Sexxy Red, born Janae Nierah Wherry on April 15, 1998, grew up on the North Side of St. Louis with her single mother and sister. Despite the poverty she endured, she recalls having fun in the hood. It was there that her friends nicknamed her “Red” for her red-dyed hair.
Although she never intended for a career in music, an unexpected turn of events led her down that path. Sexyy got her start in the music industry after finding out her longtime boyfriend was cheating. She channeled her emotions into a diss track aimed at him and the girl he was being sneaky with. Surprisingly, when she played it for him, he not only embraced it but also urged her to record it again. She followed his advice, and the song gained traction among his circle of friends. Soon enough, more people started sharing the song around the city and it brought her additional popularity in St. Louis.
She started making appearances at clubs and local events, but her first real buzz beyond St. Louis came in 2018 with her rework of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles,” titled “Ah Thousand Jugs.” The lyrics were both catchy and humorous, causing it to rapidly go viral.
Sexxy Red never intended to take music seriously, but after her growing fan base pressured her, she began releasing new songs, including “Free Smoke,” “Twerk Crazy,” and “Chicken Chicken.”
Sexxy was booked and busy, and in 2022, she collaborated with Summer Walker on the controversial music video “Sense Dat God Gave You.” However, 2023 was when things really started popping off for Sexxy. Her breakthrough single “Pound Town” (with Tay Keith) was released in January it and changed her career and life trajectory forever. The song went viral due to its sexually suggestive lyrics and put Sexxy on the map, with fans and celebrities including Cardi B, SZA, Post Malone, and Trina posting videos of themselves listening to it.
Following her viral success, Sexxy capitalized on her momentum by releasing her debut mixtape, Hood Hottest Princess, in June, featuring the hit track “SkeeYee.”
Sexxy Red was an unstoppable force, and everyone wanted to ride her wave, including Drake, who reached out to her on Instagram. She officially joined the Canadian rapper on his It’s All a Blur Tour as an opening act, after having appeared as a guest at previous shows. In October, she collaborated with Drake and SZA on “Rich Baby Daddy” from Drake’s album For “All the Dogs.”
Now that she’s famous, Sexxy plans to explore other business opportunities to ensure her son’s comfortable future, such as starting a clothing and makeup line.
