Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we want to know somethin' somethin' 'bout Kreay.
Following a year full of shows, travel, press, photo shoots and personal projects, Kreayshawn (one of 2012's most talked about sensations) will release her debut album Somethin 'Bout Kreay on Aug. 14, 2012 via Columbia Records. Drawing inspiration from a myriad of genres, including everything from sissy bounce to juke to '80s rap, to pop and beyond, Kreayshawn's album is a reflection of her vast musical taste.
This past year has been a flurry of excitement and new experiences for the 22 year-old Oakland, CA, native, who abruptly gained the attention of millions when the video for her undeniably catchy anti-materialism anthem, "Gucci Gucci," became an instant viral hit. "Gucci Gucci" garnered over 200,000 views within its first 48 hours last May and reached over 2 million views in just two weeks, with over 34 million views to date. Kreayshawn worked on her debut album in between performances around the world, including shows in Japan, the UK, France, Canada and US major festivals like Voodoo, Popped!, Bamboozle and The Vice Noisey tour (which she co-headlined with Neon Indian). Says Kreayshawn, "I feel so accomplished, having finished my album; I got to travel the world, perform for crowds of tens of thousands, be on covers of magazines all over the world, and finish a whole album in less than a year."
The video for her new single, "Breakfast," directed and produced by Kreayshawn, was shot in Atlanta and features 2 Chainz. "My favorite part about the video shoot was the breakfast party in the kitchen. It was so colorful and just how I envisioned it when I wrote the treatment." With the album release date now on the horizon, Kreayshawn's excited to share her eclectic style with the public. Says Kreayshawn, "I just want everyone to be ready for a mystical musical journey through genre and sound. There's just somethin 'bout Kreay..."
