Early life[edit]

Carr grew up in Malibu, California. She has one older sister named Nicole.

Carr was a competitive tennis player, until an injury involving her back led her to be unable to play anymore.[2] “I was either going to become paralyzed and continue playing or stop and find a new destination for myself,” says Carr. Music was also a passion for Carr, “I was obsessed with music growing up. I had my walkman on 24/7. I would write lyrics and song titles all over my walls in sharpie. I was extremely consumed,” said Carr.

Career[edit]

2009–10: Career beginnings and Sex Sells Stay Tooned[edit]

Discovered at a Game concert, Carr volunteered to go on stage when host comedian Story Moyd, asked the audience if anyone could freestyle. The audience reacted positively to Carr, screaming “Go white girl”. Carr gained the attention of the audience, and various producers, including The Cataracs, who produced various songs for her. Carr released her debut single, “Back It Up” in 2009,[3] which quickly became a viral success. The music video, directed by Richie Mac, received more than 465,000 views on MTV Music networks MTVU channel, charting top 10 video of the week.[4] When Carr’s self-produced video, “Back It Up]]”, went to #1 at MTVU, it attracted the attention of Nick Cannon, who helped Colette release her debut mix tape, “Sex Sells Stay Tooned”” through his NCredible Entertainment label.[5]

In 2010, Carr released promotional single “Bitch Like Me”,[6] accompanied with video directed by Jonathan Singer-Vine, and her first mix-tape “Sex Sells Stay Tooned”, with over 100,000 downloads in its first few months.[7]

Interscope boss Jimmy Iovine signed Colette and sent her to the recording studio for her debut album,Skitszo, which produced the Billboard Dance hit, “Never Gonna Happen” and the Billboard Uncharted topper, “(We Do It) Primo“, working with producers such as RedOne (Lady Gaga).[8] The lead single, “(We Do It) Primo“, was released on May 11, 2011. It reached the number-one spot on Billboards Uncharted chart for artists whose music is primarily distributed online.[9] Carr was included on the CherryTree Pop Alternative Tour along with LMFAO, Far East Movement, Frankmusik, and Natalia Kills.

Carr released four digital EPs, “Skitszo” parts 1-4, which consisted of songs from her debut album that had been split into four. Carr’s debut album “Skitszo Collection” was released as a whole on July 9, 2013 through Interscope, which included parts 1-4 and four additional songs. “Never Gonna Happen” was the album’s fifth single, released on March 5, and a remix by Dave Aude appeared on Billboards Hot Dance Club Songs chart at #11.

Colette then released “HAM” featuring Ben J from Hip Hip duo New Boyz, co-written by Nate Walka and Jon Redwine, and produced by Marley Waters.[10] Carr released and premiered the music video for “HAM” on popular American radio personality, television host, and producer Ryan Seacrest‘s site RyanSeacrest.com on September 13, 2013.[11] Carr toured along with Huey Mack and Mayo on the “Pretending Perfection” tour and then toured for the “On The Rise” tour, along with Jake Miller, Becky G, T.
