Albums[edit]

After releasing singles during the early 2010s under Brilliance Records, Gunnufsen debuted her studio album on Brilliance, Faen Kaja, on March 7, 2014. The album went on to be named the fourth best album of the year[2] by Dagbladet.

Personal life[edit]

Gunnufsen is from Ås, Norway, and was born in 1988.[3]

Controversy[edit]

Gunnufsen's debut album title, which can be translated to variations of "Fuck Kaja" or "Damn Kaja", brought controversy from Facebook in 2014 when the social network prohibited the album's promotion on the site due to the site's policy against vulgar language.[4]
