The multi-talented singer and songwriter, born Kiyanna Greene, is a rising recording artist. Her admiration for music first presented itself in early childhood. This is where she found her love for singing and discovered her amazing voice. Kíy’s goal is to create a unique experience for her listeners with each track. She elegantly unites the sound of classic R&B and Pop with the innovative sounds of today’s musical landscape.

The unique and captivating songstress presents her blazing debut single “Cuud Neva,” released via independent label Purple Drip Entertainment. The track is a hard-hitting club banger with remixes from Eric Kupper (credited with 121 Billboard #1 records) who has reworked songs by Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Alicia Keys, Lenny Kravitz, and Shakira amongst other notable artists. If you are a fan of stellar production and lyrical prowess, then this music release is for you. The record is about to catapult Kíy onto the national radar.

Kíy puts her heart and soul into every track. Her flow, delivery and cadence are all top notch. The Twin Cities artist cites icons such as Whitney Houston, Beyonce, Janet Jackson, Etta James, Lauren Hill, MC Lyte, Christina Aguilera, as the pivotal influences in her music. The magnetic singer possesses a complete package of artistry. Her charismatic personality exudes swagger and she has gained the respect of fans on the Westcoast and beyond.

Part of what makes Kíy so intriguing is her ability to connect with the listener. Her relentless work ethic, confident delivery and unique style are the main ingredients that set her apart from other up and coming artists. Be prepared for an extravaganza!
