Submitted by on April 25, 2010 – 4:15 pm6 Comments

Some say success is a journey and not a destination. This holds true for an aspiring singer or songwriter who’s been waiting to shine. Kiley Dean was born in the small town of Alma, Arkansas. At age three she began singing in the church choir. When she was eight, her family moved to Orlando, Florida. Kiley’s big break came as a teenager when she joined the then new pop phenom Britney Spears for the “Hit Me Baby One More Time” tour. After the tour, Kiley signed to Timbaland’s short-lived Beat Club Records, recording two albums that were never released.

Kiley then joined Matthew Knowles‘ Music World Entertainment. After a few years on the label she was released from there as well.

Things improved in 2007 when Madonna personally requested Kiley to be a backup dancer for the “Sticky & Sweet Tour.” She toured around the world with the Queen of Pop for two years. Madonna fan page sites went crazy as Kiley was the first blond backup singer to tour with the pop icon.

During her time between labels and being off tour, Kiley has amassed over 160 tracks in her recording catalog and has worked with Tricky Stewart, Timbaland, The Underdogs and Ron Fair.

Recently Kiley remixed Drake’s “Say Something” and shot a video:
