By far one of the standout. Upcoming sure to be new stars on Snoop Dogg’s recently released new Def Jam compilation album, Algorithm. That was prominently featured. Was upcoming singer, Malaya.
The singer, is not exactly brand new. As many may remember, Malaya, from finishing eighth in the 13th season of American Idol. Back in 2014 when she went by her full name of, Malaya Watson. Though she has been fairly quiet post Idol. As far as releasing new music. Releasing her debut single, Time, back in 2018.
Malaya, has been a little more active over the past couple of years. Releasing her debut EP and project, My Diary: The Prelude. Just last year and has worked fairly closely with frequent Snoop Dogg collaborator, Terrace Martin. Over that time as well. Which is how she likely ended up on Snoop’s Def Jam album.
The Terrace Martin and Kid Culture co-produced record, Anxiety. One of the main highlights from two Malaya solo records on the album. Which, Malaya, Snoop and company. Debuted last night the colorful brand new accompanying video for the very upbeat record. That sees her over a colorful backdrop and with many different angles. Showing her up close and personal. Allows the focus to be on not only the very relatable lyrics to the record. But also showing off, Malaya’s, very remarkably amazing singing voice.
