“I want [the book] really focus [on] how important it is, as women, to work together and collaborate with each other. Because that’s the only way to push back the barriers – that’s if we help each other and truly grow in a fellowship. Because that’s what men do, ”Mia explained, saying,“ that’s why [men] are where they are – that’s why they support each other. “
“We have to do the same… we have to stop looking at another woman as our competition,” Mia continued. “More and more women are becoming more and more inviting – by inviting this fellowship – but it really has to come from an authentic place. And that’s really what Ky-Lee and I want to focus on, especially for the younger generation. We really need to stay united and support each other. It is so important.
Mia Martina is known for songs like “Stereo Love”, “Latin Moon”, “Burning” and “Beast”. She also released three albums.
Mia offers her support to other women in the form of a “Full of Advice” book, which she describes as a “how-to guide” to “having the right mindset to be successful if you’re in the business of creation”. With a lack of women surrounding Mia early in her music career, the dance music sensation had to rely on herself to cultivate that mindset.
“It was always, ‘Oh, she only got this because her manager is so-and-so, or this deal came about because of so-and-so and such-and-such,” Mia said. “And it’s like I’m never really looking to honor myself – that I’m actually the talent… I still managed to come here on my own and celebrate my accomplishments.”
Mia Martina teased that she has “lots of books to come” and called writing a “new passion” on her part while speaking with HollywoodLife.
After this experience, Mia didn’t want to just pursue an independent path – she “needed” to do so. “You can’t create when you have all of these feelings or boundaries or no one to turn to or to talk to, because you’re in a predominantly male circle,” she told us. “And that’s what made me change. And that’s what made me become independent. And it was very, very difficult. But I have learned so much. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Because now I really know what my goal is. And I know I wake up everyday knowing that ‘Yeah, maybe I have to struggle a little more. And I have a lot more on my plate. But at least I do it with my integrity and my direction and I feel good. As if I fell asleep happy.
While Mia launched her music career amid these setbacks, she still watches the song that put her “on the map” – “Stereo Love” – with nothing but sweet nostalgia. “It’s such a beautiful feeling to know that this song touched so many people and that so many people have fond memories. And I had the chance to travel the world and live my dream. So I’m forever grateful for that, ”Mia said, after celebrating the song’s 10th anniversary in October 2020. She added,“ When I look back on 2010 it’s like, ‘Wow, like, that’ was my kind of star alignment moment, basically, for this trip. And I’m just filled with gratitude. I couldn’t ask for anything more. I am so blessed. ”
Fast forward more than 10 years later, and Mia has undergone an “evolution” from her debut single with a music video that has now racked up over 467 million views. “I was also very young when [“Stereo Love”] came out of. So like now my writing – it certainly has a lot more substance and experience. And overall I’m just more experienced, ”Mia told us.
You will be able to hear that evolved sound in her new EP which will be released in May 2021. It’s a new kind of dance music: not quite full of EDM praise, but rather, it’s its own genre that she calls champagne. “Because when you hear it, you’ll want to grab a glass of champagne, and you’ll want to be on a beat and you’ll want to dance,” she explained.

The next EP will reflect a more “sophisticated” sound from the days of “Stereo Love” and “Latin Moon” in the early 2010s. Although Mia had to go an independent path to get there, she wants her new book served as a mentor to which she, a young girl from her small Canadian town, Saint-Ignace, did not have access.
“Imagine if we had had a mentor, how much easier it would have been… but we didn’t have it. And luckily we’re here today, but if I can help a girl who’s super talented, and who just has these big dreams and aspirations, why wouldn’t I? “Said Mia Hollywoodlife. “Like, there is abundance everywhere … and that’s kind of what [Ky-Lee and I] want to do this … to help this awareness. Because I believe that once you reach a level of success, and you’re out there, it’s your job to give back. And that’s where I am in my life. ”
