Platinum-certified Toronto rapper and producer NAV has dropped the music video for Champion featuring Travis Scott. The song is the latest single from his full-length debut album “Reckless”, released via XO and Republic Records.

 

 

Taking over an oceanside estate, NAV filmed the video in Hawaii during the top secret sessions for Scott’s new album, ASTROWORLD, on which he also features.

 

Directed by XO’s very own Amir “Cash XO” Esmailian, the video co-stars Atlanta rapper Gunna, rising star Sheck Wes as well as Don Toliver, the latest artist to join Scott’s Cactus Jack Records.

 

NAV’s quiet infiltration of pop culture continues with Champion, following up the success of a string of RIAA-certified platinum hits, including Myself, Some Way (featuring The Weeknd), and Wanted You (featuring Lil Uzi Vert).

 

NAV is rising as one of rap’s most innovative and infectious voices. Early last year he joined forces with powerhouse producer Metro Boomin for the collaborative album, Perfect Timing”.

 

In 2016, not only did he co-produce the Grammy Award-nominated Back to Back for Drake, but he also featured on and produced the platinum-selling beibs in the trap for Travis Scott’s blockbuster “Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight”.

 

A streaming phenomenon, NAV regularly averages over 7.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify making him one of the most-listened-to artists worldwide. In addition to selling out solo shows coast to coast, he also joined The Weeknd for The Starboy Tour.

 

Over the last year he’s garnered production credits on tracks with Kodak Black, Gucci Mane, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, and most recently The Carters (Jay-Z & Beyonce). The tastemaker favourite has also received praise from Rolling Stone, Complex, Billboard, and The Fader.
