Africa’s fastest-rising new music star, Ayra Starr, is out with her savage new single Bloody Samaritan.
The blazing rhythmic dance track – underpinned by percussive drums and a hypnotic horn section – is the first taste of her forthcoming debut album “19 & Dangerous”, which is out next Friday 6 August via Mavin Records/Platoon.
Co-written by Ayra Starr and produced by London, this searing anthem bristles with self-confidence as the Gen Z rising star banishes negative energy. She boasts, “I see you watching my stories, I see you gauging my lifestyle, I see you watching my movement, this bad bitch bad every day.”
In a social media age where public scrutiny is amplified, Bloody Samaritan is a life-affirming reminder to protect our peace and to always big up ourselves.
Ayra Starr shares: “I love this track because I was unapologetic and assertive on it – something people my age often struggle to be, and I want my fans to feel that way when they listen to it, liberated of societal standards and expectations.”
