Originally from Atlanta, Mika Means has risen to snatch all of our wigs off. As an R&B and hip-hop performer, she can balance work and play, and has been juggling quite the resume as a songwriter, entrepreneur, creative and music maker. Holding the true definition of branding oneself as an artist, she uses her position in the industry to empower women to be independent and to push the boundaries of creativity outside of the structured set of roles.
This isn’t Mika Means’ first rodeo, as she has rounded up some serious supporters including Kelly Rowland, Elle Varner, Monica, BabyFace, and close friends Missy Elliott and Lil Wayne. Even though she just started to push her solo career she has been a part of the business for close to a decade now writing songs for notable gold and platinum artists such as Bando Jonez, Chris Brown, and Zomboy. She has rightfully earned her place, performing with The Girls Club across the country as well as at Miami’s SunFest. She has been known for her featured artist spots on countless blogs as they try to keep up with her fast flow and delivery. She released a tune entitled “Traffic” up on free streaming Soundcloud and it received a great response with almost no promotion. With her talent speaking for herself, she has big plans for the upcoming year including releasing her debut album, Sheezus Christ. In her partnership with the well-respected Devil Hills Entertainment, she is celebrating the release of her latest installment, “Single Life.” The existence and presence of this song is just a taste of what is to come as she embarks on the journey to find and complete herself.
A fun summer jam, “Single Life” certainly brings Mika to life as she gets engaged to herself and throws her own party. Complete with her crew, the contrast of the wedding day and her reckless dance moves brings a humorous, yet tasteful, quality to the video. With an appearance by Kid Quizz he takes us to school with his fearless dance moves. Shot in LA, Mika’s careless confidence is shown in full force as the shot transitions between her feminine dress and androgynous tracksuit. It is no doubt that Mika is beautiful but that isn’t the highlight of her strengths. Not only did she bring life into the video, she directed it herself. Surrounded by empowered men and women, they seek strength to allow themselves to be free of all ties. They find themselves through the connectivity of music as this inclusive party continues to stay strong.
