Jordyn Woods has moved completely on from her days of hanging with the Kardashian/Jenner clan. The former bestie to Kylie Jenner is now looking to show the world her vocal capabilities, showcasing her musical talents recently as the Kangaroo on “The Masked Singer.”
Woods revealed that she is planning to release an album which she refers to as her “passion project.”
“I have not been able to get to the studio. But as soon as everything clears up and we can leave again and I can get to the studio, that is as soon as you guys will get [an album],” she confirmed to “ET.” “Hopefully before the end of 2020. And I’m talking, like, as soon as possible.”
Woods also opened up to PEOPLE about wanting to show others what her talent was since she is often asked about what it is that she does.
“I definitely don’t think people thought I could sing, but everyone has their opinion. Sometimes people [are] like, ‘What is her talent?’ You can be an influencer, I’ve filmed movies and I have my own businesses, but people are still like, ‘Okay, so what’s your talent?’ As if entrepreneurship isn’t enough. I wanted to show people a different side of me that even I didn’t know existed before doing the show.”
Woods made it to the top eight on “The Masked Singer” before she was eliminated.
“I wish I made it to the finale. I probably would have done a few more upbeat songs or something that I could add a little more choreography to. I think that my next song was going to be ‘All the Stars’ by SZA and Kendrick Lamar. I would’ve loved to do that ’cause I was gonna rap a little bit.”
While music is on her mind, she is in no rush to sign with a major label, preferring the independent route for now.
“I’m going to most likely start my own label and be signed under myself rather than going to a label,” she said.
Woods says that her lifelong friend Jaden Smith has motivated her to take her music seriously.
“Jaden’s been one of my biggest motivators from the beginning,” she said. “Last year, when I was just in the house, I started writing and teaching myself how to play the piano and he’s one of the first people that was like, ‘Jordyn, where’s the album?’ And this was before I even went on the show or anything.”
Are we excited to hear some new heat from Jordyn?
