Diana Gordon, formerly known as Wynter Gordon, released the EP "Wasted Youth" earlier this year. Gordon has been around since the mid-2000s, penning songs for Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Lopez. Most notably, Gordon contributed writing to Beyoncé's masterpiece "Lemonade," which says all you need to know right off there.
