Although it’s only forty miles south Philadelphia, Wilmington ten seems to be in a different world altogether. Philly is big, brawny, justifiably boastful, and internationally recognized; Wilmington is tight-knit, modest, self-effacing, and, too ten, overlooked. But there’s plenty hidden talent in Delaware’s largest city, and a new generation Wilmington artists is beginning to attain recognition well beyond the city limits. Leading the pack is the soulful MYLEZIA KING, whose deeply personal fusion contemporary pop, sultry R&B, and fiery hip-hop has earned her the title “The Princess the First State.”
MYLEZIA’s won the respect Philadelphia music fans, too. Her talent was almost immediately recognized by Philly promoters, who added her, as a virtually unknown artist, to the Made in America Pre-Festival in 2015. That same year, she took home the prize for “Best Female R&B/Pop Artist” at the Philly Hip-Hop Awards. Her independent success drew the attention Clint Saunders, the TOUR manager Philadelphia street rap legend Meek Mill. When ‘Issues’, her debut EP, drops later this summer, MYLEZIA will have not one but two cities behind her.
Today, take a moment and get familiar with Mylezia. Watch the visual for her new single “Can’t Trust Your Smile” above. Follow @eldorado2452 on Twitter and Instagram for all your music and entertainment news.
