Thanks for the understanding most of you have had for the loss of my partner. The situation was unexpected and has not been easy, but I am better. I have been very busy since, with the aftermath and work, so I really haven't had the time or desire to post here. But I do check occasionally and will try to update requested links when I get a chance. No idea when or if I'll get to new posts, but you never know. He did support this blog, so maybe I'll get back to it. Thanks for your patience.

If you wish to download an album off of this blog and the link is dead, please request it either in the comments or the Chat Box and I will reupload it as soon as possible. :)

And don't forget to follow the Isle on Facebook and Twitter!

Mikaila - Mikaila (2001)

Mikaila was just another of the many female teen pop tarts, like previous postees Myra and Amanda, that followed in the wake of the pop bulldozer that was Britney Spears. But none had enough vocal personality, presence or sex appeal to eclipse Brit, except Christina Aguilera, and that was no doubt due to her powerful pipes. Mikaila has a nice enough voice and was backed with production by pop giants like StarGate and BAG & Arnthor, both of whom had great success in Britain producing pop songs for groups like S Club 7, Five, and Mis-teeq, and in the US on more hip-hoppish songs by the likes of J. Lo. Rihanna, Mya and Nelly. Her music is definitely pop with a hip hop edge, perhaps a bit more R&B than her peers, but not by much. She had one semi-hit with her first single, "So In Love With Two", which reached number 25 on the Billboard 100 (and has some awesome freestyle mixes). But no hits followed, and like most of her peers, she disappeared as quickly as she had appeared, and with little fanfare. She has recorded nothing of note since, though die-hard fans should track down the gospel album she recorded five years earlier, titled This Little Light and released using her full name Mikaila Enriquez. There are also a couple fan sites out there should you really need more Mikaila. ;)

  1. I was JUST thinking about Mikaila and wanted to do a post about her on my blog! I remember her video used to come on Nickelodeon a lot, and there was big push at the time to get kids to watch videos on Nick so they could transition to MTV. That video was highly sexual for a 14-year-old though...do you see the come-on looks during the split-screens?

  3. I like Mikaila. She's got such an amazing voice. It's too bad she didn't release another album after this. I hope she comes out with another album again soon.

  12. I discovered Mikaila's Facebook page under the name "Mikaila Enriquez." From what I could see, she is engaged and it looks like she has a daughter.
