her much deserved success in the states, and holds three hugely successful radio spots in Australia and France! Two of the latest singles Havana has released are collaborations with Enrique Iglesias called “Heartbeat”, and of course “We Run the Night” featuring Pitbull! Look out for Havana Browns debut album to come out this year and for my review of the album here at Fusion so you can get the skinny on what’s good, what’s bad, and what’s hot!
