Coely started rapping at the age of 17 when she was living in Antwerp. Someone heard her sing in a youth center and that’s where it all began. While still being in school Coely got signed by the music label Beatville which was the start of a new life.

Soon after she got signed her first song was released in September 2012 and got picked up right away by many radio stations throughout the Benelux Because Coely was crowned ‘Queen of the festival season’ by Studio Brussel in 2013 she got the chance to be the support act for many well-known artists such as Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and Nas.

In 2016 she got officially signed by Universal Music and since then it’s been a rollercoaster. We believe big things will happen for her soon, so we’re proud to have done this lovely session with them during Crossing Border Festival!
