Mila J has received plenty of attention since her return to the music scene. Her new single "Smoke, Drink, Break Up" featuring Ty Dolla Sign is turning into a R&B favorite at the moment.
In an interview with Global Grind, the gorgeous singer talks about her girl group past and why she's not worried about being compared to her little sister Jhene Aiko.
The singer has been a member of many girl groups before going solo. Mila says her disappearance from the music scene was due to timing.
"I was in so many girl groups, which the experience was great, she said. "I'm not going to complain about that at all. But they disbanded for whatever reason so I was always used to being in groups so I didn't know who I was as an artist solo. In a group, you compromise. It's about what's best for the group. Even subject matter of what you're singing about. I definitely think I was able to take that time off and really figure out who I was as a solo artist and what I wanted to talk about, what I wanted to address, be myself, basically."
She also killed any rumors of her feeling envious of her sister Jhene Aiko. When asked if she's worried about comparisons to her sister, the singer doesn't believe there's anything to compare.
"Worried? Not at all. Not only is that my sister, that's my baby sister, so of course I'm always going to be protective of her," she said. "She's been at it for a minute too. We were raised in a musical family regardless, so we knew what we were going to do at the end of the day. It's kind of like all we know. Her hard work is paying off. I don't compare, but I think people are going to do that just because we look alike and we have the same last name. It's weird because some people don't even know we're related. I feel like our music is totally different. People are always going to create a sibling rivalry and there is none. Not at all."
