Andreena Mill is a singer who has collaborated with Drake. Her father, also a musician and recording artist, realized her musical potential at age 3 and enrolled her in piano lessons the next year. By the age of 11, Andreena began recording and writing her own material.
As Andreena began high school in 2001, her life would drastically change, as she became a member of popular Canadian female trio X-Quisite, alongside MTV Canada host, Nicole Holness and Melanie Fiona (Universal Motown).
In 2002, the group reached notoriety with the release of two successful singles “No Regrets”, which was followed by “Don’t Say”. The songs landed the group Canadian Urban Music Awards and Juno Award Nominations in 2003. The singles achieved domestic success while giving the girls a taste of fame.
In 2004, Andreena decided to pursue her own solo career, and signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing New York in late 2010.
Today, the high energy, intense styling of Andreena’s tracks and depth of writing provide the perfect ingredients for her musical magic, which she refers to as ‘Electric Rock’n Soul’.
Andreena lent her distinct and euphoric sound to rapper Drake for his critically acclaimed mixtape “Comeback Season”, which quickly became an international success. Andreena has also worked with artists such as The Bizness (Chris Brown, “No Bullshit”), Brian Michael Cox (Mary J. Blige, “Be Without You”), James Fauntleroy (Jordin Sparks, “No Air”), Kevin McCall (Keri Hilson, “One Night Stand”, Chris Brown “Deuces”) and Needlz (Bruno Mars, “Just The Way You Are”) to name a few.
As Andreena gears up for her Fall 2011 debut album release “All Eyes On Me”, she still finds time to write for artists – “I keep it simple, I love what I do and do what I love, it never feels like work”. For the immediate future, it seems all eyes will be on Andreena Mill.
Now, Andreena mills goes by the BlkLts, she has moved to La with her two kids, (Cailyn,Nasir) to further her music career.
