She would spend hours listening to her father work and developed an interest in rap, R&B, soca, and kompa.
Soca is a music genre that originated in Trinidad and Tobago in the ‘70s. Meanwhile, kompa (or compas) is a merengue type of dance music that was developed in 1955 by Nemours Jean Baptiste, which became popular in Haiti with his band, Conjunto International.
By the time Azia was a teenager, she was adept at hosting parties as well as a cable access show called Flex in Brooklyn.
She Started a Band in College
Azia studied at Wingate High School before enrolling at Virginia State University, where she started thinking seriously about working on her career in music.
During her senior year at Virginia State, Azia and her college friend formed a rap group called Thirsty 4 Pop. The band went on to release a mixtape and a couple of singles as well. They even launched a clothing line.
Unfortunately, Thirsty 4 Pop broke up in 2017, and Azia started working on her solo career. She began working as a model and occasionally appeared in music videos.
Azia was featured in the music videos, “Panda” (Desiigner), “Change Your Mind” (Trey Songz), and “Time of Her Life” (Tabi Bonney).
She also appeared as a featured model in Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 2 collection. Azia even helped design the Yeezy Season 3 shoe collection!
Azia’s Debut EP
On February 14, 2018, Azia released her debut EP, The Audacity. It is now available on all streaming platforms like iTunes, Tidal, and Spotify.
Although Azia’s songs have roots in Caribbean music, she’s come up with a unique sound all of her own by adding trap and hip-hop to her music. Her first single, “Pull Up on Ya,” gained a lot of popularity and achieved street credibility as well.
She is currently working on her next EP, which is scheduled to release in the fall of 2018.
Knocking at Stardom’s Door
Now, Azia is poised to achieve stardom thanks to her appearance on BET’s new show, Hustle in Brooklyn, where she’s one of the main cast members. She has great expectations for the new series, just as the makers have for her.
So far, Azia is doing well for herself! She has performed at The National in Richmond, Virginia, Sob’s in New York City, and The African American Music Festival in Baltimore, Maryland. She even opened for rappers like A Boogie and Juicy J, among others.
The Future Looks Very Bright
Azia is a talented, ambitious, and intelligent young woman who will work hard to realize her ambitions and make her dreams come true. And appearing in Hustle in Brooklyn is just the beginning for her.
Although the road to stardom is a long one, Azia is all set and geared up for the future!
