Shes determined. Shes driven. Shes a magnetic, multi-talented
triple-threat force of nature. Her time is now. Mila J was born to
shine. Her silky but demanding voice is hypnotic and penetrating. A
spicy, strong-willed yet femininely soulful artist that has something to
say, and we are instantly hypnotized. Combined with her charismatic
beauty, Mila J is a force to be reckoned with. This is no star This is
a Super Nova!
Born into a musical multi-cultural family and raised in Los Angeles,
CA, Mila J, born Jamila Chilombo, is one of four siblings. She got her
first taste of the music world when she appeared in Princes 1991 video
for the song, Diamonds and Pearls.
Already a member of a three-girl dance troop named, Innocence at the
time, she caught the attention of then popular manager, Chris Stokes,
who hired her and her group mates to travel as back-up dancers for the
renowned 90s boy group Immature shortly after. Later signed by Stokes,
the now singing trio landed a deal with the MCA label in 1995.
With her first love being music, and being from such a musically
inclined background, Mila decided to take a new journey in life and
begin a solo career after giving girl groups a try.
I wanted to be a solo artist. I felt like the group thing just
wasnt me, explains Mila J. So I took some time to reflect on
strengthening my chops as a solo vocalist. In the group, I wasnt the
lead vocalist so I wasnt as confident singing alone.
In 2006, Mila J was signed to Motown under the direction of music
mogul Sylvia Rhone. She worked on what was set to be her first solo
album, Split Personality. Mila was one of the top ten artists on Myspace
at the time, and had released a few singles that quickly gained her a
strong fan base. However, due to creative differences, the album was not
After that, I needed a break from the industry. I felt like if this
was something that I was going to pursue, I needed my heart to be 100%
in it, and I just felt at the time I wasnt at 100%.
In late 2012, after taking time away from the industry, Mila J
decided, with some encouragement from her loyal fans, to step back into
the music scene. She went into the studio and put together her own mix
tape of 5 songs. It was just something I felt like I wanted to do. Im
the kind of person that goes with my gut, and I wanted to give my fans
some music from me. Songs that I felt best represented me as an artist.
Before she knew it, the project exploded obtaining over 600,000
downloads, causing a stir within the industry insiders who then took
In 2013, Mila J was the talk of every label in town, before deciding
to re-sign to Motown IDJ. Now, in 2014, Mila J is set to release her
90s R&B inspired, hip hop tinged collection titled, M.I.L.A. which
stands for: Made In Los Angeles. I like the fact of being part of
the Motown Family where all the greats were discovered.
Her first official debut album, M.I.L.A. is slated for an August 2014
release. The first single, Smoke, Drink, Break-Up, a sultry,
slow-grooving hook-laced song about a dysfunctional relationship, was
serviced in early March, and entered on Billboards Urban Chart at #40
with a bullet and climbing fast. The accompanying video will drop before
the end of the month.
Other songs include the R&B heartfelt, haunting love song, Times
Like These and My One And Only, which finds her praising her man
over looping piano strokes. Her music is reminiscent of the type of
tunes that the true R&B audiences long for. And Mila delivers.
The album meshes well versus every song coming from different
producers, Mila says excitedly about the album. Its kind of like how I
feel albums in the 90s were: One solid vibe.
Thats a great way to sum up Mila J: One Solid Vibe.
