“When people speak about Ayra Starr in the industry, many of us see her as the new Rihanna. Because she comes with a vibe that is very specific because of where she’s coming from. But she has the potential of crossing over into different cultures,” he said.

“Since we recorded, she has had even more hits. It’s crazy. I’m French. I was in Paris and everyone was talking about her. I was shocked like, ‘This is amazing. An African artist that’s killing it in Europe, killing it in the U.S., it’s not every day. Last time I saw it was working with Akon.’”
