Born to a pianist in Serbia, LIMI had a beautiful passion for music as a child. She became noticed by the music industry at the early age of 15 and Within 2 years she released a music video for “We are who we are”
Currently living in the U.S, she is studying Music Business as well as for tthe past year working on her current musical project. So last weekend I spoke to this talented young woman about her music, her sound and what it’s like working in the US vs Europe!
What was it that first really influenced you to chase your musical dream?
I always knew that I wanted to be an artist. It has been my dream since I was 5 years old. Everyone simply thought of it as just one of those childish fantasies and that it would eventually go away, but it never did. I live for music.
Coming to the states what would you say was the biggest change for you?
The U.S. and Europe are totally different! But I adjusted quickly. Europe is so compact, while the U.S. is all about space. Also, in Europe you don’t need a car to get anywhere if you live in the city. But here, you can’t even buy a pack of gum without a car.
But one of the most exciting changes for me would be that now I am able to see VEVO’s website. I know it sounds funny, but I could not even see my own artist page before, because VEVO is not available in Serbia.
Have you found more musical inspiration since being in the states?
I have always been a huge fan of American culture. I have always looked up to artists who were big stars in the US and worldwide, and dreamed about being in that world. But now that I live here, I find so much inspiration everywhere I look. There are so many great sub-genres and artists that I have never heard about before I moved here, and that has inspired me in many ways.
To me, my sound is really hard to explain. I mix a lot of genres and styles of singing. I just go for how I feel. But if I had to describe it in one short sentence, I would say that it’s a mix of hip hop, trap, RnB and pop. I know that at this point I have only one song released, so it is hard to compare it to anything else, but when my new work is out, I think that people will see what I mean.
If you could collaborate with one Billboard artist right now who would it be?
Drake or Rae Sremmurd.
Is there anything you would really like to tell our reader’s?
I know that everyone has that one dream, yet they wait for “better times.” My advice would be to go out and follow that dream. There are no limits – besides the ones that we create for ourselves. I came alone to a country that I’ve never been to before, chasing a dream that almost no one believed in. I sacrificed a lot. I had some really bad times and experiences, times when I thought that everything was lost, but I never gave up. And I would do it all again. The point is – there won’t be a better time. The best time is now.
