K’reema is one of the fresh new melodic voices on the international music scene. She is a very powerful vocalist and a creative songwriter, who has the ability to please her fans by delivering mesmerizing stage performances with effortless vocals. K’reema has fused a number of genres, from Dancehall and Reggae to R&B and Pop, to create her very own unique sound.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, K’reema has been surrounded by music all her life. Being the daughter of one of Jamaica’s most revered Dancehall stars, the legendary King Yellowman, she was born in it! She is also niece of the “Revalations” fame, Reggae singer Abijah, and her late maternal grandfather, Winston Smith, is also a founding drummer in the legendary The Mystic Revelation of Rastafari. Music is literally in her blood.

From a very young age, it was evident that K’reema would follow in her father’s footsteps. While growing up she would parade around the house singing the songs of her favorite singers, often mimicking her idols, such as the late Whitney Houston. Her family and friends were always impressed with K’reema’s ability to showcase her talent at such a young age.

K’reema began writing poetry at the age of nine. By the time she was 11 years old, she began writing songs, the first titled ‘One More Chance’. In the ensuing years, she pursued her music career by performing on local talent shows, including the famous Tastee’s Talent Show, which happened to be the very same show that catapulted her father to his fame.

Living in the NY for the past few years, K’reema placed music on the back burner, in order to pursue intermediate goals. However, after working in the medical field for a period of time as an EMT, she finally decided to quit her job, and follow her dreams, to pursue her musical career in full gear.
Since then K’reema has performed on a number of concerts in the US and Jamaica. She recently made an appearance at the famous BB Kings, where she opened for and was joined by her father, King Yellowman, on stage to perform his rendition of his hit cover of Fats Domino’s ‘Blueberry Hill’. She even received glory from her current idol, Beyonce, who used her cover in a promotional campaign for her single ‘Pretty Hurts’.

K’reema has been currently promoting her debut single and music video titled ‘We Don’t Give What’, an up tempo party track which plays ode to her “born and grow” style, mixing dancehall and pop. K’reema is destined for musical greatness.
