Maxine Ashley oozes creative energy and her boldness bleeds through the song bird’s music. Today (July 6), the Bronx-born crooner joins VIBE.com for the premiere of her resilient music visuals for “Storm.”
The black-and-white treatment finds the queen looking artsy and dancing freely in the rain while using her hypnotizing voice, and beauty, to proclaim stoicism, and non-conforming lifestyle.
“After all the bullshit you can see I’m blooming/Nothing I can’t handle, I’m a rolling stone/Even through the pressure I just keep it moving,” Ashley sings.

During an 2016 interview with Vogue, the bubbling singer highlighted her musical influences.
“Growing up it was India Arie, Alicia Keys and a lot of salsa,” she said. :Then the wonderful world of the internet came along and I started doing my own research and fell in love with every style of music, beats and writing more than the actual artist. I think that any artist that is extremely talented and can get there voice be heard is influential.”
