Zebra Katz’ insanely catchy ‘Ima Read’ took the Paris runways by storm–and now the musician and his ‘Ima Read’ collaborator Njena Redd Foxxx are continuing their reign as fashion’s latest music muses, appearing in V‘s upcoming issue, fittingly titled Youth Quake.
In the magazine, the duo talk about how their collaboration came about, what we can look forward to in the future–plus they clear up (kind of) the confusing nature of their name. “People are spelling it with a C or putting an apostrophe on it, the whole thing is just a play on words,” Zebra told the magazine. Is it just us, or do we still not get the play on words happening?
He also set straight, once and for all, that Zebra Katz is a one-man show–however both he and Njena remain close and this summer Njena will be putting out her own single, Silly Bitch, on the same label that signed Zebra. “I wouldn’t say it’s an accident [that we're on the same label], but it’s serendipitous. What’s an accident anyway?” she says. “I’ll say this wasn’t planned for, but it’s feeling like it’s meant to be.”
As for who Zebra wishes to collaborate with in the future, the musician told the magazine:
“RuPaul and I are doing a show together, Reading University. Not really–But I’m putting that out into the universe. There are a lot of surprises that you can’t really talk about because it takes the fun out of the reveal.”
Please god, tell us he wasn’t kidding about RuPaul, after all.
