Issa Rae of 'Insecure' Launches Her Own Record Label with TeaMarrr's 'Kinda Love'
Issa Rae of "Insecure" just launched her own record label with Teamarrr's newly released single, "Kinda Love."
Issa Rae, through her newly launched record label "Raedio," just partnered up with Atlantic Records to produce "Kinda Love" by singer-rapper TeaMarrr.
While it began earlier this year, Raedio just released its first single and aims to serve artists and creators to the highest level as an "audio everywhere" company.
Launching TeaMarrr's Latest Single
TeaMarrr, it's featured artist, is a Boston-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter who had her breakout single last year called "One Job." Now that she's released "Kinda Love" with Issa Rae, she can expect nothing but the best exposure and publicity for her craft.
After all, Issa Rae herself has had quite a career be it in acting or singing. Her award-winning HBO series "Insecure" is living proof that while she's ventured into other crafts, music is still something she keeps close to her heart.
Rae's Love for Music
When asked about her decision to create her own record label, Rae shares that it is her avenue to continue working in the music industry.
“Music has always been an essential part of every project I do and working with emerging talent is a personal passion. Raedio allows me to continue that work within the music industry and audio entertainment space. The Atlantic Records team are innovators in terms of shifting and shaping culture. I’m excited to join forces with them to discover new artists."
Rae's Other Major Venture
Aside from this new venture, Issa is also teaming up with New Line to re-do "Set It Off," which is a classic crime thriller that starred Jada Pinkett-Smith and Queen Latifah two decades ago.
She will be producing the film alongside Montrel McKay, her production partner. Of course, Rae will be starring in the remake as well.
On "Set It Off"
While not a lot has been revealed about the remake, writers Syreeta Singleton, known for her work on "Black Monday," and Nina Gloster, who worked on Lee Daniels' "Star," are set to join the team.
"Set It Off" follows the story of four friends who all hope to have a better life. Their quest leads them to commit bank robberies, which after enjoying the money they stole, all ended up with tragic ends.
With so much on her plate, the future looks pretty bright for Issa Rae, who has her plate quite full in the next couple of months.
