Originally unveiled as an Amazon Originals Exclusive in 2020, she has unwrapped it on every streaming platform now. Kiana brings her own sense of sultry soul and simmering spirit to the holiday classic, adding another dimension to the standard and giving it new life.

Kiana’s voice continues to resound throughout the culture. She teamed up with multiplatinum R&B phenomenon Queen Naija for “I’m Her,” clocking millions of streams. Additionally, she lent her smooth vocals to Kitty Ca$h’s latest banger “Just Fine.”

Not to mention, her most recent single “Ur Best Friend” [feat. Kehlani] has amassed over 26 million streams. HYPEBAE described it as “steamy, and UPROXX observed, “Plenty of R&B acts came out to impress last year with their respective projects despite the pandemic making it anything but a normal year. Two artists who did this are Kiana Ledé and Kehlani.” Meanwhile, Revolt raved, “the two fused their R&B talents together effortlessly in the new track about giving into temptation.”

It all paves the way for new music coming soon. She’s kept busy this year with collaborations with G-EAZY, THEY., Niko WaltersD-Nice, and Femme It Forward, flexing her dynamic diversity.

Kiana Ledé is way more than an R&B singer. Her poetic lyrics (set to an alluring blend of early classic R&B, soul, pop, hip-hop, and singer/songwriter genre) and relatability have led to notable success, including the platinum-certified “EX” from 2018’s breakout Selfless EP, and hits like “Mad At Me” and “Chocolate” feat. Ari Lennox and achieved over 1 billion streams globally.

KIKI, her self-described “coming of age” debut album, bowed in the Top 5 of various charts — the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart, Apple Music R&B/Soul Albums Chart and iTunes R&B/Soul Albums Chart — as well as the Top 10 of the Apple Music Overall Albums Chart. The album has impressively gained over 50 million streams in addition to industry praise from ELLEBillboardHighsnobietyVIBE and many more.

Ledé grew up in South Phoenix, Arizona as a self-described “Black, Mexican, and Native American girl who participated in pageants.” At the core of her music is honesty, which will continue to make her a standout artist.

Joseph Black – Mad At Me

JOSEPH BLACK DELIVERS RAW EMOTION ON NEW SINGLE MAD AT ME, WATCH THE VISUAL FOR MAD AT ME HERE, LISTEN TO MAD AT ME HERE

The rising Duluth, Minnesota, singer, rapper, and producer Joseph Black releases mad at me, the latest single from his forthcoming mixtape. Listen here. Known for his introspective breakthrough single (i hope you) miss me, Joseph showcases his signature pop-rap sound as he effortlessly delivers raw emotion and vulnerability.

The new track builds on Black’s ability to translate his personal pain into revelations anyone can relate to, which is quickly becoming one of the young star’s standout attributes. For those worried that a song as brilliant as (i hope you) miss me would be hard to follow, Joseph Black’s mad at me proves that the 21-year-old star is here to stay.

About Joseph Black

Combining a singular voice with a DIY mentality, Joseph Black is a self-made rapper, singer, and producer on a mission to make it. Supported by rich harmonies and piercing hooks, his sharp lyrics stay raw and don’t shy from emotion as the man vividly chronicles his dramas, heartbreaks, and triumphs. It’s a blend that’s already resonating with millions worldwide. For Black, who grew up on welfare and surrounded by drugs in Duluth, Minnesota, a chaotic upbringing and the struggle to persevere provide the fuel for his music. As for the kindling, an eclectic soundtrack informed his youth, a mixture of Eminem, Lil Wayne, and country that pointed him toward the twin powers of storytelling and melody. By 15, he was recording his own music, releasing one-offs and mixtapes even while getting picked on for being small. At 18, he was done fighting his way through school. Black dropped out and turned to the streets, where his new routine, an untenable juxtaposition of music daydreams and nocturnal mischief, would soon give shape to his art: soul filtered through the grit of urban life.

Kiana Ledé – KIKI

By Cassandra Yany

Platinum-selling artist Kiana Ledé released seven brand new songs Friday to expand her critically acclaimed album KIKI. These tracks help the Phoenix-born and LA-based singer to show more seduction, spirit and soul than she has before.

The deluxe version includes the single “Only Fan” featuring Jacquees, on which lustful verses, airy guitar and a steady beat create a throwback R&B energy. The two artists sing back and forth as Jacquees’ falsetto reaches a hypnotic peak. The album now contains a bonus track, “Youth” featuring GRAMMY Award-winning blues rock artist Gary Clark Jr., who brings smooth vocals and a head-bobbing riff to the song. 

KIKI was first released on April 3 and earned a spot in the Top 5 of the Billboard Top R&B Albums Chart, Top 5 of the Apple Music R&B/ Soul Albums Chart, Top 5 of the iTunes R&B/ Soul Albums Chart and Top 10 of the Apple Music Overall Albums Chart. It has garnered over 50 million streams and received praise from notable outlets such as ELLE, Billboard, Highsnobiety, Vibe and more.

Recently, Kiana Ledé teamed up with Usher for “This Day” from the Netflix original film Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.

About Kiana Ledé

Just who is Kiana Ledé? On the one hand, you know her as a fierce and fiery force in R&B responsible for bangers such as the platinum-certified “EX,” “Mad At Me” and “Chocolate” feat. Ari Lennox and has received over 1 billion streams globally and praise from Complex, Vibe, Billboard, ROLLACOASTER Magazine and more. But, who is she? “KIKI,” she answers. On her aptly titled full-length debut, she reveals every side of herself: the vulnerability, the vitality, the anger, the lust, the loyalty, the joy, the darkness, and the truth as evinced on song.

Long before all of this, the songstress “from South Phoenix with Black, Mexican, Native American, and White ancestry” grew up between divorced parents. She played classical instruments and competed in pageants—but popped wheelies on dirt bikes and got under the hood to fix a car or two. Eventually, an adventurous spirit carried her from Arizona to Los Angeles where she began a journey that comes full circle in 2020.
