Reason behind Rush song by Ayra Starr 

In an interview, Ayra Starr explained the reason behind the song as well as the meaning of the song:

I think the time when I made “Rush”, I made “Rush” with this amazing writer called Embryo, thank you Embryo for allowing me enter that space. When I wrote “Rush”, I was in a space where I was so unsure of myself, and I grew up a very confident person. Ehn! As a child, nobody could tell me anything! I’m telling you! I would be like

“I’m going to be a superstar”, and I would just like be that confident. And when “Bloody Samaritan” started blowing up, I was also entering a stage in womanhood also. So it was a lot. I was not with my family cuz I’m travelling around the world and everything.

So I was in a phase where I was very insecure, very unsure of myself, I wasn’t sure what I could do. I felt like everything I was was someone else’s idea and it wasn’t me. So I wanted to find myself, I wanted to find the real me. And that’s when I made “Rush” and it was my song. Like yeah, this is who I am, take it or leave it.

To be honest, I didn’t even want to release “Rush“. I was like “no, I want to do something like more like I want to talk about life, I want to do something singy with my vocals”, but then Jazzy was like this is the song and I was like “but I feel like I’m speaking too much pidgin”, I was so insecure about it. I had so many thoughts about it. But Jazzy, Tega, my A&R in general, they had so much confidence in this song. And just the confidence they transferred to me, I was like okay, if they’re so confident about this song then let me try it. And I did. From the first day, I’ve not seen one bad comment about “Rush” till now and it’s crazy.

Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe (born 14 June 2002), known professionally as Ayra Starr, is a Nigerian singer.

Born in Cotonou, Benin, Ayra Starr began a fashion career at the age of 16 with Quove Model Management before deciding to pursue music.

Having been raised in a music-loving family, her interest in singing comes mostly from her family. At the age of 10, she sang in a high school choir and began writing songs with her brother.

She attended Les Cours Sonou University and received a BA degree in international relations and political science.

During her college years, she was often bullied by her classmates because of her age and appearance. To counter the feelings she experienced from being taunted, Ayra Starr turned to music. “I would listen to Nicki Minaj on my way to school, and I’d feel like the second Nicki Minaj.

Ayra Starr’s mother was very supportive of her musical ambitions, and always encouraged her to pursue a singing career.

After covering several songs by popular artists on Instagram, she posted her first original song on her page in December 2019.

This brought her to the attention of record executive Don Jazzy, and led to her signing to Mavin Records.

In early 2021, Ayra Starr achieved mainstream recognition with her eponymous debut extended play and its hit track “Away” which spent two consecutive weeks at number four on Nigeria’s TurnTable Top 50 and went to number 17 on  Top Triller Global, paving the way for the release of her first full-length studio album, 19 & Dangerous in August 2021.

Categorized mainly as Afropop and R&B, the album has been met with favorable critical reception.

It spawned two top forty hits in Nigeria.

The lead single “Bloody Samaritan” peaked atop the Top 50 chart, becoming the first solo song by a female artist to reach the number-one position. Starr debuted on Pandora Predictions chart, and on 28 August 2021, she ranked number two on Billboard’s Next Big Sound

With the release of her debut eponymous EP, some critics felt that her vocal technique bore a striking resemblance to Tems’ musical style. In an interview with Cool FM, Ayra Starr spoke about comparisons to Tems:

“I’m a young artist and Tems is an amazing musician, for people to compare me to such an amazing musician, it’s a compliment and I’m honoured.”

Motolani Alake, in his review of the EP for Pulse wrote that “Ayra Starr isn’t exactly a replica of Tems, but when she manipulates her vocals to stress the final syllable on words, sentences and cadences by flexing her octaves, she definitely sounds like Tems.”

Alake also opined that both artists are different and that “Tems can be more alternative while Starr is more Nigerian and more Afropop with more lamba in her soul

Although musically diverse, Ayra Starr’s sound has predominantly been categorized as Afropop and R&B. Her voice has been described in the media as “silky”, “cozy”, “delicate”, “sturdy”, “arresting” and “soulful”, with music critics noting the dynamic nature of her range and emotional delivery.
