Ayra Starr taps Kelly Rowland to re-heat Bloody Samaritan
Mavin Records’ first lady, Ayra Starr, has tag-teamed the Grammy-winning chanteuse, Kelly Rowland, for a remix of her smash hit, Bloody Samaritan. The collaboration, alongside the new single Rush, both appear on the highly-anticipated Deluxe Edition of Ayra Starr’s 19 & Dangerous album, which would be out on October 14.
The original version of Bloody Samaritan has amassed over 60 million TikTok views. It exposed the Beninese-Nigerian singer to a crowd of international fans including Rowland, who posted an Instagram video of her vibing to the song last year.
Ayra Starr said: “I’ve always been a huge fan of Kelly Rowland and when this came up, I could barely keep in the excitement! While recording this, Kelly made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, something I really appreciate. She was super amazing! And I was able to hold my own alongside a legend and I can’t wait to share this new music with you all!”
The 20-year-old singer-songwriter is rapidly blazing her own path toward global domination. As Spotify’s latest RADAR Global artist, Ayra Starr takes her career to new heights. She joins more than 500 other artists on the program.
This year has also seen Ayra Starr make her UK live debut at Wireless Festival, supporting Cardi B, and touring the United States supporting Koffee.
