If you remember, we spoke about Stanaj a few months back as he debuted his new song, “Romantic“. The 22-year old singer-songwriter comes through to bless us this Monday with the release of his debut EP, “The Preview“.
Back in 2015, Stanaj was on everyone’s radar as he was snapped with photos of Drake and Jay-Z. In addition, he was playing the piano at the Drake‘s YOLO Mansion as part of a party. He is currently signed with LAVA and Republic Music and since then has been working on his writing, production and songs.
According to an exchange he had with Complex, he’s hopped in the studio with some of the most talent producers and songwriters such as Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Britney Spears), Mattman & Robin (Ellie Goulding, Nick Jonas) and HazeBanga (Mariah Carey, Santigold).
The EP is made off four tracks and has no featured collaborations. Continuing with his exchange with Complex, he did work with Sebastian Kole, who wrote Alessia Cara‘s “Here“. They both penned the song, “Ain’t Love Strange”. I’ve been personally excited to see more for the New Yorker and here we have it. Take a listen to the premiere of “The Preview” EP below and look for it as it is set to drop on August 9th via Republic Records. You can pre-order the album via iTunes.
