Rising star CHAII and Party Favor teams up on a brand new amazing single “OH NAH YEAH” featured along with an official music video
Hot on heels with the release of her debut visual EP Lightswitch and subsequent single, “WOW (Look At Me),” CHAII returns more defiant than ever as a unique voice with limitless attitude and ambition. “OH NAH YEAH” features a catchy run of melodies where the Kiwi-Persian rapper skips between sung-spoken melodies and chants. Party Favor lends his dynamic production and genre-bending abilities on “OH NAH YEAH” to deliver a visionary tune filled with percussive beats.
CHAII shares about the single, “I really enjoyed working with the talented Party Favor. He’s honestly the best! Bringing our vibe together created such an exciting sound. I wrote ‘OH NAH YEAH’ about not letting fear rule my life. I had a discussion with my dad one day and what he said really stuck with me. He said don’t ever change your creative work and what you stand for because of fear. I guess I could just make safe music and not have to fear anything. OR I move forward not letting fear shape who I am. I originally started from writing the lyrics about needing to hold your ground. I often catch myself saying sorry for no reason or if I don’t make sense to someone. There’s no need to have to default to an apology for not fitting in any box, being yourself and existing.”
Featured along with the release is a kaleidoscopic music video directed by Mikey Rockwell featuring polychromatic looks and mind-altering scenes. CHAII exudes confidence as she commands each stage with her vibrant personality and forward-thinking style.
Party Favor says, “Super excited about this record. CHAII is insanely talented and has a really dope sound, and I really wanted to see how our worlds could collide. She sent me this vocal and immediately I knew we could make something incredible. Her being from Iran & New Zealand, she brings such a fresh sound to her music. This feels like a worldwide record.”
CHAII’s versatility as a rapper, producer, director, audio engineer has earned her a global reputation, while her impressive list of accolades continues to mount. From becoming Spotify’s first-ever Radar artist from New Zealand, soundtracking a Fendi campaign, to featuring in Tony Hawk’s recent video game, the new FIFA 2021 soundtracks, and Charlize Theron’s film The Old Guard, don’t take your eyes off this star of the rise.
Party Favor is also ½ of the Grammy-nominated house duo SIDEPIECE, who earned a nomination in the Best Dance Recording category for their hit single “On My Mind” with Diplo (over 100 million Spotify streams).
