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.
“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
Iliana Eve went into the studio in Louisville, Kentucky to cover Elvis Presley. Producer Jonathan Hay recruited Benny Reid to play the saxophone for the upcoming song. The Presley cover will be featured on two albums, ‘Jazz.’ by Mike Smith and Jonathan Hay that is being released in June of 2017 and on ’15’ the debut album from Iliana Eve that is being released in July.
“I Can’t Help Falling In Love” will also be released as a single through the Drink The Lemonade label. Here is the single artwork that is a collaboration between Aneesa Badshaw and DTL. The production of the Elvis Presley single is from Jonathan Hay, Mani Ajami and Benny Reid from Concord Music Group.
Read up on Iliana Eve at her official website www.ilianaeve.com . It’s actually a very funny read as she wrote all the content on the site herself. It’s all worth noting that this photo of Iliana Eve was liked by Perez Hilton on her Instagram! Sky’s the limit for this young singer / songwriter.
DJ Hannahbella might be better known to the kids at J.W. Mitchell High School as Hannah Lynn Nelson-Hay. While Hay is an ordinary high school sophomore during the day, she becomes DJ Hannahbella in her off time.
Hannah’s love affair with music began around the age of 7, she told Patch.
“I always wanted a new instrument and discovered different sounds with my ears,” she said. “Music was there when no one (else was). As cliché as that sounds, it helped me. It helped me when I was dealing with built up emotions. It helped me with everything.”
