In a South Florida music scene that's thriving in hip hop, Oya Baby is quickly becoming a name to know!
The 25-year-old hit the scene in 2020 when she used N.O.R.E.’s “Superthug” for her debut “Super Thot.” With a style very much in the vain of a Megan Thee Stallion & Cardi B, Oya pulls more on her Hispanic stylings to emphasize her sexual tone.
The video, hit big, as it racked up more than 100,000 views. Signed by IMG and supported by Miami's own Flo Rida, Oya continued to keep her name in the game with the releases of “Cinnamon,” and today's featured track "Try Me."
From beginning to end the song uses every style of hook that makes up most of hip hop today, but just cause you have it doesn't mean you know how to use it. Oya's concise bars smoothly move through the track using every catchy aspect like a boost of air holding up a leaf in the wind. With each verse she comfortably lands on a hook and uses it to push her sound forward. A more radio friendly track "Try Me" serves as both a strip club bop that pops when you hear it in your car. There should be no surprise if you see many a youngin clappin to this track.
Recently, Oya Baby teamed up with her label mate Int’l Nephew for his track “Bout It, Bout It.”
