Kaya Jones is ready for blast off with the release of her newest pop/dance album “Confessions Of A Hollywood Doll,” and DG gets Kaya to confess a few details. The former Pussycat Doll went Platinum in 2010 with her single “Take it Off” feat. Regi, and is ready to go platinum again with her latest hit single “Release the Energy,” one of many hits available on the record.
How does it feel to release “Confessions Of A Hollywood Doll” on your birthday?
It feels amazing! It’s been my dream since forever to release my record worldwide on my own label. I feel so blessed. (Happy Birthday!)
Where did you get your inspiration for the album? What prompted the title of the album?
The inspiration was my journey. What I went through personally and also what I saw in the business. I wanted to talk about sexuality a little bit, dance of course, and on the flip side talk about your inner power as a girl/woman. Us girls can be anything we wanna be! Oh, and of course the boys too!
I hear that “Confessions Of A Hollywood Doll” album kick starts the Hollywood Doll brand. Can you tell me a little more about that?
I am finally fully involved in my career the way I always dreamed. I am writing all my songs on the next album and super involved in all my ventures. Including the album being released on my label HueMan Race Records Inc. The Hollywood Doll brand is going to be everything from my albums to my Clothing lines, make-up lines, toys for young girls, and many other things that are in the works. I have partnered with an amazing designer. I can’t reveal to much just yet, but the album is the beginning of the launch. My fans are all Hollywood Dolls. A Hollywood Doll can be anything they wanna be.
I also hear Viacom International just picked up your music video “Release The Energy” and currently airing it throughout Europe and Canada. How excited are you about this? Is R.T.E your favorite track on the album?
I am so excited! R.T.E (Release The Energy) has been my baby. I believed in this song from day one. I knew what I wanted for the video and was blessed to have a director like Davy Duhamel take it to that next level. The album has many of my favorites. R.T.E is one for sure. But so is Around You, Magic, Breakdown, Like U, and Hollywood Doll – its tough to just pick one! Depends on my day.
Are there any particular songs on the album you think the dance community will love?
Yes, “Around You” is hot! Also, “Every 7 Seconds,” “So Nice,” and “Magic.”
Speaking of the dance community, I heard you’re putting together an online dance competition soon. Can you share any details?
Yes, I’m the official face of Allday Energy Drink and Shane Sparks has now signed on as my Choreographer. We with DancersGlobal and Allday Energy Drink, are now working on a Release The Energy Dance competition!
