Singer/Songwriter NO-1 NOAH (Ghetto Earth Records/Interscope Records) isn’t ready to close the doors shut on his 2021. The R&B polymath bounces back with his melodic banger, “Thank God.” Director Patricio Mosquera delivers an anime thriller for NOAH’s visualizer, where an all-out melee occurs. Though NOAH escapes unscathed from the battle, all doesn’t end well for the rising star. As for the song itself, it finds a confident NOAH stiff-arming detractors with his bruising wordplay and buttery delivery.
Last January, the promising songwriter was named one of Billboard’s 15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch. Touted for his “ethereal vocals and intrepid lyricism,” NOAH first caused shockwaves in the R&B world when he appeared on Summer Walker‘s 2020 standout EP Life on Earth. NOAH’s indelible prints landed on the singer’s stellar cuts “SWV” and “White Tee,” where he served as her guest feature.
After displaying beams of promise on Walker’s sizzling anthems, NO-1 inked a deal with her label Ghetto Earth Records last winter. Serving as her first artist, NOAH looks to rattle the cages of R&B with his emo-leaning tracks and sticky hooks. Since announcing his deal, his opening record, “Ridin For My Love,” flaunted his pillowy vocals and gutsy lyrics. NOAH is also coming off the release of his hypnotic record “Bounce.” The seductive earworm showcased NOAH’s supreme ability to get any woman he desired.
With publications such as Rolling Stone and XXL already praising NOAH for his extraordinary talents, it’s only a matter of time before he morphs into a full-fledged star.
