It’s US rapper Nav’s first stay at the ROTW (Record of the Week) but this will be Lil Uzi’s fourth feature on it having had a successful two time run with his own singles and once on Migos’s ‘Bad and Boujee’.
Complex magazine dubbed him, ‘first brown boy to get it poppin’, describing him as ‘brown’ presumably due to his Indian descent and one striking thing about him is his close resemblance to DJ Khaled. Am I wrong?
Khaled actually co-produced this ROTW (Wanted You) alongside producers Ben Billions and Cash so while we enjoy bumping to yet ‘another one’ from this music maestro, here’s a bit more about Nav.
Born and raised in Canada (to two Indian parents), Nav would create music mash ups in high school, later deciding to create his own beats, which is where his road to fame started.
“I became, like, pretty much the coolest kid in high school because I had started making beats for local rappers,”
Fast forward to today, this fast rising rapper is creating waves with this ‘Wanted You’ single which features Trap Icon Lil Uzi Vert, a song where Nav raps about falling for the wrong kind of girl.
It takes over from Jacquees and Dej Loaf as ROTW this week, here’s a look at Wanted You.
It’s been a major year for Drake. He dropped his album Views, which has been certified 4x platinum. Earlier today, he received eight Grammy nominations. He is now prepping More Life to drop this month (possibly). And now Drake announces the pending arrival of a new OVO flagship store in the Empire State.
With no opening date announced, Drake, on Instagram, teased the new shop with a monochrome video, which features locations around Bowery Street. Turning NYC into Gotham, the clip features the OVO owl lit up in the sky like the Batman emblem. The caption? “#NYWELCOMEOVO”
This looks like a major expansion for the brand. Currently, OVO has flagships in Los Angeles and Toronto. Of course, merchandise is also available online through the company’s website.
New arrivals include an assortment of sweatpants and hooded sweatshirts featuring the OVO logo. There are also items like the camp-designed shirt which reads “OCTOBER” on the front and a similar long-sleeve that reads “let’s all get along like they do in canada” on the chest. Both items are currently sold out.
Its about that time when words are to be put into action since Trump is well on his way to the White House; all of them celebrities who threatened to move to Canada (also Timbuktu, Jupiter or the likes) if Trump won the elections didn’t see this coming but its happened.
So far, one celebrity who has seemingly put his money where his mouth is, is rapper Snoop Lion who posted on Instagram his Canada house search, tagging rapper Drake to hook him up. But does this really count considering that he hasn’t actually moved yet?
Miley Cyrus, Amy Schumer, Samuel L Jackson, Amber Rose, Cher (she actually said she would move to Jupiter) Neyo to name but a few, are some of the celebrities who promised to move to Canada and anywhere else, but so far there’s absolutely no sign of them packing (unless they’re still trying to get over the shock)
Meanwhile Amy Schumer posted a video on Instagram apologizing to Canadians for not being able to make it for her live shows since she is unwell, she went on to ask her fans to reach out to Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump’s message to all the celebrities who threatened to move out of America once he became president was, “don’t let the door hit you on your way out!”
