London-based artist NAYANA IZ drops captivating new single “partner in crime”, alongside a music video directed by Sekou Abineri which focuses on dual heritage, and dual personalities.
Raised in North London by Indian parents, NAYANA IZ’s persona was born from the sacrifices they made migrating to a foreign country— enduring effects that define a life residing between cultures. She’s back with another captivating release titled “partner in crime”, which follows on from her acclaimed debut EP SMOKE & FLY. The track itself is built over a compelling production which seamlessly matches with NAYANA’s alluring rap-sung vocals. Combining old school hip-hop vibes thanks to its jazz undertones with a contemporary sound, “partner in crime” is a captivating song with replay value, and one which will place her in a list of artists to watch in 2021.
‘”Partner In Crime’ is about that person you trust most even if that person might be yourself. It’s my appreciation for the love we’ve shared and a reminder to them that I always got their back. We’ve been betrayed and hurt before but we know we always got each other through all the pains and all the wins. This is a celebration of us and how far we’ve come, we did it” — NAYANA IZ.
