Slayyyter has the audacity and then some. Her ferocious new single “Self Destruct” signals the dawning of a new era for the self-made popstar, one who isn’t afraid to raise some hell.
Growing up in the suburbs of St. Louis, Slayyyter worshipped pop culture from afar, a devout acolyte of such top 40 stalwarts as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga. She realized early on that if she was ever going to hear the music of her dreams, she’d have to make it herself. After dropping out of the University of Missouri, she began to record music in her bedroom as Slayyyter, a pseudonym she borrowed from her favorite Dazed and Confused character. Her debut single “BFF,” a collaboration with Ayesha Erotica, was written in between her shifts as a receptionist at a hair salon.
