Jamila Aiko Chilombo, better known as Mila J, is a singer, songwriter, rapper and dancer from Los Angeles. Before making it big as one of 2014’s breakout stars on the urban music circuit, Mila J was featured in Prince’s “Diamonds and Pearls” video and was a part of two short-lived girl groups, Gyrl and Dame Four. Between 2006 and 2009, she released several singles and even went through a reinvention process where she changed her stage name from “Mila J” to “Japollonia,” then back to “Mila J.” She is also the older sister to singer Jhené Aiko.
