It’s All In The Name On In The Mix With HK

This week it’s all about the name on In The Mix With HK.

Being a pop star isn’t just about hits and talent. It has a lot to do with image and that includes the artist’s name. If you are the next Katy Perry and your name is unattractive, dull, difficult to pronounce, unintentionally amusing or just plain…”What were your parents thinking?” – You may want to get a hipper name.

Would Onika Maraj have sold over 5 million albums globally if she hand’t become Nicki Minaj? Would Avicii be as cool as Tim Bergling and let’s all agree Lady Germonotta just doesn’t have the same ring as Lady Gaga. Jason Derulo was fine with his first name but I’m so glad he didn’t go with his last given name of Desrouleaux. My tongue is in a knot just thinking about it.

Stage names are a part of the star package, but how do you go about getting your new power name? Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O’Connor says she was into royals and aristocracy since she was a kid and thought Lord was super rad but too masculine. So, she put an “e” on the end of it.

What would your stage name be? Hit me up on Facebook or Twitter and you could win cool HK swag!

This Friday and Saturday night at 10pm on In The Mix with HK™ I’m gonna avoid getting lost in the name game and opt to take you on a musical journey instead. Tune in to hear my custom tasty nuggets on The Neighbourhood – “Sweater Weather”, Lady Gaga – “Applause”, Katy Perry – “Roar”, Zedd & Haley Williams – “Stay The Night” and the brand new banger from Travie McCoy & Jason Mraz – “Rough Water”. You’ll need plenty of fresh water to cool down after I burn up the floor with new fresh takes on Eminem, Rihanna, One Republic, John Newman, Bruno Mars, Miley Cyrus and Cash Cash feat. Bebe Rexha.

There’s plenty of bangin’ beats and fresh remixes to go around so bring the gang and don’t miss a single second of my commercial free music sets. It’s all your faves like you’ve never heard them before!

Remember…if it’s hot, if it’s new and it makes you wanna move…you’re In The Mix with HK.
