[COSIGN] Layna Lae: The Rising Urban Pop Star from Washington, DC | DJ BME

DJ BME and The Business Minded Entertainment Staff is proud to spotlight rising urban pop singer Layna Lae!

Layna Lae, born Marlena Trinity Georges on June 27 in Boston, MA, is an American urban pop artist-songwriter and aspiring actress hailing from Washington, DC. Growing up in South Florida, Lae developed a deep passion for music and cites Michael Jackson, Drake, 90’s R&B, and Contemporary Rock as her major influences. Her relocation to the District of Columbia after her grandmother's death further fueled her love for music and shaped her artistic journey.

Layna Lae made her debut in 2019 with her self-titled single "LAYNA LAE," which she performed at the 8th Annual Passion Over Poverty Teen Talent Showcase hosted by Domestic Violence Wears Many Tags. Since then, she has been creating music that reflects her personal life experiences, including ambiguous topics on lesbian relationships and her obsession with the American muscle Hemi engine.

In 2020, Layna Lae took to Instagram (@TheRealLaynaLae) to reveal her new feminized look and released her melodic and unapologetic single "As I Am," which garnered a lot of attention on social media. The self-proclaimed "Hemi Chick" experimented with her style and finally came into her own, which led to her emotionally-drenched heartfelt tribute titled "1949," released after the passing of her grandfather in 2022.

Despite her bold and daring persona, Layna Lae's music spreads love, peace, and positivity. She made a conscious decision to only release the radio edit version of her late-2022 Pop/Hip-Hop track "Copycat," which she performed at the 5th Annual DC Music Summit. The move reflects her desire to create music that inspires hope and unity.

Layna Lae's talent has not gone unnoticed, and she has been nominated for various awards. She has also performed at Bree's Birthday Bash hosted by the late WPGC 95.5 radio host DJ Tony Redz, Vero G's Birthday Bash hosted by Hot 97's DJ Drewski, Foreplay Fridays with Love & Hip-Hop's reality star/rapper Trina, and the Industry Night Live Tour hosted by The Live Squad's Steph Lova & P Stew.

In conclusion, Layna Lae is an artist who is making waves in the urban pop music scene. Her unique sound, powerful lyrics, and inspiring message have earned her a dedicated following. With her undeniable talent and drive, Layna Lae is poised to become a major force in the music industry.
