GEN F: A*M*E
Seventeen-year-old Amy Kabba paces the stage of an East London dive in short-shorts and vertiginous ankle boots, working the crowd to perfection with perky between-song banter and a swagger that could fill arenas. Running through her set, which includes the Jamaican-inflected, booty-winding hooks of “Ride or Die” and the two-step-influenced summer jam, “Find a Boy,” she stirs a melting pot of pop. Kabba, who performs as A*M*E, knows her songs are good—a track she co-wrote debuted at number one in Korea, care of K-pop girl group f(x)—and with a T-Pain collaboration already in the can, she has her sights set on chart conquests of her own.
