K/DA exploded into the music scene with their hit song “POP/STARS.” Fans of K/DA can't get enough of their unconventional flair, from the trademark tails (which fans suspect are real) to otherworldly decor in their studio. “Our songs are for you to remember—-always be true to yourself,” says lead singer Ahri. K/DA hopes to take their music around the world in a global tour.

K/DA is also a virtual band in real-life comprised of League of Legends champions which are performed by musicians such as: Bea Miller, Jaira Burns, Madison Beer, Miyeon, Soyeon, and Wolftyla. Each member of the band has a skin corresponding to their K/DA alter-ego (with Evelynn and Kai'Sa having two different artists), which is styled after modern pop music.[1]
