Mahogany Lox On TikTok, Her Success With “Take Your Man,” Her Motown Roots & More

Singer and DJ Mahogany Lox is making a lot of people taken notice within both the musical and TikTok worlds. Sister to Sky Blu, niece to Red Foo of LMFAO and granddaughter of founder of Motown Records Berry Gordy, Lox’s latest music has more hip-hop and pop influence to it, and her recent single “Take Your Man” notably scored over 1.7 million individual TikTok video views. The song also now has over 17 million streams on Spotify, and Lox’s new song “SIKE” is likely to also go viral.

The first creator to have her song playlisted in TikTok’s trending music section, Mahogany Lox recently spoke on a panel at TikTok’s #MakeBlackHistory Summit, as covered by Adweek. In addition, Lox was featured in Mastercard’s recent “Tap & Go” national campaign, as premiered at the 2020 Grammy Awards and run for months after that. She was also in a worldwide NYX campaign beyond appearing as Briefcase Model #13 on the hit television series Deal Or No Deal.
