Rising Music Sensation, Ayra Starr recently released her debut album, 19 & dangerous, but revealed in a recent interview that her label didn’t want to release it until she took action.
In a new interview with Beat FM, Ayra Starr reveals that she had to create PowerPoint slides and stage a presentation to show the label that she was album ready. The interview aired on Wednesday, August 18, 2021.
Ayra Starr was on the Midday Show with Beat FM’s Nadine, who was curious about what happened in the run-up to the album’s release.
She explained that she came up with the album title two years ago and decided it was time to release it when she turned 19. Everyone thought she was too young to release an album, so Ayra Starr had to think outside the box.
“So I knew this album was going to be 19 & Dangerous like two years ago. So this year when I clocked 19, I was like okay, I want an album.
Everybody was saying it was too fast and too early to drop an album. So I made like a PowerPoint presentation for my record label. Because I felt like I was recording songs that just had like a message. I was recording a body of work without even knowing I was recording a body of work.”
