The blazing rhythmic dance track – underpinned by percussive drums and a hypnotic horn section – is
the first taste of her forthcoming debut album “19 & Dangerous”, which is out next Friday 6 August
via Mavin Records/Platoon.
Co-written by Ayra Starr and produced by London, this searing summer anthem bristles with self-
confidence as the Gen Z rising star banishes negative energy. She boasts, “I see you watching my stories, I see you gauging my lifestyle, I see you watching my movement, this bad bitch bad every day.”
In a social media age where public scrutiny is amplified, ‘Bloody Samaritan’ is a life-affirming reminder to protect our peace and to always big up ourselves.
Ayra Starr said: “I love this track because I was unapologetic and assertive on it – something people
my age often struggle to be, and I want my fans to feel that way when they listen to it, liberated of
societal standards and expectations.”
Hailed by NME as “the teen leading her generation’s sonic revolution”, and tipped by The Face and CLASH as one to watch – Ayra Starr has earned critical praise for her soulful vocals and raw lyrics that reflect the strength and growing pains of her generation.
