Montreal-based Ethiopian rapper Naya Ali burst onto the Canadian Hip-Hop scene in 2017 and does not hide her international ambitions. Quickly noticed for her flamboyant personality and unparalleled flow, the artist is able to transport us from scathing world sometimes dark, sometimes quieter, but always uncompromising.
Since the release of her first EP “Higher Self”, the emerging artist has drawn looks and attention from several media and some major hip-hop players, even abroad. With the release of the first part of her debut album “Godspeed: Baptism (prelude)” in March 2020, Naya Ali is once again making great fuss and proving that she has nothing to envy American household names.
Patience... the second part of the album is expected in spring 2021
After dropping her album, Godspeed Baptism (Prelude) earlier this year, Naya Ali closes out the year on a grand note with the visuals for her song “Air Ali.” The title which is a nod to the greatest basketball player sees Ali in her element as she delivers a smooth melody laced performance draped in her authentic style. She lets everyone know that she is not a run of a mill artist and puts her foot down on the opposition over the booming trap backdrop that beefs up her unapologetic lyrics.
The visual is expressive and plays into the theme of the song of leaving the past and restraints behind. The use of various set pieces and performance shots of people playing basketball, airplanes, and color-coordinated shots sure add to the engaging element and show Ali’s next move beyond the skies.
