Los Angeles, CA – R&B’s potential newest darling Kayla Brianna recently stopped by DXHQ and announced that she’s teaming up with London on da Track for a new EP. “London on da Track and I are actually doing an EP together so I’ll be going to Atlanta in a couple weeks to work on that.” The announcement comes on the heels of her latest single and video “Work For It” produced by London and featuring YFN Lucci.
Also known as the daughter to NBA champion and NBA on TNT star Kenny Smith, the 23-year-old artist is looking to break out and make a name for herself in music. The partnership with London aims to do just that. London has made a name for himself over the past four years, producing for all of the South’s heavyweights from Waka Flocka Flame, Gucci Mane, Rich Homie Quan and Travis Porter to fellow Cash Money artists Lil Wayne and frequent collaborator Young Thug. London is best known as the mastermind behind the boards on T.I.’s 2014 RIAA gold-selling winner “About the Money” featuring Young Thug and Rich Gang’s chart-topping single “Lifestyle.”

Influences and idols are a key component of every up-and-coming singer and Kayla cited an R&B staple as the main source of her inspiration.
“I love Brandy. Growing up [for me] she had the TV show, she had the Barbie dolls… the harmonies, the stacks, everything was just so dope on that record,” she explained while also recalling her fondness of Brandy’s 2002 album Full Moon.
“Brandy has a lot of influence in my sound, as well as Aaliyah. So I definitely have a lot of harmonies, a lot of stacks, a lot more soulful tracks and a bunch of uptempo club records too.”
The still untitled-EP is expected drop some time in 2017.
