BAYLI unveils new brilliant debut single “16” from upcoming debut EP “stories from new york” on September 10
BAYLI explains: “’16’ tells the story of my mom, whom my family and I recently lost unexpectedly. Born an orphan in the UK, my mom immigrated to NYC from London at age 16. This song is a fast-forward through the hardships she faced in the years of her travels and the things she taught us from her experiences. It’s my first ever attempt at some type of memoir-esque writing. ’16’ is about how strong, epic and beautiful my mother is; she is the reason I know how to be a strong woman today.”
stories from new york is an urban symphony depicting BAYLI’s coming-of-age experience in NYC. Traversing BAYLI’s undying love for cutting edge fashion, forward-thinking music, and the broader arts world, all with refined, international taste, the collection of songs piece together a stunning mosaic of stories that define BAYLI’s self-discovery.
Both proudly Black and queer, the collaboration dropped in June, shining awareness on both Black Music Month and Pride Month. See BAYLI’s recent collaboration with Tiffany & Co. for their Pride 2021 campaign “Stand For Love”
