Listen to "Gemini" here.
Welcome to BuzzMusic, Kendra Erika. We love the upbeat and mysterious vibe of your latest single, "Gemini." What inspired you to create a song surrounding a Gemini's dynamic ways?
The concept of a Gemini is very dynamic, astrological or not. One of my producers in LA, Chris Garcia and I doubled up to write this one. The fact that we both, in sync, started singing “Gemini” in the place where the hook is, is super meant to be, especially because it was a dual and parallel thought and idea that we had together. It wasn’t until after the fact that I realized the most turbulent, yet most thrilling relationship I ever had, was with a Gemini. So, this was a long time coming in writing about it to channel that past experience.
Did you produce your single "Gemini" yourself? How did you create the sonics to complement the song's lyrical theme?
Chris Garcia (Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Santana) and I teamed up to create “Gemini." He provided the track, and we sat down in his studio and wrote to the track he curated.
How do songs like "Gemini" represent your brand and the music you create? Do you aim to delve deeper into the electronic/dance realm with your future releases?
I would absolutely love to continue trailblazing down the electronic/dance road. A couple of ballads here and there to allow the blaze to breathe, and to showcase a more intimate facet of my vocal ability. But, delving deeper into the EDM realm is where I will drive the chariot moving onward. Being that you've landed multiple tracks in the top ten of Billboard's Dance Charts, do you ever find it challenging to create music that reaches the bar and standards of your previous well-received singles?
With each song I’m building, I never want to put that unnecessary pressure on myself to meet those bars or standards. Does that mean I don’t strive for excellence? Of course not. Each project is different, so being a believer in nostalgia, every song and production is going to be the best in its unique form. Let’s just say I have adapted a “c’est la vie” attitude, with a “carpe diem” mentality to achieve the most quality out of each song. The universe has its hand on me. What can we expect to see next?
The next single called “Rapture” will be released in the heart of the summer. And, from there, more pedal to the metal as far as new music, and live performances to come in the near future.
