For those not familiar with KaMillion, she’s currently making waves in hip-hop and is the self-proclaimed queen of “twerk” music. With a recent wave of female artists, KaMillion has made her mark on the industry already. The Jacksonville, Florida artist has stated that her influences include Lil Kim and Drake, but she fuses this inspiration with her own southern style. Not one to be put into a box, she has also written for other talented artists like Rihanna, Diddy, and Jordin Sparks. KaMillion even received a writing credit on one of H.E.R.’s songs and the song was featured on a grammy-winning album, and has just released her own new single “VOO.”
KaMillion is currently streaming her music on all major platforms and has been generating a buzz with some of her original works. She teamed up with fellow Jacksonville producer, M Geezy, to create the track, “Florida Lit” that became a certified summer anthem. Other notable tracks include “Twerk 4 Me,” which generated over 3 million hits, and garnered her the #1 spot on Pandora’s new big sound chart. Her song also inspired the #TwerkForMeChallenge that took social media by storm.
KaMillion has not stopped at music, along with writing for other artists, she’s also taken over VH1’s third season of “Love and Hip-Hop Miami.” She represents Jacksonville in everything she does and she has pushed for the city to become a hub of talent, similar to the way Atlanta has attracted musicians from all over the world. She wants her city to be heard as she says, “I want [musicians] to be able to come to Jacksonville like they go to Atlanta because we’re just as talented. I think a lot of the experiences from our lifestyle and the backgrounds that we come from — low income and impoverished communities — make us tell our story differently in songs.” It looks like Jacksonville is on pace to be the next hub of the south.
