Lawson J – NYAS (Not Yet A Star)
“Not Yet A Star” by Lawson J is a hip hop / rap song that every upcoming artist can relate to. The bitter taste of people giving you excellent feedback on your songs but not willing to share it because you are not successful enough or famous yet, or worse, people who ignore your messages for the same reason.
Lawson J—singer, songwriter, composer, producer—makes contemporary pop that mixes R&B, hip hop, rap, Latin, and soul thanks to his influences through artists such as Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, and Michael Jackson, whom his parents played every day during his childhood, as well as contemporary artists like Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, or huge artists and producers like Dr. Dre.
Junior creates all his songs from A to Z, in his bedroom, as his official debut single “Ahí Aye,” a catchy summer song, composed during the 2020 quarantine, “Maria,” evoking the struggle of domestic violence through the eyes of a friend who feels like he’s just a powerless witness, or “Stay Together” talking about summer loves and how the end of it can be heartbreaking.
With his last release, “Not Yet A Star,” Lawson J expresses the painful reality of being an artist but not famous enough to make people pay attention.
