The Mavin Records Nigerian singer shares the 16-track deluxe project featuring Kelly Rowland, Lojay, Zinoleesky, CKay, and more.
The deluxe edition of Ayra Starr's 19 & Dangerous album, which includes six additional songs and a remix of her smash hit "Bloody Samaritan" with R&B legend Kelly Rowland, has been officially released. The original release of 19 & Dangerous back in August 2021 received critical acclaim, placing her name on the main stage of the afrobeats scene, and landing her two top forty hits on the Nigerian music charts.
Even though she is still relatively new to the music industry, Ayra Starr has continued to push the boundaries. Her distinctively soulful voice, along with the profundity and delivery of her lyrics, have quickly established her as a talent to watch. The singer, who was born in Cotonou, has been making a name for herself in the music industry and is one of the African musicians who are starting to gain international recognition.
Ayra Starr was recently named Spotify's newest RADAR Global artist. This initiative has helped to advance the careers of up-and-coming musicians by giving them the opportunity to connect with a global audience. The 20-year-old supported Cardi B earlier this year when she made her U.K. debut at Wireless Festival. Later, she accompanied Koffee on her 24-date U.S. tour through Miami, New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, and other cities. The singer's most recent release appears to be pleasing fans so far.
The most recent musical release from Ayra Starr includes songs that she and her brother Milar both wrote and co-wrote. She also worked with some of the most innovative and well-known producers in afrobeats, such as Don Jazzy of Mavin Records, London, and Louddaaa.
Ayra Starr continues to show her versatility with the new additions to the project by skillfully blending Afro-pop, R&B, dancehall, trap, and alté styles to produce a distinctive sound that has come to be uniquely her own. Collaborations with numerous other musicians, including Kelly Rowland, CKay, Lojay, Zinoleesky, Foushée, Kilo & Yseult, and Zinoleesky, are included on the Deluxe album.
