Up-and-Coming R&B Singer Emani 22 Dead at 22

Family, fans and her fellow musicians are mourning the death of up-and-coming R&B singer Emani 22, at the age of 22, earlier this week after record producer J Maine confirmed the singer's death in a statement to PEOPLE today.

"Emani 22 was a wonderful individual that literally brightened up any room she was in," he said. "I worked on music with her, and helped her put together her last project which was 'The Color Red.' The way we worked together was effortless, we just understood each other," he continued. "It hurts so bad to know that the last time I saw her was the last time I'd ever see her again."

No official cause has been released for the singer's, born Emani Johnson, death. According, however, to reporting by The Sun she may have been involved in a hit and run accident over the weekend.

Perhaps best known for her collaborations with Trippie Redd on “A Love Letter to You”, "Emani's Interlude" and "Fire Starter," Emani released “The Color Red EP” in 2020 to moderate streaming success.

Fellow artists and friend, rapper Bhad Bhabie posted a heartfelt tribute on Instagram to her departed friend writing, "I don’t even know what to say...This doesn’t even feel real. I used to spend almost everyday with you," she wrote. "You taught me so many things. You are my inspiration for many things (hair,nails, style, etc) my big sister. I’m gonna miss you so much."
