Afropop diva Ayra Starr enlists Kelly Rowland for a remix of her “Bloody Samaritan” single. Starr’s song blew up on Tik Tok and made Rowland a fan before their collaboration. The remix will be included on Starr’s 19 & Dangerous deluxe edition. The Nigerian singer said: “I’ve always been a huge fan of Kelly Rowland and when this came up, I could barely keep in the excitement! While recording this, Kelly made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, something I really appreciate. She was super amazing! and I was able to hold my own alongside a legend and I can’t wait to share this new music with you all!”
Starr’s rise has been quick considering her start with an original song posted on Instagram in 2019 which led to her deal with the Mavin label. By 2021 her self-titled EP produced the viral single “Away.” Later in the year, she would release 19 & Dangerous with “Bloody Samaritan” as the lead single. The song made her the first solo woman singer to have a number one hit in Nigeria. The newer version has more heat with the addition of Rowland’s boldness. The deluxe edition of 19 & Dangerous comes out on October 14th.
