Watch Kamaiyah's Flyer-Than-Most "How You Want It" Music Video
Oakland, nay, I dare say the West Coast should be on notice that there is a new ruler coming to dominate the airwaves. Yes, we’re placing our stamp of approval on Kamaiyah, best known for her A Good Night in the Ghetto tape. She has dropped her official video for “How You Want It,” which has us very, very excited. The bass-heavy, bossed-up cut, which was produced by Cardo Got Wings + loved by pubs such as Stereogum, makes the most of her promising talents while framing her as this generation’s next untouchable rap royal.
The video, directed by Damien Sandoval (Lil’ Yachty, Bobby Brackins), has Kamaiyah spitting Kamehameha-esque rhymes directly into the camera. Enveloped in soft blue lights and hazy smoke, this clip proves what many in the know have been trying to let others know for the past eight months — Kamaiyah is worth your time + hype. With an original vibe, a distinct approach to rhyming and a character that is captivating and cool at the same damn time, Kamaiyah is perfect for any season: winter, spring, summer and fall.
You don’t have to take our word for it. Have a listen for yourself as the compelling chameleon, building a name as the Queen of the West Coast, cements her growing rep with “How You Want It,” a vibrant video for an equally vivacious audience.
