If you haven’t heard of Colette Carr in your music news feeds, then you haven’t been paying attention. The sometimes-rapper, sometimes-singer has risen from blogger praise bragging rights to label status in record time.
With an already established fanbase—159,000 of whom are represented on Twitter—Carr prides herself on “making music fast,” a habit that made possible her five-part, on-the-fly Skitszo series, the fourth chapter of which arrived earlier this month.
“It makes sense to release my music as fast as I write and record it,” she said in a statement. “The world moves at breakneck speed thanks to technology—exactly like my mouth moves thanks to my brain.”
Unleashed frolicking and potty-mouthed antics earn Carr big YouTube numbers, as seen in her house party anthem “Never Gonna Happen" that surpassed the two million view mark.
At 22, her resume is impressive. She’s made cameos in LMFAO and Far East Movement videos, she’s unloaded 100,000 mixtapes to fans, and she’s signed to Cherrytree Records. Keep an eye on this girl, kids. Not like that will be hard or anything.
The full, 20-song release of Skitszo is scheduled for July 9th. You can follow Carr on Twitter at @ColetteCrazy.
