KORR-A, a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter and dancer, threw the first spin of her single for “Cali Love” and the music video at a dance party at Stir Lounge in Sherman Oaks, CA..
The “fun-in-the-sun party starting anthem” was produced by Jared Overeem of Overdrive Productions.
KORR-A’s “Cali Love” premiere party included a first time ever 30-minute DJ set from KORR-A. The singer debuted her skills on turn tables by showcasing her love for infusing bouncy EDM beats with Hot 100 pop hits. She started with her own remixed versions of Rihanna’s “Needed Me” and mash-ups from Drake and Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind.”
The event also featured appearances from Dutch EDM producer Kizzo and producers Richard N. Gladstein, Nick Huffman.
The music video, directed by the Ukraine’s Jensen Noen, “visuals immediately makes you want to let the pile of paperwork on your desk stack, say F traffic and hit the beach,” according to the press release. “KORR-A challenges you to kick back and celebrate why California is amazing by taking you on a costal cruise through Malibu as she and her crew dance, surf and party until the sun goes down.”
KORR-A was born near the “disaster stricken ruins of Chernobyl. She was brought to the United States to inquire about health complications she suffered as a result of the plant explosion. It was as a child in the U.S. where she began to fall in love with 90’s hip-hop and pop hits and the dance moves of icons like Michael and Janet Jackson.”
“Renowned for her quick wit, Hollywood glam and curious girl next door vibe, Kristina’s passion for perfection and deep need for self-expression have driven her success as a recording artist, dancer, model, actress and producer,” reads her official website.
KORR-A hit the music scene in 2013 with smash “Fiyacraka.” Produced by Dave Aude, who scored over 83 #1 Billboard dance hits, it hit #18 on the Billboard Dance Club Charts, #12 on UK’s Music Week Commercial Pop Charts, and #7 on the DJ Times National Dance/Crossover Charts.
The hypnotic video was directed by Yevgeniy Timokhin and featured dancers from Dance Centre Myway.
“My immediate musical goal is to have a #1 single and hit the Billboard charts,” Korra explains. “I’m excited to be on the road towards that level of success. I never want to be thought of as one who spreads herself too thin, but rather a multi-faceted artist who integrates my passions and always strives to be the best at everything I do. It’s intoxicating being so busy doing all the things I’ve ever dreamed of doing.”
The singer also put out a whimsical spin on the Tinder/Grinder apps and the modern dating world with “Swipe Right,” produced by Tearce “Kizzo.” Her song “Touch Me Like You Mean It” hit #20 in the Billboard Dance Chart.
KORR-A’s “Everybody Gets Down” was built around the hook of C&C Music Factory’s 1990 #1 hit “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now).”
