The Shade Room post also included references to her apparent overdose which led to her being hospitalized.

According to the New York radio station Hot 97, Enchanting was signed to 1017 Records in 2020 and appeared on three compilation albums before leaving the label in 2023. She released her final studio album,  Luv Scarred/No Luv, last year.

Enchanting began pursuing music at 18, but found that she "had to get comfortable" with her voice, which she did by spending a lot of time in the studio and "constantly recording."

Describing her style as "Trap-n-Blues," the artist used her music to express herself, telling 1017 Records on her bio page, “Other people can relate to the things I say. I might help somebody through any situation, they can listen to me and find peace.”
