Raised in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn, a neighborhood rigidly defined by cultural identity, where a stroll down the streets is a kaleidoscopic merge of colors, cultures, and flavors, Krista used her roots as inspiration to release debut album, Taking Back Brooklyn on J Records in September 2009 and opened for Kelly Clarkson's summer tour months before its release. She's back with a brand new video to kick off summer in style.
Krista's new single, "Hypnotized," is a catchy summertime party jam with a driving beat, the perfect soundtrack for a hot, carefree summer night out with friends. Shot at various locations in Brooklyn and NYC, the video chronicles an urban journey from Krista's basement house party into the streets of the city. As news of the impromptu party spreads through word-of-mouth, more friends of friends join the party, which quickly outgrows the basement and spills onto the streets and subways of NYC. Soon, they end up at the famous Canal Room where Krista performs "Hypnotized" for a packed and sweaty crowd, singing, "Take me where the music is loud so I can break free / That's the place where I wanna be."
