Michaela Jaé’s New Single
MJ Rodriguez is kicking off her singing career with a summer bop. The recording artist MJ also known as Michaela Jaé, her singing alias, released her debut single “Something to Say” during Pride Month. Its soulful and vivacious feel is refreshing. It’s a nice break from the consistent and generic music we all are so tired of hearing. According to Rodriguez,
“This song is for everyone worldwide, encouraging them to pause, observe, and acknowledge our shared similarities. It urges us to support our beliefs and embrace each other’s differences. Let’s unite for love! We are united as one!”
The Music Video
The music video, which was released this month, gave an early 2000s vibe with modern-day elements. The lead Pose actress showed us that she is a triple threat as she owned the music video with her fire dance moves. If you are a fan of the series Pose, then you’ll, without a doubt, be voguing to this song.
This artist has Something to Say alright, and this new summer hit is not the only thing.
Michaela Jaé is always looking to advocate for what is right. In an Interview with Shape, she states:
“I aim for my art, whether it’s acting or music, to challenge the biases and misconceptions held by those who dislike or refuse to understand. I hope it opens their eyes to the fact that being a transgender woman doesn’t make me a threat. Instead, I want to show people what it means to be human, how we navigate life, and the unique perspectives we bring.”
The actress has made history as the first trans person nominated for a major Emmy for her role as Blanca Evangelista in the final season of Pose. Her performance in Pose was clearly just the start. Rodriguez will also be featured in the upcoming Apple TV+ comedy series Loot, alongside Maya Rudolph.
She is bringing back R&B, all while adding her own flavor.
