On her debut ’19 and Dangerous,’ Ayra Starr simply demonstrated her artistic flexibility and expansion.
First and foremost, I’d want to congratulate Ayra Starr on his artistic variety and journey thus far toward his debut studio album, “19 and Dangerous”
I’m impressed by her focus and presence of mind in stretching herself through popularity and anchoring it all on sustainable art; the appropriate way to use fame is to use it as a source of output.
This album is merely an artiste of Ayra Starr‘s incredible skill, this album seemed to have been unplanned, but it became a no-brainer because she had an abundance of cohesive, quality tracks, and the ‘Ayra Starr EP’ served as a solid basis.
Ayra Starr’s hunt for thirst and hunger for greatness necessitates progress and mastery within a short period of time spent composing music, the courage to release an album is admirable; the direction and selection of features are near-perfect, and seeking the help of others is laudable.
Also, at a point, I was wowed and had to run back to confirm, I assumed I was listening to a chanteuse like Rihanna, she explores the pure R&B genre, incorporating indigenous influences from artistic maturity and inclination.
Ayra Starr shines brightly and eulogizes on love, fashion, heartbreak, emotional instability, toxic love affairs, haphazard coping strategies, blissful decadence, ignorance, beauty, and the enticing innocence of youth are only a few of these elements.
The words, tune, and overall delivery look to be quite intentional on an 11-track album that is sonically aimed towards self-expression with lyrical lessons takeout.
Bloody Samaritan as a single is connected so effortlessly and sync with laidback vocal lining singing about self-love and appraisal.
In ‘Fashion Killer‘ it strikes an ascending sound that encapsulates one’s attention with great ballads, the London produced fast tempo beat imbibe potentiality in alternative Afropop and pop dynamism, closely followed by addictive adlibs similar to Rihanna‘s with an undeniably remarkable vocal type of a fellow Nigerian artist Tems.
She talks about fashion dominance and lifestyle braggadocio which always captivate listeners unconsciously.
On ‘Lonely’ Ayra Starr talks about heartbreak and unreciprocated love towards a love affair and highlights her feelings towards the hurt, also, the enchanting melodies prepare a mind on the theme of the song with the lyrics ‘i be human being oo’
‘Snitch’ seems to be the best song in the album in regard to the opinion of the writer but still hardly not easy to dissect the best as most songs are powerfully composed and directed.
