In an interview with Spy, Parris revealed what it was really like to work alongside the biggest names in music.
"I was never a person who spent their life obsessed with celebrities. I'm just excited to be able to collaborate," she told the site.
"The cameras make celebrities look like gods but when you start working with them you realise they're human just like you."
"Rihanna is my favourite to work with because she makes me feel so comfortable I can just be myself and give my best," she shared.
"Also she knows what she wants, which makes it so much easier to do my job of bringing her vision to life."
Parris also explained what went on behind the scenes to create Justin Bieber's iconic 'Sorry' music video.
"Justin gave me three weeks to produce 12 different videos, one for each track on the album. Somehow we just managed to finish on time but it was so rushed," she said.
"We'd filmed Sorry that day and I stayed up all night to edit it. I didn't even have time to decide if I liked it, I just sent it in."
"None of us expected that kind of response. It will go down in history for sure. I think the things that made it successful were
1) Justin Bieber isn't in the video which makes it different. You can tell the ReQuest crew are not from LA. Everyone was thinking, 'Who are these girls?'
2) It's visually really clean, just a white room with girls in colourful outfits; and
3) The choreography's really strong. Justin was really easy to work with. You get some divas but he's so chill and open to trying anything and being vulnerable which is really special."
