maybe a bit younger.
Who’s your biggest inspiration?
Cece Peniston is my biggest inspiration because, she was and
still is my Auntie that watched me grow from a baby to who I

learned first hand from her the struggles of the
entertainment industry and how to still remain
strong and true to yourself
no matter the outcome.
What genre of music do you create?
I do Hip-Hop but, I also do R&B.

One right now with Kswizz, it’s not out yet.

I would take a record deal but, would have to probably negotiate
something with a distribution deal.
Who are your biggest supporters?
My best friend Miah and a few associates.
Where did your name come from?
Originally my name was given to me by an ex-boyfriend of mine that
I had met in 8th grade but, it was originally “DreyatheDamsel”
beforehand. He got “Dreya” from my legal middle name which is
“Alexandreya” and he gave me the nickname damsel as if I were
like a damsel in distress but, I didn’t like that as I grew
older and how it sounded like I was a Disney princess or
something. Eventually I grew more confident in myself
and I’d receive the remark “You slay” a lot at school
or wherever I was pretty much so a light bulb came
on in my head and said “My name is
going to be DreyaTheSlayya”. It’s
unique. Different. And it
truly fits me well.
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on releasing a freestyle on
June 20th called “I Know”.

OUT ON ALL PLATFORMS.
