SOPHIE Dead at 34
SOPHIE, whose real name is Sophie Xeon, was a transgender pop star/record producer who previously worked with some of the biggest artists in the music industry today like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Charli XCX, Kim Petras, and many more.
The Scottish-born avant-garde pop artist passed away in 2021 after a “sudden accident.” At the time, her record label issued a statement revealing how she passed away, saying she climbed up to watch the full moon “and accidentally slipped and fell.”
The pop star, who died at the age of 34, was a pioneer in the hyper pop genre as she was one of the first people to experiment with the sound.
According to Rolling Stone, the musician was born in Glasgow, Scotland. She began her career as a DJ before producing songs for artists like Madonna with her track “B****, I’m Madonna.”
After years of producing songs for other people, she finally released her only album “Oil of Every Pearl’s Un-Insides” and was nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the Grammy Awards in 2019.
More recently, Kim Petras and Sam Smith won the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category at this year’s Grammys. The former delivered an emotional speech where she mentioned SOPHIE.
“I just want to thank all the incredible transgender legends before me who’ve kicked these doors open for me so I could be here tonight – SOPHIE, especially,” she said. (via Junkee)
