About Natalia Kills
Born in 1986, Natalia Cappuccini (Natalia Kills) is a multi-talented entertainer and designer from Bradford, West Yorkshire. Influenced by Kate Bush and Alanis Morissette, she came on the scene in 2005 with a hip-hop electronic sound. Her music resembles the styles of Lady Gaga, Neon Hitch, and Marina & the Diamonds. Associated acts include Akon, Far East Movement, and Afrojack.
Kills spent the 1990s in a reoccurring state of despair. Her parents came from different heritages and struggled finding an appropriate social setting. As a result, Kills lived in England, Spain, and Jamaica as a child. In 1999, her father got thrown in prison for reasons that are publicly unknown. To escape this environment, she began acting and received some important roles at a young age. A bad home life forced Kills to run away at the age of 14. Upon her departure, she decided to forget about acting and pursue other endeavors.
In 2005, she inked her first record deal and began recording. Shortly after, she dropped her first single “Don’t Play Nice.” The song didn’t receive much attention, yet, put her on the industry map. She left the small company and released her independent single “Womannequin.” The unsolicited song became a success and gained the attention of music legends Justin Timberlake and Akon. Afterwards, she signed with Will I Am Records and moved to Los Angeles with no money. Kills admits to doing things she regrets in order to survive these hard times.
After spending a few tough years recording and surviving, Kills dropped her first album, Perfectionist in 2011. The record received modest success and earned her supporting roles on major tours. Kills accompanied Katy Perry and The Black Eyed Peas on their 2011 roadshows. Afterwards, she joined with LMFAO and Far East Movement on a musical collaboration.
In 2013, Kills dropped her matured album, Trouble. The record featured collaborations with hit artist Eminem, Kid Cudi, and many more. It received both critical and commercial success and furthered the popularity of the artist. She followed by touring and appearing in several hit magazines including Teen Vogue and LadyGun. Kills spent the rest of year, and the beginning of 2014 appearing in commercials and working on collaborations. She is currently in the studio working on a joint effort with Madonna.
