Just a few weeks ago, pop artist [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dev[/lastfm] threw us all for a loop when she announced out of the blue via Twitter that she was expecting a little bundle of joy.

It came as a big surprise considering you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone else who’s had more a whirlwind year, from her collaboration with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Far East Movement[/lastfm] on “Like A G6,” all the way to the upcoming release of her very first album.

This morning, Carson got [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dev[/lastfm] on the AMP phone line to find out how getting engaged and pregnant has impacted her career and more importantly, her music.

After the breakout year [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dev[/lastfm]’s experienced, you might think that getting pregnant so early in her career could prove problematic, but she couldn’t be more thrilled for the challenge:

Everybody thinks that I would’ve been sort of upset, like you said because everything’s popping up right now with me and my career. But I was actually really excited and I think that being pregnant and being a soon-to-be mother has put me in such a good mindset. I’m in such a good place right now.

Even her fiance, Jimmy, is getting into the baby state of mind!

He’s absolutely amazing. He figures out all the doctor’s appointments. They know him by name there before they knew me, actually!

It was only just a year ago when [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dev[/lastfm] first appeared on our radar.

She got her first big break when she sang the hook to “Like A G6,” but it’s her latest track, “In The Dark,” that has turned out to be a smash hit.

The single is currently sitting at #6 on Billboard’s Dance/Club chart and slowly conquering the Hot 100 at the 18th spot.

It was one of the first songs we made in Costa Rica when we were out there recording for the album. And just to see 9 months later it doing so well is really cool.
