YouTube Superstars Karmin Perform Medley For Ryan Seacrest [AUDIO]
Dynamic musical duo Karmin, which is comprised of engaged couple Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, came in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Tuesday to play their debut single “Crash Your Party,” and to perform an amazing medley comprised of “Party Rock Anthem” by L.M.F.A.O., “Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj, and “Look At Me Now” by Chris Brown. Listen to their live performance in the player above!
Since their rise to popularity over the past six months Nick believes “everything has changed! Being able to sit down with Kayne West…” Amy finishes his thought reminding “LA Reid signed us to Sony Epic label. We even got to talked to Chris Martin [of Coldplay], and met Nicki Minaj at iHeartRadio.” Amy further explains meeting the colorful and controversial singer saying,
“We had heard through the grapevine that she had seen our videos, but when she saw us perform ‘Super Bass’ [at iHeartRadio] she was like, ‘You guys are so beautiful! Just keep doing what your doing. You’re so epic. AND you’re cute too!”
Karmin was even able to “meet Kayne West at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York. He was upstairs recording ‘Watch The Throne’ with Jay-Z. We were an hour late to meet him, because we were with LA Reid for the first time. Imagine being an hour late to meet your idol! We get there he just shared with us his process for writing songs. We even played him some of our music!”
Nick explains Kayne is “totally chill, and completely engaging. He was making sure everybody’s in the conversation. He’s almost shy at times. We had no idea what to expect, honestly, but he was awesome.”
Sadly, the duo “are not currently doing music with him, but we’re hoping that will happen in the future. We love his artist Big Sean too,” says Amy.
The YouTube stars explain their premiere single ‘Crash Your Party’ as “a fun 90’s throwback feeling song. We’ve got a sample in there from ‘Black Sheep.’ So we rap over that. Its a fun jam. Its fun to sing at the top of your lungs in your car.”
Nick explains the meaning of the song as “talking to someone who thinks their awesome, and ‘crashing their party.’ For us its also about crashing the industries party by not showing up the routine way.”
After their in studio performance featuring Amy’s rapping abilities Nick exclaims, “All my friends dad’s are like ‘How are you ever going to win an argument with her?’
