ARTIST OF THE WEEK: MOXiiE

MoXiiE6FAME RECOMMENDS: MOXiiE ‘JILTED’

New York-based impressive Haitian alt-pop singer/songwriter Moxiie, reveals her new single ‘Jilted’, a modern pop gem about an unrequited love being realized beyond the grave…”When my life is over, when my time is through, I’ll haunt you forever for what I didn’t get to do…”

Moxiie reveals: “I started partying when I was 12, so I’ve seen it all. I kinda burned out on the scene early. It’s fun sometimes, but I have an addictive personality & its gotten me into trouble. I just prefer to put that energy into my music.” Watch the video to accompany her strong debut tune ‘Anyway’.

The beautiful rising-star was born to teenage parents, there was no money, no plan. She was raised on MTV, sounds of the Caribbean, Biggie & Jay-z…“I was sent to live with family in Haiti with my siblings because my mom was really young, my dad bailed out and the drug issue in our neighborhood was really bad. My grandma stepped in a lot, and supported us as a maid at a hotel in NYC. Of course I hated moving to Haiti, but now I am so grateful for that experience.”MoXiiE5On her journey full of survival and sacrifice, she says: “I know what it’s like to be without. I’ve wondered how I was gonna eat. There have been so many times when I was just flat broke. I waitressed, cleaned dance studios and bathrooms so I could afford dance classes. Music just drives me. Keeps me looking at that light. That possibility.”MoXiiE2She adds: “The first time I stepped into a recording booth I was 15, and I am still fighting. So whatever your dream, don’t be discouraged. Be dedicated. I honestly and truly believe with every fiber of my being that we are all miracles and all have the capacity to do great things. We just have to be flexible, but relentless. I fully believe in your highest potential.”MoXiiE3
