Hip-hop duo Kalin White and Myles Parrish, better known as Kalin and Myles, burst onto the scene back in 2011. They first met at a Bay Area house party and then crossed paths again at a movie showing of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (Beliebers unite!). After coming to the realization that they both share a common interest in music, the two decided to collaborate and create music together.
The self-titled album consists of 12 tracks including their hit songs “Brokenhearted” and “Take My Time” featuring Kool John (The HBK Gang). The record has a diverse mixture of fun, upbeat tunes that will make you want to bust a move (or two). Along with catchy lyrics and their signature sound of harmonizing instruments, this album will make you think twice about what defines “pop music.”

Change My Life

It has the perfect combination of hip-hop and jazz which makes for a refreshingly fun, love song!
Out My Mind

This is the song that everyone will be requesting the DJ to play over and over. It’s amusing, it’s catchy, it’s everything a good club song needs plus much more!
Hands All Over
“Hands All Over” pays homage to the iconic tune “Knockin Boots” by Candy Man from possibly the best era yet: the 90s! The famous verse “Ooh girl, I love you so…” has been featured in many songs of its kind and these two definitely do it justice. Kalin and Myles created a modern track with an upbeat tempo that everyone can groove to. Ain’t no fun like the 90s!
Do What You Do
In this uplifting melody, the boys slow it down and bring a Macklemore meets Childish Gambino feel to it. The witty lyrics paired with a chill, smooth beat will have girls coming to the realization that you deserves a man who doesn’t compare you to the unrealistic features of a model. In the wise words of Kalin and Myles, “do what you do.”
