A Little Bit About Me

Whether it be the R&B her mom played while cleaning, or the house and hip-hop music her dad played in the car, she loved it all. Most of her inspiration came from R&B stars such as Lauryn Hill,  Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, and many more. J. Solaye was always actively singing and entertaining family and friends for as long as her parents can remember. Her passion for music only increased in high school, where she began performing at almost ever school event. The desire to expand her musical reach motivated her to start writing music of her own.
