Nav has officially released his anticipated new album Bad Habits that is executive produced by The Weeknd and currently #1 on Apple Music and #1 on the iTunes Hip Hop album chart. It arrives just a week after his manager and XO Records co-founder, Cash unexpectedly leaked Nav’s five-track EP titled Brown Boy, which quickly trended #1, clocked in over 1 millions plays by the next morning, and now has over 4 million streams a week later.
Bad Habits showcases the life and times of a rapper who’s had a rapid rise to fame, and everything that comes with that, along with finding himself amongst it all. There is a duality shown in the album that traverses from concern for himself and his mother, trying to be balanced but also tales of indulging in drugs, women, the rap game and the many temptations in the life of a young successful artist.
The Toronto producer-turned-rapper has been co-signed by some of the biggest artists in the game, from being signed to The Weeknd’s XO Records to his well-known friendship and collabs with Lil Uzi Vert, producing Drake’s 2015 Grammy nominated diss track “Back To Back”, as well as producing and being featured on Travis Scott’s “Biebs In The Trap”. His 2017 album NAV has now been certified gold and he has gone double platinum with songs “Wanted You”, “Some Way” and “Myself. Additionally, his songs “Champion”, “Call Me”, “Up” and “Minute” have all gone platinum.0
