More with Mia Amor & New Artist Kendra Jae

Kendra Jae may be a singer, songwriter, dancer, and choreographer, but the Sacramento-born and Los Angeles-based multi-hyphenate succinctly describes herself in one word, “Wifey.” It connotes everything she represents—independence, hustle, charm, charisma, and confidence.

Surrounded by music as a kid, her motivational speaker father introduced her to R&B and hip-hop classics. Growing up, she initially fell in love with dance competing locally and choreographing at a young age. Mom and dad shuttled her back and forth between Sacramento and Los Angeles for auditions and casting calls. After high school, she launched her career as a professional dancer which eventually led to being the youngest dancer on Beyoncé’s historic Formation World Tour. She also joined Drake on tour and hit the stage alongside everyone from Gwen Stefani to Dua Lipa, and choreographing music videos for Chloe x Halle and Saweetie. In between, she developed a signature style of her own, writing and recording solo music.
“When I realized I was blessed with the gift to connect my love for dance and movement with my love for music I was like ‘This is the ultimate high.’ I’m a sweet girl, with a sweet tone but I’m still guaranteed to talk my shit. “ In 2020, she released her first single “PER$ONA” and went on to collaborate with Bizness Boi [Elton John, Rihanna] on “916” and GRAMMY® Award winner Camper [H.E.R., Mariah Carey] on “YKT.” During 2021, she linked up with Saweetie on “Seesaw” from her Pretty Summer Playlist: Season 1 EP, racking up over one million streams.
Now, she kicks off her next phase with the single “Big.” Over a throwback beat and sizzling production, she flexes her dynamic range with blunt bars before dropping a hard-hitting hook.
“Of course I want the big wins on this big journey and I’ve been relentless on not letting up until I get them. ‘Big’ is going to make people realize I’m a real artist, and I cannot and will not be boxed in . My talents have no limits.” Wifey isn’t just a way of life for Kendra Jae; it’s a movement.
