Kendra Jae Feels Wanted: Sacramento-born, L.A.-based R&B singer Kendra Jae has released falsetto new single “Wanted.” Appropriate to the holiday period, the song is the followup to the collabs with DaniLeigh on “BBC” and AUGUST 08 on “Under the Mistletoe.” Both appeared on Def Jam Recordings’ Def The Halls compilation.
According to the press release, “With ‘Wanted,’ Kendra gives a rundown of her emotional needs, detailing the specifics behind how she likes to be loved. The record is filled with one liners that lay out a modern and relatable blueprint for love, one taken straight from her own intimate experiences.”
“I feel like [‘Wanted’] is the epitome of what every girl thinks but might not say out loud,” Jae said in a statement. “Wanting to be wanted is a universal desire that we all crave – whether we want to admit it or not.”

Kendra Jae Feels Wanted: The “Wanted” single is out now.
“Sacramento-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, dancer, and choreographer Kendra Jae instantly turns heads with an unapologetic attitude backed up by traffic-stopping vocal dynamics. After high school, she launched her career as a professional dancer which eventually led to being the youngest dancer on Beyoncé’s historic Formation World Tour. She also joined Drake on tour and hit the stage alongside everyone from Gwen Stefani to Dua Lipa, and choreographed music videos for Chloe x Halle and Saweetie. In between, she developed a signature style of her own while working on her solo music career. In 2020, she released her first single “PER$ONA” and went on to collaborate with Bizness Boi [Elton John, Rihanna] on “916” and Grammy award-winner Camper [H.E.R., Mariah Carey] on “YKT.” During 2021, she linked up with Saweetie on “Seesaw” from her Pretty Summer Playlist: Season 1 EP, racking up over one million streams. And now, the multidisciplinary songstress is ready to take her talent to the next level, proving that she’s more than capable of being a standalone star in the truest sense.”
