Up-and-coming independent music artist Star Waan released his debut album titled Keep It Blazin’ in October 2020, and he has never been out of music fans’ minds since then. Awestruck by his 11-track album with the title track “Keep It Blazin’,” fans cannot help but look for more. In a short period, the hit single generated over 16k views on YouTube, signaling the beginning of something exciting in his career.
The gifted rapper and songwriter from New Jersey was born in Jamaica and only migrated to the United States when he was already a teenager. He brought with him a rich Jamaican culture, and after some time, he was able to combine it with the funky and electrifying sounds of hip-hop from America. Inspired by the sounds and distinct styles of Michael Jackson, Tupac, and Jimmy Cliff, Star Waan started to develop his own personal brand. In 2017, he finally took the plunge and pursued his music career.
“My culture, discipline, and my standards of being an outgoing person makes me think that anything is possible once I work hard toward it,” Star Waan explains. “I have many abilities, from capturing an impressive crowd to creating a bright and energetic sound with the compilation of genres such as dancehall, hip-hop, and pop. But for real, I am my only competition. My goal is to set my own lane in this whole entertainment world,” he adds.
The music industry can get very challenging, but Star Waan draws inspiration from his personal desire to create a better life for his family. He looks back to his old life and remembers the many struggles he faced along with his family, motivating him to push harder when times get tough and never give up. Bringing pride and joy to his family, ancestry, and friends brings him so much fulfillment. Additionally, creating a lasting legacy for them is of great importance to him at the moment.
In the next few years, Star Waan envisions himself dominating the music industry with his exceptional music, highlighting his forward-thinking personality and impressive lyrical skills. Knowing that the music industry is a highly competitive community, he also looks forward to doing collaborations with other artists, producers, and songwriters to explore other possibilities for his growing career. Starting his own businesses in the area of fashion, technology, and health are some of the things he aspires to do in the next few years to grow his personal wealth and give his family a comfortable life.
Star Waan is also determined to contribute to charitable institutions whose advocacy is all about helping the less fortunate. For the rising artist, success can only be appreciated when one knows how to live generously and look after the needs of underprivileged communities whenever possible.
This year, he looks forward to making more connections with his fans, writing more music, and putting himself out there despite the global crisis happening right now. At present, he is working on a new unnamed project with Tysav OGT, also an upcoming artist from New Jersey, that includes the single “Make It Out.” He is nothing but excited that 2021 will reveal another gem from his inner musical treasure trove. As his music continues to inspire, bring joy, and comfort to his listeners, Star Waan will work tirelessly to impact the world.
