THE FINAL RESULTS
Born in Malta into a wealthy family, she approached music from an early age. After school, she decided to enrol at the University of Performing Arts. As an adolescent she showed her skills in singing, dancing, and in the use of musical instruments: she specialized, in particular, with the piano, and also started to compose both the music and the text of her songs.
Muscat defines herself as a perfectionist and very self-critical, sensitive and capable of giving songs a very personal interpretation.
In 2016 she released her first single “Alone” on her YouTube channel and later in 2017 released her second single “Without You”.
In 2018 she participated in the seventeenth edition of the talent show Amici di Maria De Filippi, managing to enter the “evening phase” where she was eliminated in the final, finishing with fourth place in the singing category and a contract with Warner Music Italy.
Following her experience at Amici, she participated in “Isle of MTV 2018” with Jason Derulo, Hailee Steinfeld and Sigala and then took part again the following year with Martin Garrix, Bebe Rexha and Ava Max; later, at a musical event in Malta, she duetted with the Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja and Eros Ramazzotti.
On 6 July she released her first EP titled Moments, which also featured the two singles previously released only on YouTube. The EP was anticipated by the single “I Need Somebody”, released on 2 July.
On 7 December the same year, she released her first studio album entitled Moments Christmas Edition with covers of many Christmas classics. On 16 November 2018, she had a duet with rapper Shade in the song Figurati noi.
On 26 April 2019 she released her first single Avec moi, featuring singer Biondo.
On 14 November 2019 she participated in the remix of rapper Junior Cally’s hit song “Sigarette” (literally, Cigarettes).
On 10 December she released the single “Vicolo cieco” (literally, Cul-de-sac); after the release of the song, she stated in an interview that it would be the first official extract from her new album.
On 3 July 2020 she released her summer single Sangria, with Italian rapper Astol, was certified gold in Italy and reached 21 million streams on YouTube.
