Kendy X – Options
Acclaimed R&B singer/songwriter Kendy X continues to illuminate as one-to-watch with today’s release of her new music video to “Options” via Rose Records. Directed by renowned creative director Philon The Goat, the stripped-down visionary effort sensationally showcases Kendy X’s feminine flare and dazzles in ferocity to complement the tracks empowering tone.
Kendy X shares, “Options is one of the records I relate to right now from the project. As women, we have as many options as men do, and often that idea is forgotten because of our natural senses to stay loyal to a relationship that may not be the best for us. I feel like so many young women can relate to this track and feel empowered as they navigate a journey of love or a loss of love.”
The official music video of “Options” arrives on the heels of Kendy X’s debut project release, Misplaced. Receiving an array of editorial praise from Apple Music, Pandora and more and aided by the project’s anchor single, Billboard-charting “For Me Remix” featuring DreamDoll and Kalan.FrFr, the six-track EP is continuing to soar to new heights.
As the ending of Spring hits, the desire to rewind and move forward kicks in, reliving every magical moment from the season’s past. It’s a vibe that newcomer Kendy X has eloquently encapsulated in her debut EP. The 21-year-old entertainer, the buzz-worthy artist, has arrived. Wasting no time to bring her dimensional talent live in living, vivid color, Kendy X is set to conclude her first nationwide tour alongside LA’s own Kalan.FrFr for his Never Lose You Tour this week on 5/21/22 in Santa Ana, CA.

About Kendy X:
Dedication and discipline drive success in any arena. Kendy X gained her grind mentality from a childhood dedicated to gymnastics and now she applies it to music with her own scorching and sizzling brand of R&B. The Chicago-born and Long Beach-raised singer, songwriter, and co-founder of The MarleyRose Music Festival hustles with the heart of an athlete as she simultaneously projects a fresh and fiery presence across the culture.
Kendy X’s vision begins to unfold on her 2022 independent debut project and much more to come.
“Even though gymnastics and music are completely different, gymnastics taught me work ethic and how to perform in front of people,” she affirms. “The dedication helped me in the long run. I learned how to put all of my effort into what I want to do—and just do it.”
She devoted the first eighteen years of life to gymnastics until torn ligaments in her knee derailed an ambition to compete in The Olympics. Along the way, she picked up cello and piano in middle school and always wrote songs of her own. Inspired by her older sister Ry Dope, she penned her first tune at just six-years-old. Meanwhile, dad played multiple instruments, specializing in guitar and songwriting and enjoying local success back in Chicago.
Despite its influence on the periphery of her life, she fully embraced music in 2019.
“After I stopped training, music came in,” she admits. “I found my new passion to focus on. It always got me through difficult times. This moment was no exception.”
From that point forward, she went full steam ahead throughout 2021. Alongside Ry Dope, she launched The Rose Music Festival as a state-of-the-art Southern California festival experience. Not only did the founders perform, but the stacked lineup boasted Mozzy, Rubi Rose, Eric Bellinger, Day Sulan, Stunna, Kalan.FrFr, 1TakeJay, and more. At the same time, Kendy X hit the studio and recorded what would become her soon to be released EP. Produced by Ayo & Keyz [Cardi B, Chris Brown, Bryson Tiller], the first single “For Me” served as a slick and sexy introduction to her signature style. As the original version generated over 1 million total streams, Kalan.FrFr and DreamDoll stunted on the Remix with surefire starpower.
In the end, Kendy X has become just what she was always meant to be—a force of nature.
“Music was always the thing that helped me feel like I’m okay,” she leaves off. “We’re all going through things, but we’ve got each other. I hope people relate to my songs, and they feel a sense of happiness, reliability, and love.”
