Stacy Barthe is a Grammy-nominated singer songwriter who is gearing up for her Motown debut album later this year.

Her 3rd EP, P.S. I Love You, has been receiving rave reviews which are in due to a large part to her single “Hell Yeah” which features Maybach Music Boss Rick Ross.

Referring to herself as being in a “cocoon state,” Stacy has lost over 157 lbs. over the past year, and while she admits her heavier weight could have impacted her career, her journey has a deeper purpose.

‘I’m not losing weight for aesthetic purposes, I’m losing weight because I want to live. I just want to feel good. I was borderline suicidal… I just wasn’t in a good place,” said Barthe.
