Philadelphia native Kay Amira, also always known as the cool girl next door, showcased her new EP, “Girl Next Door” at her listening party via DTLR this passing Saturday, Dec. 28, 2019. Girl Next Door releases Jan. 1, 2020, so just a few days before, Kay Amira’s supporters were invited to come celebrate the new project with her.
Opening up for Kay, a few Philly underground creators performed their music for the crowd, warming up for the heat about to be played. Kayla Enfiniti, Philly’s favorite cellist Aijee Evans, and Shay The Don all brought the stage some talent, all the while getting the crowd ready to hear Girl Next Door.
The EP itself is nothing short of an urban R&B vibe, and shows how much of a lane Kay has to herself. With sturdy samples and a calm vibe, when Girl Next Door is shared with the world the content will be hard to deny. Watch a short IGTV recap of the listening party below:
