Born on July 22nd 2001 and raised on Long Island New York, Kendall Joshua has quite the story. Joshua got an early start, producing since the age of 6 and rapping shortly after. Joshua grew up in Baldwin New York and attended Baldwin middle school and Baldwin Senior High school, which is also home to pop artist Melanie Martinez. Joshua became much known for her style and androgynous appearance as well. Joshua doesn’t claim a specific gender and has stated “people view me as they view me, but I don’t care about it nor do I have a problem with it. I look how I look and do what I do. There’s no way to describe me.. his or hers… it’s whatever. I’m not trying to be non conforming either I don’t think, I literally am this way.”
Living as an inspiration to those of all ages contributes to the success of Joshua’s music. Songs like “Aamon’s Lane,” “I Explode,” and “Wholly Love,” show the true spirit of this artist. The merging of electronic music with rap and pop make for a transformative sound, hence Joshua’s nickname: ‘KJTheRevolution.’
Even though she was a minor, Kendall was performing in night clubs and blowing huge crowds away being chauffeured by her father to these events and having him as her personal photographer. Joshua’s career took a turning point after the release of her 2019 album GANAR. The ten track album written and produced by her was named a ‘’motivational masterpiece,” and the 17 year old Wholly Love singer gained worldwide recognition as it got airplay. Kendall has a slew of supporters that she herself engages with, and that is where the magic is.
