Geffen Records recording artist Prima J, comprising sisters Jessica and Janelle Martinez, made a visit to BMI’s Los Angeles office to be welcomed as new additions to the BMI songwriting family.
The sisters have a reality program on Mun2 and are currently wrapping up their debut album with songwriter, producer and mentor Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, Vanessa Carlton, Mýa, The Black Eyed Peas, The Pussycat Dolls). The girls’ debut single, “Rock Star,” was the lead track from last year’s Bratz motion picture soundtrack (Geffen Records).
Hailing from Rosemead, CA, Prima J were discovered while performing choreography for r&b recording artist Nikki Flores, and were introduced to Stefanie Ridel, who took the duo under her wings. As Mexican-Americans, Prima J hope to be role models to both American and Latin girls, as they consider themselves the face of the new Hispanic in America, part of an emerging generation that speaks English and lives Latin.
