On Wednesday night’s episode of SIGNED, Just Brittany ended her performance for the moguls with a tiny (re: not tiny) announcement. She decided to let everyone know that she and Kaiya both used the same beat for their songs, making it nearly impossible for the judges not to compare the two very different artists. Well played, Brittany. Well played.
Watch the drama in the video below:
We caught up with Kaiya after the dust settled to hear her thoughts since she was notably silent when it all went down. We know that she thinks Rick Ross may have been “blinded by the butt,” but what else does she think about the situation?
VH1: I wanted to know if there was a reason that you didn’t really speak up at the moment. If you could go back what would you say?
Kaiya: To be honest, I held my tongue for a good purpose I felt. I didn’t feel like that was the time and the place to be doing that in front of the moguls; that’s pretty unprofessional to do. At the same time, I’m not here to go back and forth with anybody. I’m here strictly for my own self and for my own music and all of that. And I felt, personally, that it was unnecessary for what she did say. But, at the same time, I guess because it’s a free-for-all, survival of the fittest situation, she may have felt like she needed to do that. I’m not sure what her intentions were or anything of the sort. It kind of was just like…Okay? Now what? Like, it didn’t make her situation any better or mine any worse. So it was just, to me, unnecessary.
VH1: Let’s say you had gone before her. You weren’t going to bring any of that up?
Kaiya: No! If I would have went before she did, I would have never even mentioned the fact that we had the same track. I’m not going to damage—not damage—but I’m not going to say anything about her music and mine. Our songs sounded totally different, you know what I’m saying? Even when I heard hers, I never said anything bad about her music. I never said anything of that such, but if I would’ve went before she did, they would’ve never even known we had the same track. It wasn’t nothing to say. It wasn’t nothing like that, but that was a decision she made.
VH1: And how did you feel about the mogul’s response to your track after all of that was said and done? Do you think it would’ve been different if you had gone first?
Kaiya: I was okay with their response. I mean, at the same time, it is a song. So they do have the right not to like it or not. That was their preference. I didn’t see anything wrong with anything that they said. I do feel that, because our tracks were the same and she made the comments that she made, that they were probably comparing the two. Which still, I see nothing wrong with that. That was their decision to make. But, even in that situation, I didn’t feel anything bad from that. I had felt like I got good feedback from that whether it had been negative things said towards what was going on or the positive things that were said afterwards. So, I was okay with everything that was going on in that setting at that point.
And if you didn’t know, now you know!
In order to determine who is the better rapper, the moguls request a rap battle between Nilly and newcomer Ren Thomas on the next episode of SIGNED. Tune in on Wednesday at 9/8c to see who comes out victorious.
