Cali-girl Kylie Hughes is showing off her comedy chops and a whole lot more in her new Talladega Nights-inspired video. Hughes took to California’s Irwindale Speedway for “Heat.”
Talladega Nights is one of my favorite movies and I felt like it could be a great vehicle to tie in the racy feel of the song, while showing my less serious side,” she remarked.
The video directed by Frank Borin, does not hold back, and neither does Kylie. Borin praised the songstress saying…
Kylie brought it. And there are very few artists who can bring it to the table like she did. Literally, KFC chicken make out and all.”
The original track, produced by Mark McKee, premiered on Myspace earlier this year. The Huffington Post praised the “Heat” saying saying, “If anyone is spinning their wheels wondering, “Who is Hughes?” this song and video should get their motor running.”
Starting at the age of 12, Kylie has always been writing and recording music. Her debut EP, 2014’s “Calipopicana”, earned her fans and critics, landing features in Examiner, Good Day LA, K-CAL TV 9, InStyle.com, Music Connection and more…
Kylie’s contagious, spontaneous energy has led to performances alongside the likes of The Beach Boys, John Mayer, Jewel and Michael W. Smith…just to name a few…as well as performance opportunities like her most recent run at SXSW 2017. Unwritten remarked that, “Kylie isn’t afraid to sound different from her fellow female artists. She stands out from the crowd – which is a necessity in today’s world of music.”
“Heat” marks the first single from Kylie’s forthcoming self-titled album, released on May 26th.
