Teenage media darling Iliana Eve releases her first project titled “15: The Sins of A Father Playlist” through Smith and Hay. Eve is only 15 years old and has been singing for just a little over a year. She’s already been seen in TMZ, Billboard, USA Today, BET, E News!, Entrepreneur Magazine, New York Daily News, HipHopDX, Houston Chronicle, The Huffington Post, HotNewHipHop, 2DopeBoyz and countless more outlets all across the world.
She’s collaborated with Cyhi The Prynce, 22 Savage aka Funny Mike, Kxng Crooked of Eminem’s Slaughterhouse, Kevin Pollari, Twista, The Game, Inspectah Deck of Wu Tang Clan and Nitty Scott.
Frequent Lil Yachty collaborator Kevin Pollari, who has just signed a deal with Rick Rubin, has teamed up with teenage singer Iliana Eve for the new single “All Alone.” The track also features Mike Smith, a former judge of the BET television show One Shot with Sway Calloway, DJ Khaled, Remy Ma, RZA and Tech N9ne. With production from Jonathan Hay and King Graint, it’s a nice introduction to Pollari as a solo artist.
“I loved working with Kevin and see why Rick Rubin got involved with his career,” Hay told HipHopDX.
Huffington Post is hands down one the most popular media outlets in the world. This major publication spotlights Jonathan Hay and his beautiful teenage daughters Iliana Eve and DJ Hannahbella who are quickly emerging as stars in their own right.
“Many of life’s big decisions are prompted by a burning desire to fight a problem or right a wrong. This is how most big businesses were born and it’s just the same for Iliana Eve, 14, who started her own record label, Drink The Lemonade, to raise awareness about child abuse.
Owning a record label, or any business for that matter is a serious undertaking. And for Iliana, she has it even tougher given that she’s been a victim of child abuse herself. Now she hopes she’s able to help other victims of child abuse who may not have the support of influential people like her father, Jonathan Hay, a famed celebrity publicist and Kemar McGregor — a top reggae producer.” – From Entrepreneur Magazine
