Life and career
Emii (born Emily Rose Morrison) was recently featured in the June 2013 issue of Billboard Magazine as the Spotlight Artist, and her November 2012 feature in Inked Magazine highlighted her extensive martial arts background and passion for science fiction and comic books. She signed with theatrical/commercial agent Media Artists Group after starring in two sci-fi feature films at the end of 2012.
After performing in Beirut for the NRJ Music Tour, she met DJ Osane and the two collaborated on the hit song "Emergency" which was called a "club smash" by Rolling Stone Magazine. Her song "Magic" is featured in the YouTube television show Dance On. YouTube star Hannah Hart of My Drunk Kitchen fame learns to dance to the song from So You Think You Can Dance winner Lauren Froderman. "Magic", which was released on April 6, 2010, reached #32 on The Pop Indicator Chart and held the #66 position on the R&R/Mediabase Top 40 Pop Chart. The music video for "Magic" was the most viewed music-related video on YouTube on the day of its release and the sixth most viewed video overall.
Emii has since released a five song EP Magic on iTunes . On October 26, 2010, Emii released her follow-up single, "Mr. Romeo" featuring rapper Snoop Dogg. She accompanied the release with a collection of remixes, including mixes by critically acclaimed DJs Seamus Haji and Mike Rizzo. A music video for "Mr. Romeo" featuring Snoop Dogg was released January 2011 and hit over 1,000,000 views on YouTube.
The A-Side to her latest EP, "Time To Move On" was awarded 3 stars in a Rolling Stone Magazine review. "Time To Move On" reached #4 on the UK Pop Club Music Charts in June 2013. Her science fiction-themed music video for "Freakier Freak" premiered on the gaming and Sci-Fi website IGN April 2, 2013.
As of August 2014, Emii's latest single "Fiesta" has reached #67 on the Mediabase Top 40 Pop charts and #32 on the BDS Pop Indicator Charts. Her next single, "Leaving You Behind," is set for an October 2014 release.
