Biografija




Paola Paulina Budimir rođena je 15.travnja 1989.godine u Vinkovcima (Vinkovci, Croatia).
Mnogi ju danas poznaju kao MC/DJ Coco Queen. No, njezina priča je počela davno prije...

Nedugo nakon rođenja odlazi u Njemačku gdje provodi djetinjstvo. Vrlo brzo se uklopila u novi način života. Coco je dobila dadilju koja ju je trebala čuvati. No, ona je učinila mnogo više od toga... Dadilja je imala korijene daleke afričke zemlje i prenijela je dio te kulture na malu Coco koja je sve to vjerno upijala te se spojila s afričkom kulturom, ljudima i običajima. Već s 5 godina je pjevala u gospel zboru u koji ju je uvela njezina dadilja.
Pjevajući gospel, otkriva čari duhovne glazbe koja je i dan danas prisutna u njezinom glazbenom izričaju.

Također, upisuje glazbenu školu koju nastavlja pohađati i u Hrvatskoj, u koju se u međuvremenu vratila.
Stečeno glazbeno obrazovanje danas joj omogućuje da svira nekoliko instrumenata. Njoj najdraži su ipak saksofon,afrički bubnjevi-djimbe i marokosi.

Sa 13 godina uspjeva impresionirati vinkovačku publiku pjevajući "Proud Mary". Od tada ju mnogi nazivaju i hrvatskom Tinom Turner!

Nadalje, dobiva mnoge ponude za suradnju i pjeva s raznim bendovima. Zbog svojih vokalnih sposobnosti i neobičog stila postaje zamijećena, što se i odražava na njezin daljnji napredak...
Otkrili su je lokalni DJ-i. Žele njezin dubok i neobičan glas stopiti s urbanom elektronskom glazbom, što im i uspijeva.
Zbog njezine karme, drugačijeg stila i velike pozitivne energije Paola postaje Live Act.
Dj-evima je uspjelo stopiti urbanu glazbu s njezinim vokalnim sposobnostima te tako nastaje Mc Coco Queen.



Sa 14 godina prvi puta odlazi u studio gdje upoznaje producenta Gorana Stojiljkovića s kojim snima nekoliko vlastitih pjesama i spotova.
2007.godine osniva školski bend u srednjoj medicinskoj školi.
Razočarana izborom aktivnosti za mlade u Vinkovcima, Coco u ožujku 2008.godine održava audiciju za plesačice. Odabrano je nekoliko plesačica koje ju prate na nastupima širom Hrvatske.

Odnedavno je i ponosna članica skupine „Femme Attack“ koja okuplja ženske hip-hop umjetnice u Hrvatskoj.

Coco od tada surađuje s mnogim poznatim DJ-evima i glazbenicima poput:
David Morales(SAD)
Luke Dzierzek(UK)
Dj Tonka(DE)
DJ Elvie Paris(FR)
DJ Brady (SAD),
