Saiyr is an American social media star, singer, songwriter, TV personality, and dancer, best known as 1/3 of the all-sibling R&B, soul, and hip-hop/rap band Ceraadi starting on July 2013. She and her 2 sisters, Emaza and Znuie, formed the band together and began uploading tracks to the SoundCloud platform in late 2014. In 2015, they released their debut single, What Ever, closely followed by the 2nd, titled Favorite Song at the end of the year. The year of 2016 saw the release of their 3rd song, That’s Bae, but it wasn’t until the next year that their band gained a lot of prominence for their single We In Here. The band also received the wrong kind of attention after Znuie, the 3rd sister, ran away from their family home and was pronounced missing. However, she quickly updated her social media stating that she left the band and wanted her part of the money she earned because her mom took it. After her fanbase and family had proof that she was safe but gone from the band, Emaza and Saiyr continued making music as Ceraadi, temporarily joined by their younger brother, Rsieh-Raxan.
Saiyr, as part of the new formation of Ceraadi, released singles Kung Pao and Active in 2018, and Sway and Loyal in 2019. In addition, the band also uploaded song covers of tracks such as I Do by Cardi B ft. SZA (2018), Boo’d Up (2018), and No Guidance (2019). On the YouTube channel dedicated to the band, which has amassed more than 1.5 million subscribers and more than 36 million views, Saiyr also uploads dancing tutorials, fashion hauls, and vlogs. After 2018, they started to include content such as reactions, storytime, Q&A, behind-the-scenes, challenges, pranks, their makeup and skin routines, and also unique playlists specifically made for different occasions. Her personal channel is almost entirely dedicated to her gym workouts, personal stories and experiences, reactions, and vlogs. Saiyr has also amassed a large fanbase online with more than 700k followers on Instagram and more than 200k subscribers on YouTube.
