Lily Kiing is the UK singer redefining female energy and sexuality through her music and performances, and most recently Schmoney, her latest single which premiered on Radar Radio’s #MorningsUnfiltered show. The track showcases the artists rich vocals, feminine sensuality and sexuality. With a Trap meets R&B feel, Schmoney, produced by House of Pharaoh’s frequent collaborator, oneninenine offers a vibe that will have you feeling like it’s actually been a lit summer and this was the soundtrack.
With the successful release of her recent track, Schmoney (click here for the visuals), I spoke to Lily Kiing about the importance of gender stereotypes and confidence; a message which is very much portrayed through her music.
How would you describe yourself, (Lily Kiing) as an artist?
Fearless. A quote maker, always looking for new ways to interpret the importance of self awareness through the aura of ‘Lily Kiing’. We’re the same in some ways but many ways different, she’s just a lit version of me.
You speak about redefining female energy and sexuality through your music, what’s the main message that you would like to spread about the topic?
Being sexy , expressing it through clothing and music. The way my words roll and adapt to my surroundings, don’t be afraid to be sexy and beautiful. No one can tell you different, be man or woman you’re amazing. You gotta tell yourself that first.I went through too many years of being told ‘women don’t do that’ and such, I’m not the one to conform it doesn’t make sense to. I’m proud of my sensuality and sexuality.
The visuals for your new video Schmoney are amazing – how did you come about the idea?
I created the mood board a few months before, my mind works in a complex way but by writing and puzzling it makes sense. Making sure Lilys need for beauty was shown, aesthetically pleasing for both viewer and myself. With the help of Vito Camaro’s eye for beauty and colours , he’s mind worked so well with my vision for the visuals. Thank god for insta
What can we see next from you?
Visuals and music. I’ve created material throughout the year which I’m more than happy to bring to the world. Allowing myself to endeavour in new sounds, it’s just the beginning.
Do you have any upcoming shows?
Towards the end of the month through to the end of the year I have a few planned. I’ll make sure the information is out there very soon.
