Ayra Starr and Seyi Vibez Unite Say No To “Bad Vibes” 

GRAMMY-nominated global Afrobeats superstar Ayra Starr unleashes her poignant new single “Bad Vibes” feat. Seyi Vibez – out now via Mavin Records. Listen HERE. The song follows her feel-good anthem “Commas,” which exceeded 100 million streams across all platforms in just two month. Both tracks will be featured on Ayra Starr’s much-anticipated new album The Year I Turned 21, which is out on May 31.

Arriving ahead of the new album, “Bad Vibes” showcases Ayra Starr’s wise and mature nature alongside her signature, self-assured Afrobeats roots. Produced by Mystro, and featuring renowned Nigerian wordsmith Seyi Vibez, “Bad Vibes” hears Ayra Starr contemplating the pressures that come with success, and doubling down on her commitment to protecting her energy from “bad vibes.” Spotlighting Ayra Starr’s contemplative and introspective lyricism, “gave me the world but it’s heavy on my palms,” backdropped to an ethereal, smooth rhythm, Ayra Starr soars across the cosmos, shaking off the “bad vibes” of those coming into her orbit.

The forthcoming album The Year I Turned 21 is Ayra Starr’s coming of age record, showcasing her most personal storytelling, alongside infectious empowering anthems. Themes of growth, love, heartbreak and realising your power permeate the record, powered by a newfound artistic maturity that came from the whirlwind year the Gen Z singer-songwriter has had.

Following the release of her defining debut album 19 & Dangerous featuring the GRAMMY-nominated global hit “Rush,” Ayra Starr embarked on her first sold-out headline world tour in 2023, which spanned North America, Europe, Africa and Australia. The London show earned praise from The Guardian, which stated: “[The] West African star underlines her superstar potential… despite her age, she has a substantial and varied catalogue, allowing multiple energies and vibes to seamlessly coexist here.”

All the while, the numbers keep climbing with 19 & Dangerous now sitting at a staggering 500 million streams. Ayra Starr’s position as Africa’s hottest star saw her pick up her first GRAMMY nomination, making BBC’s Sound of 2024 list, and being nominated for MOBO Awards’ Best African Music Act for the second time.

She has collaborated with some of music’s biggest names including Wizkid, Stormzy, David Guetta, Kelly Rowland, Tiwa Savage, Aya Nakamura, Leigh-Anne and recently, marked her first Latin music collaboration – ‘Santa’ with Rvssian and Rauw Alejandro which has made it’s Billboard hot 100 entry.
