At 19, Ayra Starr is reveling in her potentials, exerting control over a career that’s so young, worthy of recognition, accolades, and envy amongst the very best. A journey marked by remarkable feats and achievements. Wouldn’t be hasty and delusional if she’s referred to as the identity of an avid, young generation of music listeners who have latched on to her music that reverberates freedom, excitement, and will to live a life devoid of shackles and barriers.
With these characteristics, it is devastatingly wrong if she’s still referred to as “potential” waiting for a breakout, she proved to be an embodiment of delectable music with the release of her eponymous debut EP at the beginning of the year which garnered streams across platforms, tremendous numbers that quash the “Potential” threshold.
7 months after the release of the EP, she drops her first album titled “19 & Dangerous”, 11 track album that resonates with purpose, desire, and will, qualities synonymous with every music lover across different races and groups. “Bloody Samaritan”, the lead single from this compilation succinctly reveals her intention to pursue a dream against all odds with an attitude of a winner, a champion, maestro of her sound. An audacious album with two collaborations featuring Ckay on “Beggie Beggie”, a song centered on unrequited love, filled with melody and vocal tenacity, and US singer Foushee on “Snitch”.
Ayra Starr is ready to entrench her music, to be a symbol not just for Gen Z but for all music lovers.
