Radmila Lolly (born May 10, 1986) is a Russian–American singer, songwriter, and fashion designer.[1] She is a Billboard charting artist, with her song "MAGIC" charting on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 Indicator chart[2], as well as her songs "U R Moving Me" and "Tonight" charting on Billboard Dance Club Songs list at positions 21 and 40 respectively.[3] Her two studio albums were premiered at New York's Carnegie Hall and six of her songs were featured on the soundtrack for the film Honor Up, directed by Damon Dash.[4] As a fashion designer she has created designs for celebrities such as Nicole Ari Parker, Natti Natasha, Carla Morrison, Gayle King, Bebe Rexha and Mýa. She has appeared on the cover of the virtual edition of the magazines Elle India, Glamour Bulgaria and L'Officiel Baltic.[1][5][6]


Musical career[edit]

Wonderland, her second album, premiered at Carnegie Hall in an event entitled "A Night of Opera and Couture", in which Lolly performed live the entire record accompanied by a live orchestra and a fashion show with designs of her authorship.[4] In 2018 she contributed with six songs for the soundtrack of the film Honor Up, directed by Damon Dash and produced by Kanye West.[4]

On November 19, 2019, her song "U R Moving Me", a collaboration with singer Dani Hagan, was ranked number 21 on Billboard Dance Club Songs chart. On March 27, 2020 she again appeared on the same list with the song "Tonight", which climbed to the fortieth position.[3] The same year she released two new singles: "Rule 1"[7] and "Snake Body", the latter produced by Carlos A. Molina.[8]

In 2021, Radmila released her single "MAGIC". The song was written during lockdown as an ode to her new home, Miami, the "Magic City". In 2022, she collaborated with fellow Miami artist DJ Mike Tee to release MAGIC (Miami Beach House Remix).[9] "MAGIC" also became a Billboard hit, charting on the Billboard Top 40 Indicator Chart[2].

As of 2021, the artist is in the process of writing a novel, which she will accompany with a new studio album composed of 33 musical movements.[1][10]

Fashion career[edit]

Lolly started making her own outfits for her musical performances. She made the decision to launch her own couture label, Eltara Casata.[11] She presented her first haute couture collection at Gotham Hall in New York City, and on the occasion of the release of her album Wonderland, Lolly presented a new collection of her own. Her designs have appeared in several runway shows, including Barney's Madison Avenue Trunk Show and the Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony. Celebrities like Carla Morrison,[12] Natti Natasha, Nicole Ari Parker, Gayle King, Bebe Rexha and Mýa have worn her designs.[1][10]

Viral "jersey gowns" and sports involvement[edit]

In 2022, Lolly first went viral for her self-designed gowns made out of basketball jerseys when she wore one to the NBA playoffs at the Miami Heat vs. Philadelphia 76ers[13]. Since then, Lolly has created numerous other jersey gowns and designs, and has become well known for them. She is also known for her courtside fashion at the Miami Heat games, with the NBA naming her "the most fashionable courtside seat holder in the NBA"[14].

She has incorporated her love of local sports with her art forms of fashion and music as well. In 2022, Lolly sang the national anthem at a Miami Heat game, accompanied by a string octet and choir. Both Lolly and all of the musicians were dressed in her couture designs[15]. In 2023, Lolly performed at the seasoner opener game of the Miami Marlins vs. the New York Mets, performing her song "MAGIC", once again accompanied by orchestra and choir. The musicians were dressed in Lolly's couture designs, while she herself wore one of her jersey gowns, this time made out of Miami Marlins jerseys[16].

At the end of 2023, Lolly dropped her first ever collection with the Miami Heat, inspired by her viral jersey gowns, and completely designed by her. To launch the collection, she performed at a Miami Heat game during halftime, with Lolly, the Miami Heat dancers, and her musicians all wearing pieces from the collection[17]. Later that season, she followed up her collection with a second collaboration with the Heat for the playoffs. Most recently, she took her designs to a drop collaborating with the University of Miami Hurricanes[18].

Other activities[edit]

In November 5, 2021, Lolly served as a speaker at the TEDxDupreePark talk.[19]

Radmila is involved with numerous arts institutions and philanthropic organizations in her home of Miami, including joining the board of the Florida Grand Opera[20], as well as boards of Shalala Music Reach Foundation, and of the LEAP for Ladies Foundation.[21]
