#DATSMYJAM: Mila J

mila_j_550

Though I try to focus on unsigned or independent artists here, this week I have to give recent Motown signee Mila J some much-deserved attention. The L.A. native, who also happens to be Jhené Aiko‘s sister, dropped her 5-track EP, Made In L.A. (M.I.L.A.), yesterday, and the stand-out cut for me is “Pain In My Heart” (feat. Problem.) With a hypnotizing beat, courtesy of K.E. on the Track (Rick Ross’ “The Devil is a Lie”,) you’re immediately drawn in. This isn’t your typical radio single, it doesn’t have that big chorus, but it’s really all about the mood.

Listen to “Pain In My Heart” below and check out her EP on iTunes.

UPDATE: Now there are visuals for the song as well:
