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.”
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 ELLE, Billboard, Highsnobiety, VIBE 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.
