Introducing Katy B + “On A Mission” MP3

Do you know Katy B? You should. The 21 year old is tearing up the charts in the UK with her debut album, On A Mission, snatching the #2 spot (just behind Adele). Katy comments on her album, “it’s me; just as a young woman, partying, relationships… the album’s definitely where I’m coming from.” The genre bending artist traverses gritty underground production, dubstep, pop hooks, and soul sophistication all in one fell swoop. Released this past April in the UK, On A Mission will officially hit the US on September 13th. Download the title track below for free and view the video after the jump!

If you were amongst the lucky ones, you caught her intimate live performance at Le Bain at The Standard last night. Giant Step was proud to co-present Katy B’s U.S. debut as part of the continuing Steve Madden Music series. It was a gorgeous evening with some lovely folks. You can find coverage of the event at Brooklyn Vegan, Village Voice and Prefix Mag.
