|This is Kay. Get it?|
Now the bombshell is featured on the Canadian release Cherrytree Pop Alternative from Cherrytree Records, the folks behind Robyn, Far East Movement, La Roux, LMFAO, Colette Carr, Ellie Goulding, Frankmusik, Feist, and more. The new track, "Going Diamond," features one of rap's icons, Kurtis Blow, who in 1979 became the first rapper signed by a major label and is one of Kay's major idols and influences. The track is a breezy, upbeat 90s throwback, but its real purpose - and achievement - is in showing off Kay's numerous talents and most intriguing stylistic attributes: a mixture of rap and singing a la Ke$ha (but to different effect), major attitude and palpable sex appeal, and talent for clever and sometimes ridiculous wordplay, and a visual and musical style that mixes '90s girl-power chic with contemporary hip-hop are among them. The presence of a music (and music industry) icon like Blow is a big vote of confidence in the emerging star...not that anyone who has the chance to hear her music should need any further convincing.
Since the track is only available for sale in Canada (so far), here it is for the rest of the world. I think this gal is the real deal. See if you agree.
