On July 9th, Haviah Mighty released “Avocado” in collaboration with Toronto-based DJ Grandtheft. Watch the video HERE.
This summer-ready single arrives as a tune to encourage self-confidence while stepping into a new season. Channeling confidence atop bouncy, layered beats, the fruit is used as a metaphor for ‘faking it til you make it’ – perceived strength on the outside, yet malleable and soft within.
Based out of Toronto, Haviah has spent a lifetime developing her skills as a songwriter, vocalist, producer, and performer culminating in a style of profound introspection and incisive socio-political critique. Her dynamic combinations of rap, song, and instrumental, transition seamlessly from hip-hop to soul to afrobeats with a meticulous flow and cadence that transcends any traditional expectation of genre. 2019 saw Haviah earn break-out success with her album, 13th Floor, garnering overwhelming praise from publications such as Pitchfork and Billboard, and making her the first hip-hop artist and the first Black woman to win the Polaris Music Prize, celebrating the “best Canadian album of the year”.
Haviah’s new mixtape “Stock Exchange” will be released this fall. Included in this release will be “Avocado” and Haviah’s previously released powerful single, “Protest”, featuring UK artist Yizzy.
