Meet Rising Star Kierra Luv

From a co-sign by Cardi B to dropping a major joint with Tory Lanez “Can’t Stand It”, Kierra Luv is creating quite the stir within the biz. She just released a new banger “Good Day” featuring Ray Moon and it’s another notch in the belt of the sure bet next up star in Hip Hop. Both joints are slated to be included in her upcoming mixtape ‘Take It Or Leave It’ due out this spring.

Here’s the official line on Kierra Luv:

Often spitting so hard that tears stream down her face, Harrisburg, PA artist Kierra Luv raps with the surefire spirit, undeniable intensity, and street wisdom of a hard-lived life. After writing poetry to help process her feelings, Kierra turned to rapping at an early age. Inspired by Lil Wayne and Chris Brown, she auditioned for Lifetime’s The Rap Game. Despite not making it on to the show, her numbers started to increase online as she consistently posted freestyles. Her 2018 take on Cardi B’s “Money” exploded. It went from a plug on Say Cheese and WorldStarHipHop, to Love & Hip-Hop star Tabius Tate passing it on to Cardi B, who immediately shared it on Instagram. Viewed over 14 million times in under six months, a major label signing scramble soon ensued.  Finding a home at 10K Projects/Electric Feel Entertainment, Kierra introduced her incendiary and irresistible sound on the 2019 singles “Put You On” and “Ride My Wave.”

From the outside looking in, who is Kierra Luv the artist?

I want to be known as an artist who shares her story through music while bringing hope and motivation to people on their journey. Giving voice to the voiceless means the most to me so I try to bring comfort to life situations that most people grapple with, in my music. As I progress in this industry, I want my fans to be with me every step of the way. This is no longer just my journey. It’s our journey.

What brought you to the entertainment industry, music specifically?

I make music as a means of expression and a way to unite people. I initially wanted to perfect the way I interpret and make music but I discovered it’s deeper than that. Now it’s about showing others that it’s okay to feel the way we do and create a sense of togetherness.

What is the most satisfying for you about making music?

My favorite part about making music is connecting on a concept in my head and being able to bring it to life the exact same way I pictured it.

Tell us about your current project and where it stands for you in your body of work!

My first project Take It Or Leave is definitely my introduction to the world as people get a better sense of who Kierra is. This is me planting my seeds into the industry while putting in blood sweat and tears— leaving room for only growth. Take It Or Leave It out soon!

For new listeners, what song of yours would you pick as an introduction to you as an artist?

With all of my songs, you’ll have the opportunity to get a sense of who I am. Start with my new single “Good Day” featuring Ray Moon and let the playlist lead the way!

Tell us a bit about your work and passions OUTSIDE of music…

Outside of music I love to entertain people whether on social media or even just hanging out with family and friends. I value learning about people as they learn more about me. I’m a curious person by nature, so I love learning new things overall—trivial stuff and all.

Last but not least, HYPE wants to know…What’s your CRAZIEST “Where they do that at?!” aka WTF?! moment…

Crazy enough, I experience WTF moments every time a fan reaches out to me about my music. It never gets old to me and I’m always amazed that people care about what I have to say. I never imagined going this far, and having an impact, so it’s mind-blowing most of the time.
