Ayra Starr who released her new album in February called Commas spoke on her expressive musical style that has helped her craft a niche in the music industry.

The album already has over 35 million streams on Spotify.

In this interview, she also talks about what it means to her to be a Spotify EQUAL artist. 

“I am grateful to become a Spotify EQUAL Ambassador. It means so much to me to be able to represent women in Afrobeats and African women in general. There are so many women in music right now and the EQUAL program is doing a great job in highlighting their hard work.”

How is the Spotify EQUAL program significant, from your perspective? 

There are so many women in music today, behind the scenes, in front of the camera, musicians, sound engineers, all these women working hard and Spotify EQUAL is doing a great job in highlighting all their hard work. 

What does this mean to you as a person, being Spotify’s EQUAL artist for the month both from an African and Global perspective? 

It means everything to me because I am a girl and I have to support my gender and level the playing field.

To someone who has never heard your music, how would you describe the sound, tone, and style?

I would describe my sound as highly vibrational, eccentric, unique, and beautiful.

Are we expecting any music from you anytime soon? 

Yes. I have a new single with Seyi Vibes called ‘Bad Vibes’ and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. It’s amazing and it’s one of those songs that makes you feel good. The best part about it is that it is not just a regular Afrobeat record, it’s like genres intertwined.
