THE BIG KIDS’ FILE: KAYLA BRIANNA TALKS NEW ALBUM AND MORE
Kayla Brianna has been a part of the limelight quite some time, being the daughter of former basketball star/TNT NBA analyst Kenny “The Jet” Smith. These days, Kayla is determined to make her own name in the world of entertainment.
The 18 year old singer is coming out with her debut album at the end of the year, which will be a mix of pop and R&B but for now Kayla is with boy band Mindless Behavior on their #1 Girl tour as the opening act.
The young star took time out of her schedule to talk to Newsobserver.com about her traveling with Mindless Behavior, her album and more. Check out the interview highlights below:
On seeing her music videos all over the Internet and to be working on her own album:
It’s crazy, just the fact that people know my songs and actually sing along night after night. Even after the concerts people are meeting me and saying how they really love the performances. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it!
On traveling with Mindless Behavior:
It’s been a lot of fun so far. We’re still getting to know each other, and I’m the only girl on the tour. They’re still four boys at the end of the day. They’re still silly and crazy and want to play pranks.
On the biggest challenge of being a young artist:
I think definitely just trying to prove yourself and make a mark in the industry is hard in itself for any artist, but when you’re a new artist and so young you worry that people might not take you as seriously. But if you work hard so consistently and put the work in, it’s going to show regardless. I’ve done that, and I’ve gotten to see the results in this past week in the tour. It’s been so great to finally see all my hard work paying off.
