Krys Evans Makes Her Dream A Reality With Sizzla Featured, “Over Everything”


There are some of us who believe in destiny, and making things happen. We may have visions, or we trust a higher power with our hopes and dreams, or we just put in the work to make them come true. Sometimes they manifest immediately, or they never happen, or they take a longer than usual time to unfold. For Queens, NY Recording Artist Krys Evans, she’s making her dreams a reality through her new single, “Over Everything“.

Produced by Dennis “Jah D” Fearon for JAHLEP Records, Krys Evans’ “Over Everything” single is a dream come true as she collaborates with one of her musical heroes, Reggae/Dancehall Icon Sizzla Kalonji. The song goes out to all the couples who have weathered many storms and faced numerous challenges, but are still strong together, inspiring others in the process. Krys and Sizzla share not only great vocals, but lyrics on what it takes for couples stay together, and making that relationship last. While many speak about “Relationship goals” on Social Media, it takes a lot of work, and two people who genuinely are about each other.

Growing up, I listened to a lot of Sizzla, and he has influenced the way I do music.” shared Krys Evans. “Years ago, I used to work as a Bartender at BB Kings (in New York), and Sizzla was a featured act one night. Although his appearance wasn’t during my shift, I traded shifts with a coworker just to witness his performance while I worked. Fast forward a few years, I had this song, and it needed a male Artist who would take it to the next level. In my head, I wanted Sizzla to be that guest feature, and I wasn’t gonna let this song go until it happened. We made it happen however, and it’s a blessing! I’m eternally grateful to Sizzla Kalonji and his team.” “Over Everything” is Krys’ first release since her debut album, “Resilient” in 2020, and will be following up the single with a music video in the coming weeks. A Dancehall single titled, “Get The Money” is set to follow the single later this year. Keep working on your dreams.
