Exclusive Interview: Rising Artist Kadia Zhané

Tell us a little more about when you first got into music?

I have always been surrounded by music from a young age. Besides singing around the house when I was younger, I was also in a concert choir. From there, my mother had moved me to Atlanta and had put me in this singing, acting, and dancing agency named A.G.I. They would train us starting off by having us do jumping jacks and then running around this huge room 6 times. From there we would have to belt out a song to build up our stamina. I’ve been training since young. 

If you could describe your sound/style in one word, what would it be and why?

That’s really a tough one. I feel like my music can be described with multiple words. If I had to choose one word though, I would have to say universal. My music has been played around the world. It’s very diverse and I can sing and rap in different genres as well in my native tongues of English and Spanish.

What would you say to any aspiring recording artists who look up to your work?

Keep going. No matter how hard it gets, KEEP GOING. It might feel like hell but why would you want to stop there?! I would also say to stay focused on you and your goals. People will try to come and alter your plans and try to convince you that their way is right but ultimately you decide what’s best for you!

Do you have anything new or upcoming we can expect to see from you?

I have new music coming as well as my ep. I also have merch on the way. I am currently working on recording music videos for the singles currently available on all streaming platforms. 

What is the inspiration behind your latest song?

All my music stems from previous experiences in my life. The Weekend was actually written outside of the studio. I remember I was home and I had decided to write about my previous situation with a guy. I remember writing, “he wanna have for the weekend”. And the rest was history!

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

Honestly, the biggest thing I wished someone had told me earlier would be to be patient. It doesn’t happen overnight. It doesn’t look like it but the artists out now have been doing it for years on end. 

I would always think to myself that maybe this music life wasn’t for me. Why isn’t this going as planned? But I realized the things I want most I have to work hard for.  

Another would be that you have to stay consistent. You have to put out work often and frequently. My thing with this is I am a perfectionist and always want to make sure it’s the best quality of things before I share it with the world! The third would have to be quality over quantity. 

This I would say goes with the other reason but it’s true. You can’t just put out anything. You have to have good sound, mixed and mastered and the levels on point. Investment is key! No one will take you seriously if you don’t take your craft seriously and invest. The fourth would be to make sure you have a good team behind you.

I had to deal with people who I thought were really just using my name to get into rooms off of the hard work I have done in the past. They weren’t adding value to my life. They were more of a liability versus being an asset. The fifth and final advice would be make sure you enjoy what you do. Don’t let anyone take the joy out of your talent! 

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

I would mainly say pick up other hobbies besides your talent so that way you can feel more alive. I would also advise taking little vacations in between just so you can enjoy and be grateful for the life you are living!

BenniHunna- It’s like a wakeup call for the people that aren’t paying me any attention to let them know that they should be & if they don’t I’m gonna make them regret it 

What are your “5 things I wish someone told me when I first started” and why. Please share a story or example for each.

BenniHunna- Save your money cause it will come in handy. Rap is expensive & you gotta have money to play this game. I’ve expedited missing out on feature opportunities & traveling opportunities that prolly would’ve had me further along if I was financially smarter back then.

BenniHunna- Don’t let the lack of support tear down your confidence. I mean everybody is not going to support you & that’s okay. Just cause they are not supporting me now. Doesn’t mean they won’t in the future. You gotta put in that work & stay focused. Keep ppl around you that want you to win so you can keep that confidence.

BenniHunna- Maintaining your confidence. Once you lose confidence you lose faith & you start doubting your talent. When you lose faith your audience will too. They can only believe in you as much as you believe in yourself. 

BenniHunna- Be more spontaneous. Everything doesn’t have to be planned out strategically. Sometimes you just gotta get in there & go do it. Don’t think about it. Don’t prejudge it. Just go make it happen. & see what comes from it. I’m not saying do that every time. It wouldn’t hurt to do it sometimes because that spontaneous move might just give you what you been looking for that you couldn’t plan for.

BenniHunna- Believe in your talent at all times. You need to believe it til the point when people that just met you can see that you have a light that can shine way brighter than how it’s shining. You just have to believe in yourself & never stop believing.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?

BenniHunna- I say different flows & beat selection. Try different types of music. You don’t want the audience to feel like they’ve heard the same song over & over. You can even keep the same style but just switch it up lil bit so they can’t predict how the record will sound.
