Crystal Chyna is a R&B group out of the Crenshaw District in Los Angeles, California. One thing, out of many, that makes them unique is that they are identical twins!! Their music reminds you of the 90’s – good times and good memories. Definitely check them out on social media and on music platforms using the links down below!
You might think that being in a group with your siblings can be a little tricky or even frustrating, so we asked, “How is it being in a group with your sister?”
Their response was the complete opposite they stated, “Being in a group as sisters is the absolute best! We guess it’s because of the “twin thing,” but we’re always able to sense when one of us may need help during a live performance or just have each other’s backs in general. We’re literally inseparable!”
When did you all decide that you all wanted to be a group?
Any talent competition growing up, we did our routines together. We didn’t pair up with friends, it was all us. When we were 14, I (Chrystal) woke up Chyna and decided that we needed to get a vocal coach. I knew that it was time to pursue it professionally and begin with extensive training.
Being an identical twin can be a little tricky to outsiders on the regular, but there are very few in the music industry especially as a duo. So I asked, “do you guys ever get mixed up in the industry?”
If you’re referring to mixed up as far as who is who, oh, absolutely! It’s funny actually because we have to remember that people aren’t used to seeing twins regularly, so it throws them off guard. It’s completely understandable.
“No Pressure” is a great song down to the relatable lyrics, the melody, and I even love the music video. The early 2000s theme was definitely executed but I was curious as to “What was the inspiration behind “No Pressure?”
Chrystal and Chyna said ,”The inspiration behind “No Pressure” was simply drawn from us dating and being young women. With us still being young and trying to establish ourselves, we find that when dating, you may like someone but you don’t want to add pressure of there being a title so quickly. The gist of it is having feelings that are mutual with a person, but understanding that there’s no pressure for anything more.”
Has being from Los Angeles shaped your sound at all?
Definitely. We’re from the Crenshaw District and we’re extremely influenced by the old school music that was heavily played in our neighborhood or by our family members.
With 2019 being over in a few short months I wanted to know “What are some 2020 goals?”
An EP, visuals for every record on the EP, and a healthier body and mind.
What’s one thing your fans don’t know about you, but they should?
We can throw down in the kitchen! And we’re the best hosts, so if you ever come over, you’re in for treats.
Do you have any upcoming projects?
Our debut EP and a few performances to be announced!
What is your favorite part of being an artist?
We love being able to express ourselves the way we want to. Having the opportunity to create through our own lyrics and experimenting with different vocal techniques is like no other.
Growing up who did you all look up to?
Brandy! She was and still is everything to us. We saw ourselves, as little chocolate girls in her. Beyoncé as well. We try to model our work ethic after hers. Of course, we had first hand role models such as our Godmommy (Natalie Cole) and our Auntie (Chaka Khan).
“NO PRESSURE” is available on all streaming platforms!
