Having the ability to develop one’s self into a quadruple threat in the entertainment business creates a recipe for success. As each ingredient is added, it helps increase the probability of making a name for yourself in an over-saturated industry. Mastering each talent you intend to showcase to the world is imperative, as it portrays your diligence, work ethic, and capabilities. When striving for the spotlight, executives seek to find the “it” factor; a marketable and unique individual who has the potential to rise to the top. We have been able to witness superstars such as Beyonce and Jennifer Lopez effectively dabble into singing, acting, fashion, cosmetics, and more. It is not surprising that recording artist, Azia, is heading in the same direction as the superstars mentioned. She is reaching heights that many can only dream of.
Usually the love for music flourishes throughout the duration of a person’s childhood. As a teenager, Azia strategically created a show on cable access T.V. titled, “Flex in Brooklyn” while also hosting parties that quickly became popular. As her buzz grew louder, the opportunities started to knock at her door. As a natural beauty, it was only a matter of time before the masses approached her to be featured in videos, television, etc. Her video credits include, “Panda” by Desiigner, “Change Your Mind” by Trey Songz, and “Pick It Up” by Famous Dex, to name a few. Azia’s energy, beauty, and talent glowed on camera allowing for more prospects to pour in. Kanye West’s “Yeezy Season” and Nike’s “Caribbean Pack” were her next ventures. Due to the amount of exposure Azia was receiving, it was the perfect time to allow the world into her sanctuary of music. She was able to prove herself, not only as model, but also as an artist when she released her debut album, “The Audacity”.
As Azia continued to soar through the entertainment world, she became the star of BET’s “Hustle in Brooklyn”. Coming from Brooklyn herself, it was a perfect match and helped her become a well-known socialite in the business. In addition to being a Brooklyn native, Azia is Haitian and Trini all of which she has showcased in her music and videos. In her single, “Pull Up”, she stayed true to her roots grasping the attention of her fans as they watched and listened. Azia recently released her single, “Eat It Up”. With sexy lyrics and unique word play, this catchy song is certainly a fan favorite. Not only is the song superstar quality, but the music video brings the viewer to Azia’s neck of the woods. As she dances on an ice cream truck, chills in the park, and flaunts her beauty and sex appeal, Azia portrays her true self. “Thirty-one flavors, never know what you can get. I got thick ones, slim ones, tall ones, red hair, brown hair, blonde hair, all fun. Now, how many licks does it take to get a stick…” “Eat It Up” definitely has a fun and flirty vibe that causes the listeners to seek more content from Azia.
While navigating through her website, iamazia.com, I noticed Azia is not only a model, recording artist, and popular socialite, but also a designer. She owns “Brownie’s Couture”, a cosmetic line in which offers lip gloss of many shades, enhancing the beauty of her customers. To ensure her customers will be happy with the products, Azia offers them free samples.
It is apparent that Azia is multi-talented and is eager to continue her journey in the entertainment business. With her fan base increasing and the opportunities piling up, she isn’t going anywhere. Her fans anticipate the release of her upcoming project titled, “A Whole Mood” due to be available this fall. Azia is someone you want to keep an eye on as the sky is the limit for her. She is a force to be reckoned with which is obvious with all of her accomplishments.
