Ayra Starr new single for 2023 “Sability“, produced by London is an Afropop record that will make you put on your dancing shoes and hit the dance floor. The song samples one of Awilo Longomba‘s hit records, so you already know what’s packaged for you.
Ayra describes her sound as Afrosoul, told in an intoxicating voice that evokes a Gen Z queen-in-waiting. Drawing from influences like classic Yoruba and Beninese music & artists like 2Face and Wande Coal, her music speaks for a generation of girls around the world who are finding themselves, united by angst and emojis.
Ayra Starr is impossible to ignore. Born in Benin Republic, the 20-year-old was raised between its beach city, Cotonou and the cultural hub of Lagos, Nigeria. This mix of cultures inspires her global approach to music, art and life. She’s inspired by the regal earthiness of Angelique Kidjo, Rihanna‘s feisty confidence, as well as 90s fashion icons, and the edgy aesthetic of emo-pop.
