Happy Women’s History Month Vocal Media readers! We are thrilled to highlight such an inspirational talent within the music industry. Youniq Love is a multi-talented jack of all trades. An Entrepreneur, Music Artist, and Fashion Designer. Being a woman of color she takes pride in her work. She took interest in music as a child because her parents were R&B lovers. Some of her musical influences include Patti LaBelle, Anita Baker, Mary J. Blige, Monica, Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah, Michael Jackson, Keith Sweat, R. Kelly, Tupac, and Biggie.
In addition to her passion for music, another creative side to Youniq is designing clothes. Royalti, is the name of her clothing line. If Youniq could be anything in the world, she would want to be the best of the best and even trace back to her roots.
