While in LA, Naeya got the chance to work with super producer Clayton William (E-40, Justin Bieber, Sage The Gemini) before crossing paths with producer John Strucel. The latter helped her shape her raw, dark and emotional sound, inspired by singers like Banks, and Lapsley. This collaboration led to a co-publishing deal with distinguished production company Alcon Sleeping Giant, home to artists known as Colbie Caillat, Paul McCartney, and many more.
Naeya bared her soul in her debut EP entitled Secrets in 2016. It was quickly picked up and written about by well established blogs all over the world. In January 2017, she released her single Stay Away, and it landed in Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist and Spotify France’s official “Jour de Pluie (Rainy Day)” playlist. Naeya’s second single Home, also made it onto Spotify’s official Fresh Finds: Hiptronix playlist and Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist. Naeya is continuing to release singles throughout the year.
