NIGERIAN-BORN ARTIST AY UNLEASHES EMOTIVE TRACK "MEAN IT"


Nigerian-born and Leicester-based actor and vocalist AY unveils his latest emotive track, "Mean It."

Delving into the vigorous lifestyle and ambitions of inner-city youth culture, "Mean It" is a sonic journey featuring dark piano licks and spacey vocals, providing an infectious foundation of trap textures. Utilising his backdrop to deliver smart and intricate wordplay, AY explores themes of love, growth, and development.



Accompanying the track is an intimate music video that captures scenes between the roads and delves into a complex love interest. The visuals vividly portray AY's affinities and the influences that can divert focus from his vision for success, offering a testament to his dedication as an artist breaking into wider consciousness.


Earning his stripes with independent releases, including the incendiary cut "HIGH" featured on GRM DAILY. He garnered attention and built affiliations with grime legend Skepta through his label Big Smoke Records. From there, he made his acting debut in Skepta's "Tribal Mark," a nationwide hit portraying the challenges faced by a Nigerian immigrant adapting to a new culture in London.


With "Mean It" as a compelling introduction, AY promises a plethora of releases, showcasing his unique talent and further solidifying his place as a rising star in the music scene.
