Mavin Records songstress, Ayra Starr has revealed that she wrote some of the songs in her upcoming debut album while in a hospital hallway.
The 19-year-old songstress is preparing to unveil her 11-track debut album titled ’19 & Dangerous’ this Friday, August 6, 2021.
As anticipation builds towards the album release date, Ayra Starr reveals she wrote some of the songs in 2019 – in hospital, at a time her father was in a coma.
Apparently, she turned to music writing as therapy – due to the hard time she was going through – seeing her father in a coma.
“Some of the songs on my album I wrote in a hospital hallway while my dad was in a coma 2019, music is my life and it is therapy for me and I hope my music helps you the way it helped me,” Ayra Starr posted on her official Twitter handle.
This is the second time the singer has disclosed turning to music amid challenges in her life. During her college years, she was often bullied by her classmates because of her appearance and as a way to counter the feelings she experienced from being taunted, she turned to music.
"I would listen to Nicki Minaj on my way to school, and I’d feel like the second Nicki Minaj,” Ayra Starr notes in a past interview quoted by Wikipedia.
Ayra Starr recently released the first single off the 19 & Dangerous album which she has titled ‘Bloody Samaritan’. The single produced by London sees the singer talk about the importance of doing away and avoiding negative energy.
