Quality Control Music has added another force of nature to their star-studded roster, Milwaukee native, Lakeyah. Quality Control CEO, Pierre Thomas has been working with the young talent for years. “She has all the makings of a star,” stated Pierre. “I have no doubt she’s going to rise quickly in this culture and make a big mark for herself.”
Lakeyah is certainly living up to P’s expectations as she inked a deal with the iconic and legendary Motown Records and just released her latest EP entitled No Pressure Part 1. The project includes single “I Look Good,” which garnered praise from The Source, Uproxx, and REVOLT, referring to the track as a “confidence-filled anthem that serves to show off her style and spirit just before her summertime takeover.”
The Female Goat has her foot on the gas with no plans of letting up, also releasing single “Mind Yo Business” [feat. Latto] off the EP. Lakeyah spoke on the collaboration stating, “I got the chance to collab with one of my favorite new era rap girl! Both the song and the video are fire. I can’t wait for everyone to hear Mind Yo Business.”
Ahead of the EP release, Lakeyah curated a Mental Health Awareness panel with Audiomack around body image, self-esteem and social media influence. In addition to Lakeyah, the panel also included artists Lady London, Kali and KenTheMan as well as plastic surgeon Dr. Miami and therapist & licensed clinical social worker Shevon Jones. Watch the panel here.
Lakeyah has big plans to become a staple in this industry as a female artist who displays authenticity, allowing others to understand the importance to follow suit.
