Persephone’s Captivating JPop Single, “Be With Me”

Prepare to be enthralled by the musical prowess of Persephone, the dynamic alter ego of 19-year-old Olivia Millin, as she gears up to leave an indelible mark on the music scene with her upcoming JPop single, “Be With Me.” Olivia’s artistic journey began at the tender age of 7, and her exceptional talent led her to secure the runners-up position at the prestigious Jimmy Award in 2023, solidifying her as Florida’s foremost artist in the Broadway scene.

Embarking on a bold exploration of a new musical genre, Persephone not only signifies a musical transformation but also a celebration of culture. Fluent in Japanese after three years of dedicated study and an immersive trip to Japan, Olivia seamlessly blends her love for JPop with her innate knack for crafting infectious and original melodies. Persephone aims to embody the cuteness, originality, and energy synonymous with Japanese culture, aspiring to cultivate an American appreciation for JPop and its traditions.

With a personal connection to her mission, Persephone, who faced childhood bullying and wore a scoliosis brace, is determined to empower young individuals to embrace their uniqueness and find value in their differences. While the lyrics of “Be With Me” may not unveil a detailed narrative, the accompanying video intricately tells the story of Persephone, a JPop idol navigating the challenges of maintaining anonymity as a student. Battling bullying at school, she finds solace in the acceptance of a boy who sees her for her authentic self.

The narrative takes a twist when her primary tormentor, also the object of her affection, uncovers her true identity after a concert. In a poignant moment, Persephone chooses genuine love over fleeting admiration. Featuring audience interaction, dynamic dance routines with accompanying dancers, and captivating backdrops portraying her as an anime character, Persephone envisions bridging the cultural gap between American and JPop traditions while radiating cuteness, sweetness, and irresistible charm.

Inspired by the likes of Yoasobi, Iris, Atarashii Gakkou, and members of Wake-up Girls, Persephone’s unique journey is further shaped by her experiences of rejection, echoing the transformative power of music in her life. Olivia acknowledges the influence of Lady Gaga, recognizing a shared journey of breaking molds and embracing uniqueness.

To promote her music, Persephone strategically submitted “Be With Me” to various curator hubs, garnering significant accolades. Her approach reflects a commitment to authenticity and a genuine connection with her audience. As Persephone makes her debut on the JPop scene, Olivia Millin extends an invitation to join her on a musical journey that transcends entertainment, fostering a sense of belonging, empowerment, and cultural appreciation.
