Kyla is the voice of UK Funky. Since ‘Do You Mind’ dropped back in 2009, hers has been the voice most closely associated with the genre, the sound of late-decade house parties and the first wave of garage revival. Then along came Drake and one of the UK’s most niche genres was introduced to an international audience, with Kyla’s voice front and centre yet again. Now she’s stepping out on her own again with her new single ‘You Ain’t Mine’ featuring dancehall icon Popcaan. The video drops tomorrow and to get us in the mood she’s come through with some exclusive snaps behind the scenes of the shoot in Jamaica for a very special Mood Board.
Team Versus Time
Believe it or not these amazing strap up heels took an hour to lace, my amazing styling team had to lace these up while I was being filmed from the waist up before we lost the sunset. It was a very funny moment
Midnight Swim Under the Stars
I’ve always wanted to do a pool scene ever since i shot my first music video. I finally achieved it and whats more is i got to shoot it in Jamaica at midnight, under the stars, high up in the mountains over looking a beautiful beach, this is by far one of my most epic moments in life.
1st shot of the day
Finally I’m here shooting my first official video in Jamaica. The weather is beautiful and even the sudden burst of rain for about 15 minutes only refreshed the atmosphere where as in most video shoots rain can be the downfall! Super loved it here!
Poppy & Me
This pic was taken just before we started the last scene of the day. Was really good catching up with Popcaan and meeting the rest of the Unruly family.
It’s a wrap!
Finito. All over. What an amazing experience this was, all that was left from here was the two and a half hour drive back through the misty mountains back to Kingston.
