With June being the official month of Black Music Month, an aspiring music artist that goes by the name of Bahja Rodriguez from Atlanta, Georgia expresses her emotions through love songs. Bahja’s career began at the age of 12 as “Miss Beauty” in the group, the “OMG Girlz” along with the daughter of T.I. & Tiny. The group was successful with singles in 2013 and a few tours with other young artists. In March of 2015 the group disbanded. After the breakup of the group, Bahja decided to pursue a solo career of her own.
In April of 2015, Bahja released her first single entitled “Jealous Type” which gained over one million sound cloud streams. She went on to release two more songs entitled “Lipstick” and ” Next One” solidifying her position as a solo artist.
Bahja continued to pursue her solo career by releasing two EP tapes “It Gets Better” on November 20, 2015 and “Luv”on November 25, 2016 which both charted high on Billboard and ITunes R&B charts. Bahja is currently working on her debut album which is set to be released in this year. She has also currently signed to her first record deal with “Street Sxholar Records”.
