Mayans Star Emily Tosta On Why She Thinks Mayans M.C. Has Captured The Cultural Zeitgeist
…you have to always remember that what is meant for you will find you, at the exact time that you need it. Everything happens for a reason, and everyone has a divine plan. …you have to learn to not care about what others think of you. People are always going to have something to say, no matter if you’re successful or not, and if you let the opinion of others take over, especially when you’re in the public eye, it’s easy to spiral down a detrimental path of self-hatred.

Love Keyyz Discusses New Album, Upbringing, and Much More
Raysean Smith (@doeraymedia) Love Keyyz is a Cincinnati native, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, pianist, and model. Love Keyyz grew up in the inner city, constantly facing adversity, but her drive, motivation, and hard work towards a vision that only she could see made her stand out. In 2010, she began making YouTube videos that showcased her personality and raw singing talent. As Love Keyyz started gaining traction from the videos, she started writing her own music in 2012 and taught herself how to play piano. In 2018, the songstress moved to L.A. True to her name, Love Keyyz's discography consists of plenty of love songs. Shortly after her move to L.A., in 2019, Love Keyyz released her most notable project, "Naked." The EP, "Naked," was executively produced and written entirely by Love Keyyz, and garnered a lot of attention. "Naked" peaked at #59 on Apple Music’s R&B Top 200 - a feat she accomplished with no marketing and no record label. Being in Los Angeles encouraged her to be a better musician, so she enrolled in music school later that year; recently graduating with 4 certificates and 2 degrees in music. Studying with two of L.A.’s finest private instructors helped her cultivate her already tremendous sound, and with those skills, Love Keyyz created her newly released, critically acclaimed album, "I Could Be Dreaming."
