Introducing, NAV – your new favourite artist, with ties to The Weeknd & the XO family.

NAV

Born and raised in the Toronto district of Rexdale, Ontario, NAV got his start like many – on the popular music streaming site, Soundcloud. Having amassed 260k followers on his platform, NAV’s music was getting noticed by some influential people including celebs such as Kylie Jenner and Post Malone. Both stars were showing their interest publicly, as well as Drake‘s OVO Sound Radio camp & crew.

One of Drake’s core producers, 40, was an early supporter of NAV’s music. Tweeting out the songs:

One of NAV’s earlier accomplishments was also getting a nod from OVO Sound Radio.

With all the attention pouring in, it didn’t take long for The Weeknd‘s camp to start turing their heads in his direction. The Weeknd’s Manager, Cash, took an interest in the Rexdale native and soon a deal was brought to the table.

Cash found me I got cash now #CashXO

NAV was signed to XO & Republic Records, and officially dropped his first single under the label with a strong feature from The Weeknd. Have a listen to “Some Way” featuring the Starboy himself.

NAV – “Some Way” ft. The Weeknd

NAV has also been busy working on other projects besides his own. One that might be a stand out for some was his involvement with Travis Scott‘s track “Biebs in the Trap.” NAV sings the hook on this track and was heavily involved with the song’s production. You can check him out in the video too!

You might have also missed NAV’s cameo in The Weeknd‘s “Reminder” music vid. Check in at 1:45,

It’s crazy how far he’s come, and we can only see him blowing up even more. In fact, NAV just dropped his self-titled debut mixtape, which you can stream below!

The Starboy has landed once again, and this time on the GRAMMYs stage. On Sunday night, The Weeknd was brought out by electronic super-duo Daft Punk to perform “I Feel It Coming” off Abel’s smash album, Starboy. Daft Punk were also key contributors on The Weeknd’s title track “Starboy” and we got to hear a snippet of the song at the beginning of his performance. The entire show was electric, and this was just one major highlight of the night in our opinion!

Watch the full performance below:

How sick was that?!

Abel also posted some pics of himself and the robots on his Insta that we’re currently fan-girling over ’em all.
