I came across some music videos of Abbie being shared in social media. I specifically enjoyed hearing her rapping in the song entitled "Get Outta my Way". The pop-club dance track that features Kaliq Scott became a hit in the Belgium club music scene.

According to her label headed by Jake Shapiro, Abie's humble origin is the province of Davao in Mindanao. Shapiro feels Abie's Asian-Pinoy vibe and uniqueness gives her an edge in the global industry. "Abie is a musical force to be reckoned with," added Shapiro.
Critics have also dubbed Flinstone as the Asian version of Nicki Minaj. I personally think her rap style is distinct from Minaj. Her rap also goes well with the cute Asian "young charm" she exudes.

I believe Abie has an exciting path ahead. She has the capacity to stand out amid the changing landscape of the music industry.
Her label Big Jake was acquired by US-based public entertainment and film production company Seven Arts Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: SAPX). This is why her indie music label believes it has the backing and the ability to support her US release.
