Born in the Little Haiti neighborhood of Florida, SamoMillion (pronounced Mil-ee-yon) had to grow up quick and become the man of the house after his father was deported back to his native country of Haiti when Samo was very young. He said he had the same struggles as most kids have when growing up in a low-income neighborhood, and music became a way for him to express the feelings that were often bottled up inside. He turned to inspiration from other artists with Haitian roots, such as Bob Marley, Wyclef Jean and Soulja Slim. As he studied and developed his sound more, he created a fusion of Soca, Reggae, Pop, Hip Hop and Afrobeats.
Eventually, his hard work and natural talent landed him a partnership with independent label MotorMouthMusicGroup. Together, they’re releasing the single “Lotto,” with a music video for the song set to be released Oct. 1.
“When people hear it, they’ll assume it’s for somebody who won cash or a lot of money or a prize,” Samo said. “But it’s about a female who’s hard to come by. Finding a good female in this generation is hard. It’s like gambling. So I’m putting that into a song. When you find a good woman, this song will talk about how you’re supposed to treat her to keep her, because if you lose her, it could be a million years before you find another one.”
Samo also said he’s working on a bigger project that he hopes to release in early 2021, as well as a follow-up single to “Lotto’ called “Soul to Keep,” which will showcase a different side of his artistry.
