Canada is producing a lot of talent at the moment, and NAV is no exception. He has already appeared with some huge artists, including the likes of Travis Scott and keeps the trend going by featuring The Weeknd on his new track Some Way.
The Weeknd, opens the track for NAV with his traditional yet unique melodic flow. All seems well and good until he sings “Most number ones, number ones in a n***a league, I think your girl, think your girl, fell in love with me, she say my f**k and tongue game a remedy”, which, sounds like shots being fired at Justin Bieber since The Weeknd is all but dating Selena Gomez.
Bieber referred to The Weeknd’s music as ‘wack’ so he should have been expecting backlash from Abel, but maybe not to the extent of talking about his ex in a song.
However, we should not let the petty shots reign over NAV’s first real single that is pure fire and shows how much talent the XO camp really has. Born and raised in Toronto, the rapper of Indian origin is not shy to point out “I’m the first brown boy to get it poppin’”. Props to him for it.
We’re unclear if NAV will have a bigger project to share with us this year, but if this is anything to go by, we have just have a new talent from Toronto.
Check out the tune below.
