Tune In!

Listen to Bahja Rodriguez’s EP, LUV​

Editor’s Pick: “Another Luv Song” which is a rich story of a woman putting things right and saying what she means! 4/5 for me on this one! She’s right on point sonically, full of soul and strangely, at such a young age, knows how to handle pain and express it. “Wake Up Call” is my runner up…she’s got what it takes to be a serious contender in the game!

Here’s the official line on Bahja

Sweet melodies, soft backgrounds and powerful leads would be the only way to describe the unique but soulful sound of R&B singer Bahja Rodriguez. Bahja is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Atlanta Georgia. From an early age Bahja has always enjoyed singing and had a passion for music. Bahja’s professional career began at the tender age of 12 years old as “Miss Beauty” with the popular and colorful girl group the “OMG Girlz.” The group is most known for their songs “Gucci This(Gucci That),” “Where The Boys At,” “Baddie” and “Boy It’s Over.”

The group performed on several major tours and had much success however, in March 2015 the group disbanded. Not letting the group’s abrupt ending stop her from pursuing her dreams, Bahja sought out the perfect creative team to help develop and bring her vision as a solo artist to life. With such an overwhelming and amazing response to her music, Bahja Rodriguez definitely seems to be Atlanta’s “Next Big Thing” and just what the music industry is missing.
