By the age of 15, having firmly decided to become a singer, Marina begins to take the first steps in her musical career. At the studios of Kazan, in collaboration with the group «Pro-Z», her first songs are recorded: «Alien», «Start» and «Passer-by». The song «Get Started» becomes a local hit in Tatarstan, gets into the rotation of local radio stations and is often played in clubs. After a while, the song gets into the collection «Russian Ten», but under the authorship of the incredibly popular at that time group «t.A.T.u.»

In 2003, the singer independently released the single «Difficult Age» on the radio, which, however, did not have much success, as did the second single «Tenderness». In recording songs, the singer is assisted by the Kazan group «Pro-Z», whose members act as arrangers and producers of new songs.

In 2004, MakSim released the song «Centimeters of Breath» on the radio. Unexpectedly, the single is a great success, despite the fact that it was not supported by any promotional campaign, reaching the 34th position in the general radio chart of the CIS countries. However, the singer still remains unknown to the general public.

Having given her first performances in clubs in Kazan and other cities of Russia, MakSim understands that she needs changes, and goes to Moscow. In the capital, the girl collects material for her first solo album, writes new songs.

Having collected enough material, MakSim starts looking for a company that will agree to work with her, and turns to Gala Records. The company, after watching a demodisk of the singer with a recording of her performance at a concert in St. Petersburg, decides to work with her.

Work begins on the first solo album «Difficult Age». In Moscow, MakSim begins to collaborate with the full-time sound producer of Gala Records studio Anatoly Stelmachenko, who produces new songs of the singer at the Moscow studio. During this time, a new version of the song «Difficult Age» is being recorded, and work continues on the compositions «Become a Wind» and «Let Go». In 2005, the single «Difficult Age» was reissued under the title «Difficult Age (2005 version)».

On April 29, 2008, the first official autograph session of the singer took place in Moscow, timed to coincide with the release of the gift edition of the album «My Paradise». More than 700 people came to the meeting with MakSim. In an interview, the singer said that she really likes the fans of her talent. In the middle of 2008, rumors about MakSim's pregnancy appeared. The singer's press service does not comment on the information in any way, however, with the release of the new single «The Best Night», it becomes clear that MakSim is really pregnant. In the video for the song, the singer appears with an already noticeably rounded belly.

The new single, like the previous ones, rises to the first place of the radio chart, having stayed on it for 7 weeks. The song becomes the singer's most successful single. By the end of the year, the album «My Paradise» has sold more than 1.3 million copies.

On February 13, 2015, Maxim released a new video for the song «Became Freer». The clip became MakSim's second video work in 2015 after «Don't Exhale».
