Rapper Naya Ali Releases “Godspeed: Baptism” Album

After bursting onto the hip-hop scene with her last EP Higher Self, Naya Ali, the Montreal-based rapper of Ethiopian origin, is back with her much-anticipated debut album Godspeed: Baptism (prelude). This LP will be released in two parts, with this being the first of the double release“I feel like I’ve been waiting all my life to be reborn,” says Naya Ali, who was just crowned the Anglophone Musical Artist of the Year at the 2020 Dynasty Gala. This first chapter of the album marks the beginning of a new life, a baptism, as Naya immerses the listener into a much more personal universe; at times dark, at other times vulnerable and luminous, but always uncompromising. As raw, honest and punchy as ever, Naya explores more sonic territories, more layers, more musicality, more melodies, this time using her voice more as an instrument. As the musical accolades pour in – she was a Top 10 finalist at CBC Music Searchlight 2020 – without the shadow of a doubt, Naya will undoubtedly leave her mark on hip-hop culture at home and abroad.

Rising Montreal Rapper Naya Ali Unveils Her New Video “Get It Right”

Rising Ethiopian-born Montreal rapper Naya Ali  has enjoyed her biggest summer tour run thus far in her young career, which has seen her performing at some of Canada’s biggest festivals including Canadian Music Week, NXNE, FEQ 2019, and Osheaga Festival, with further performance stops at Festival de Musique Émergente, Up Here Festival and OUMF 2019, among others. Naya Ali  is excited to finally unveil the captivating new music video for her latest single “Get It Right” that premiered with the UK’s Clash Magazine 

At last year’s MURAL Festival, Naya opened for Pusha T and Playboi Carti, and this month she became the first female rapper and the only Anglo rapper from Quebec to perform at Osheaga Festival, headlined by Childish Gambino and Janelle Monae. Signed to Coyote Records/Universal Music, Naya Ali’s 2018 track “Ready To Go” has over 15 million views on YouTube as part of Parks Canada’s “Memories Await You” campaign. Recalling the inspiration behind the “Get It Right” video, Naya says: “The visuals are about breaking free from the ‘sunken place’. I felt like I was trapped for so long in a state of mind that had me forget who I really was, so I had to break free and escape by killing a part of myself that I had outgrown. The dark and symbolic visual is a Kanye-esque canvas, inspired by Stanley Kubrick meets Jordan Peele”.

The “Get It Right” single sees Naya Ali collaborating with the Parlophone Records signed production duo Banx & Ranx, who are having a breakout year of their own, to deliver an undeniable rap offering that sets Naya apart. Having previously worked with the likes of Dua Lipa, Sean Paul, Jhene Aiko, Yxng Bane, and Lady Leshurr, Banx & Ranx have also sold over one million copies of their massive hit single “Answerphone”. Naya is now currently working on her debut album Godspeed, which is set for release in February 2020.
