Following this past summer’s “Boogie All Night” collaboration with Chic and Mura Masa, NAO teams up with 6LACK for a new single titled “If You Ever.”
Released in support of NAO’s forthcoming studio album — and the follow-up to her 2016 debut LP — Saturn, “If You Ever” serves as the latest piece of promo before that LP’s October 26 release date.
“Big love to my boy @6lack for jumping on If You Ever from my album,” NAO shared via Instagram. Besides 6LACK, Saturn also features contributions from SiR and Kwabs.
“My friends kept telling me about the term ‘Saturn Returns’. It’s this idea that Saturn takes 29 years to orbit from when you’re born and it is the planet of blessings and growth,” NAO previously revealed in a press statement about her forthcoming project, breaking down the motivations and themes behind it. ”So by the time you’re around 29, between 27 and 32, something big happens in your life. It’s like waking up and coming of age, like: ‘I’ve been going through my twenties and what have I been doing in this relationship?’ What have I been doing in this job?’ You start to rethink everything – old stuff that your parents taught you or ideas that you believed in. It’s like a complete shedding of skin and it can be painful.”

Last week, 6LACK reconnected with J. Cole for the official “Pretty Little Fears” video.
