Today we’d like to introduce you to Barbie La Vie.
Hi Barbie La Vie, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I have been writing poetry since nine years old, singing since I was 11, Writing full-blown songs and rapping as well since I was 15 but I didn’t take it serious til I was about 29, that’s when I started to educate myself on the music industry more and I knew that being on stage was something I always wanted to do… I called it quits at my job to pursue my music full time in December of 2020… I had an epiphany after contracting Covid-19 in December when I realized my life was spared I said, God most certainly didn’t save me to work this slave ship of a job so I ventured out into the entrepreneurial journey to truly do and stick to what I love… today I face a few struggles but it doesn’t shake my faith in the higher power or my faith in me I’m not stopping till I get the level of success I truly deserve.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
First-year many blessings and opportunities came my way it was smooth sailing for the most part, going into the second year I am facing a few financial struggles but I’m going to figure it out because it’s what I do.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a singer/rapper/songwriter Performing and Recording Artist… I wear those titles proudly because I do well in all those areas of the Artistry… I talk about life experiences in my music but I also push positive messages that cater to self-love and body positivity, I also have feel-good music, party music, love/heartbreak, etc. I have merchandise and coloring books that contain lyrics to my biggest song “Body Positivity” currently trending on TikTok with over 13K people using my sound.
