EDITORS’ NOTES

Canada and Atlanta have been getting money together since Drake & Future’s What a Time to Be Alive, but Ontario-born NAV and Metro Boomin remain an odd pairing on paper. What could the moody singer, who proved himself a fully capable producer on his self-titled debut, do for Atlanta’s most celebrated trap producer? Plenty, apparently, and vice versa. Perfect Timing is a match made in heaven, Metro muting his signature wallop to provide hypnotic and haunting backdrops much like those of NAV’s earlier work. NAV, too, is versatile here, paired with guests the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, 21 Savage, and Belly.

About NAV

Punjabi-Canadian hip-hop recording artist NAV (aka Navraj Goraya) had his first taste of fame when reality TV star Kylie Jenner posted a Snapchat video of herself singing along to his song "Myself." The mysterious star had been steadily building a large following through a string of releases via his SoundCloud account, beginning in 2015 with "Take Me Simple." Along with the Jenner endorsement, NAV accumulated a number of high-profile connections that propelled his career forward. In January 2016, his track "Take Me Simple" was featured on fellow Canadian Drake's OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1, and later that same year he appeared on -- and in the video for -- hip-hop star Travis Scott's single "Beibs in the Trap." With his profile steadily increasing, he signed to XO, the Canadian record label founded by the Weeknd. His self-titled album appeared in early 2017, and it was chock-full of his by now trademark silky vocals and slick beats. The release was preceded by the lead single "Some Way," which also featured the Weeknd. That same year he also put out the Perfect Timing mixtape, on which he collaborated with Atlanta-based producer Metro Boomin. ~ Bekki Bemrose
