The songs offers clean lyrics with a popular dub edge leaving new fans singing the hook of her song by the second verse.
She really empowers her female audience with her track titled “Trust Me” with lyrics like “Trust Me Don’t Watch Me” and the meaning behind having trust in your partner enough to know they are together with you as one and are not looking to cheat on you!

Realm Music Group LLC based out of Hollywood,FL, admits to using social media (youtube.com) and (facebook.com) to discover Aria. In a company meeting, we had been discussing how some of today’s most incredible talent had been found on social media sites ie., youtube and facebook by the likes of which Usher had discovered Justin Bieber and Jackie Ivanko was also discovered using online media, admits “DeFronzo”. We decided let’s take to the social media sites and see what was out there. We really wanted to have a reggae artist on our label and had been seeking talent for nearly two years when we finally came across Aria from Jamaica. We followed Aria and persued for about 6 months before initiating a record deal. “The album wasn’t even finished but we knew we wanted her on our label” says DeFronzo. When you come across someone as passionate and talented as Aria you cant sit back and wait so we were on it….we didn’t want to be left saying we wished we found and signed that artist Aria from YouTube like we said about Justin Bieber and Jackie Ivanko. “We wanted her and we got her!” say executives at Realm Music Group.
