Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. K'La
Tue, 18 Sep 2012 17:47:56
In the column inches of Take Aim, we love to invite up 'n' comers and established acts into the ring, and today, we chose K'la, an IDJ signee who has worked with Nas on the song "Blame." She's hotter than a volcano so we had to go mano y mano with her! She's a gem! We also love to "be there" way back when, before the rest of the world catches on. So remember, you read it here first. Find out all about K'La.
If you weren't doing music, you'd be:
If I wasn't doing music, I'd either be a stay at home mom or pursuing a criminal law degree.
Do you have any non-music hobbies or skills?
I draw pretty well. I've been told I'm also a talented actress.
Tell us about working with a rap legend like Nas on "Blame."
The song itself was completed remotely. I didn't meet Nas in person until we shot the visual for "Blame," but it was quite a surreal experience. He's actually much more down to earth and genuine than I imagined, so much so that it made me respect his artistry even more. Some people are just genuinely good people, and I could definitely tell that Nas is one of those people.
Any key songwriting stories about "Blame?"
"Blame" is pretty clear cut and straight to the point. We become who we are through the things we experience. Lyrically, "Blame" is that explanation of how past relationships and previous hurt, can be channeled to help evolve a woman into a heart-breaker. You learn to adapt. You learn to survive that type of pain. Blame is my personal version of that story.
What can we expect from you in 2013?
You can expect to hear a great deal more from me in 2013. I'm growing into my own as an artist and I hope it shows in the music I produce. Be expecting a very new and fresh sound from me. I pour my heart, soul, and personal experiences into my music. I personally miss that aspect of both r&b and hip-hop. I hope to be the revival of that.
