If you haven’t heard of Sophia Messa, you’re about to fall in love. At 20 years old, the singer-songwriter exudes both inner and outer beauty, with a hell of a voice attached. Growing up in lower Manhattan, New York, the first generation Brazilian-American has already amassed over 10 million streams at 20 years old.
Now, she returns with her hottest record yet, “Made,” premiered exclusively on Flaunt. The track features R&B’s favorite Pink Sweat$, as both collaborate for a duet for the books. With both adding their talents in harmonies and melodies, the record showcases the importance of embracing who you are: the good, bad, and uncomfortable.
Speaking on the record, Sophia states, “Messing up in life and being able to accept and grow from that experience, rather than bashing yourself. Everyone has qualities about themselves they don’t love, or qualities that society uses to treat you differently. Instead of feeling ashamed, we should all embrace how we were made. Every day, you can only try to be the best version of you.”
“Made” serves as the second single from her forthcoming debut EP titled Ice Cream & Cigarettes, arriving later this year. In any case, the rising pop star proves why she’s “made” for superstardom as she puts in the work necessary to become a household name. Listen above and get inspired!
