The Grammy-nominated singer has been building excitement all year. In January, she teased fans with hints of the album on Beat 99.9fm’s “The Morning Rush” and dropped the lead single, “Commas,” in February. This empowering anthem, nominated for a BET Her award, urges those facing rejection to keep striving for success. “Commas” was followed by another hit, “Bad Vibes,” featuring Seyi Vibez.

Following the success of her debut album “19 and Dangerous,” which included chart-topping songs like “Away,” “Rush,” and “Bloody Samaritan,” Ayra Starr returns with an album that showcases her artistic growth and maturity. Her debut earned her a Grammy nomination for Best African Music Performance, making her the youngest Nigerian female artist to be nominated in that category.

“The Year I Turned 21” features collaborations with Asake, Giveon, Coco Jones, Anitta, Rvssian, and Rauw Alejandro on tracks like “Goodbye (Warm Up),” “Last Heartbreak Song,” “Woman Commando,” and “Santa.” The album also includes the previously released “Commas” and “Bad Vibes.”

Ayra Starr has recently surpassed 30 million monthly listeners on Spotify, cementing her status as one of Africa’s most streamed artists. With impressive collaborations and a celebration of her journey, Ayra Starr proves she’s a force to be reckoned with in the global music scene. “The Year I Turned 21” is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates good music.
