Usually known for her collaborations with Pusha T, CeeLo Green, A$AP Rocky or Iggy Azaela, Naz Tokio is joined this time by Dallas Austin and Junior Sanchez to deliver Moneyango. While the world economy has been on a forced break since the health crisis, the young artist surrounds herself with her crew to make money in the boldest way! Like the fluorescent Spring Breakers of Harmony Korine, Naz Tokio and her gang serve themselves out of strangers’ pockets right before partying with their new savings. This dancing bop perfect for the summer, which reminds us of M.I.A’s Paper Planes, marks the return of the young woman since her nomination to the Grammy’s in her singer’s role. After the big success of Save Me in 2015, her double platinum-certified single which generated more than 100 million streams on Spotify, we saw Naz Tokio on screen in the reality show of her friends Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross, Ashlee + Evan, which showed the couple’s difficulties to face their daily and artistic life by assuming their family name, complicated to wear in the artistic world.
As a true free spirit, Naz Tokio describes herself as a “Producer: Arcade Distillery Video Games Singer Writer Spaceship Alien Crash Landed on Earth“! Moneyango was written and produced in less than an hour by its three creators while they were working on Junior Sanchez’s album during lockdown. Regarding an album or a new EP, Naz Tokio has told Starry Mag that she is currently working on it. It will be her “real voice,” she says. “Everything will come from me because it will not be a collaboration with another artist this time“.
