Ak'Sent - Zingy
Artist Ak'SentSong title Zingy
Ak'Sent's infectious debut single, "Zingy" is already blazing up the charts in the US, with her hot album 'International' dropping on June 20th!
One listen to the tongue-twisting rhymes of "Zingy", the first single off Ak'Sent's debut album, International, and you may notice this is not your ordinary newcomer. For one thing, this fresh-faced MC is a she. And another reason: she's 18 years old. But as anyone who gets to know Ak'Sent (Krystle Johnson) soon discovers, there's much more to this unassumingly petite girl than meets the eye.
The LA native had an impressive resume for her age — dance training with Debbie Allen and Lula Washington, stints in several R&B-based girl groups — but it was her fierce flow that wowed the room at Capitol Records. Because of her sheer determination to do things on her own, something the half-African-American, half-Latina Ak'Sent had grown accustomed to having lost her father to gang life and her mother to welfare, she was given room to grow and experiment in the studio, both vocally and musically.
