Breakout star and former cast member of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta (LHHATL), Margeaux Simms, recently debuted the video for her new single, “Girl On the Left” featuring her equally stunning partner, androgynous model Merike Palmiste.
The Canadian-Jamaican, Margeaux Simms, began writing songs and performing at age 14 in her hometown of Toronto. In 2005, her group Test Drive, had a striking set of production by Timbaland, Danja Handz and The Runners along with DJ Khaled.
Margeaux ultimately self-released her solo EP Animal House in 2011. Joining other various electronic groups, and bands playing guitar, she eventually changed her moniker from Margo to Margeaux. She returned with a new sound and songs featuring production from various producers. The result of the production has been an ethereal crafting of electronic Hip Hop that evokes emotional swag with heavy drum beats and sultry vocals that embody who Margeaux is as an artist.
Her hit single “Start a War,” which was released in 2015 on her HOFM label and debuted on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, has created great anticipation among music geeks from Toronto to Brooklyn to Japan and is the prelude for her forthcoming EP, Blue Cocaine, which will be released later this year.
Merika also has an impressive resume. Signed to Major Models, Merika has landed major gigs modeling for successful designers and has been featured on the runway at Brooklyn Museum for two consecutive years.
