She continued to play her violin all through her school days.

Hilayna also ventured into playing the tenor saxophone and the piano young in her life. From there she knew that music is where she wanted to be. Hilayna was a managed artist that worked with Mims Management Company under Roman Mims. He was a driving force behind her success to this point. She is also pursuing a degree as a Music Production student at Full Sail University. With her degree,her goals are to tackle the industry from all angles and to become her own machine.

Hilayna loves to make music and put out hits. From her look to her sound she is very unique inside and out. 
Hilayna has had the opportunity to link up with some great people along her road thus far. She has worked with some great talent in Cleveland, Ohio from Collab on Da Track and Jay Chris who produced her first song "I'm Super Clean" to the talented Cristo Jeanette, who works closely with platinum producer Yong Yonny, who produced her hit single “Expressway to Love.” She has also worked with Platinum writer Darryl “Tiger Da Writer” Easterling who wrote Mario’s Hit Highway To Love.
