WATCH: Give it Up - @kayleeameri

New to the WTM radar is Kaylee Ameri.

I came across the Newark native during her IG Live interview with RNBaeCollective last week. Host CristaCat and Kaylee talked about her latest video and single, Give It Up. The song has an obvious sample in the classic, The Boy is Mine by 90's R&B Legends, Brandy & Monica. Their recent verzuz battle worked in the singer's favor as she had no idea they were even battling around the same time she dropped her single. Musically, Kaylee flexes many different pockets and flows over an 808 percussion and the flipped harp sample. Her voice is soothing even as she modulates to a falsetto. The girl is talented and we'll be paying closer attention moving forward. For now, check out her new video for Give It Up below.
