Amanda Ibanez, better known as Kiddo A.I., was raised in a family of gifted musicians and was completely aware of her destiny from a young age. Not just a talented singer and topliner, she’s also a multi-instrumentalist and a fluent Spanish speaker. She’s what you might call fuego femenino.
The first few years of Kiddo’s career saw a string of successful collaborations in different genres. Following her first vocal feature with rapper Bernz, she caught the ear of his label’s co-founder Tech N9ne who pulled her in to collaborate on his track “Til I’m Gone”. She then went on to work with popular DJ duo SMLE, racking up a collective 10 million Spotify streams between the three singles “Into Something”, “2 Me” and “Stranded”.
We first encountered Kiddo last year as a member of Miami’s Cashae collective with their song “Endless Summer”, which we placed in the season finale of MTV’s reality show “Ex On The Beach” and the Les Mills exercise program BODYATTACK. The song was a breakout track for her as a lead vocalist, landing on Spotify’s New Music Friday in 15 countries as well as multiple major editorial playlists.
After all these successful collaborations Kiddo has finally graduated to releasing music under her own name, starting with her first solo-release “Like That”, an infectious and sensual bop with a hint of R&B reminiscent of Beyoncé’s early hits. Her debut EP “Ok To Disconnect” is set to be released later this year.
