Dai Burger serves incisive wit and powerful, sensuous self-assurance with each of her releases. Her latest single ‘Naomi Walk’ sees her channel the strut and poise of iconic supermodel Naomi Campbell, a fitting muse for the femme empowerment at the core of the NY rapper’s music. With the track out now we caught up with the New York rapper to talk Spice Girls, Destiny’s Child and playing Amsterdam Pride last year.

Teaming up with Kidd Kenn on the track, ‘Naomi Walk’ exudes glamour and sass. Razor-sharp trap beats set the stage for Dai’s slick, playful bars and Kidd Kenn’s searing, rapid-fire verse that makes for a heady combination and a truly unstoppable pairing.

Speaking on the track Dai says, “‘Naomi Walk’ is for the fiercest and the flyest. We need to go out in the world feeling like we can conquer it. I did this song to keep that confident fashion and slaying energy alive…and I got my baby Kidd Kenn along for that extra slay. Channel that Naomi energy and get your walk on…the world is our runway.” Once again Dai Burger proves herself a truly iconic artist and we can’t wait for her new Dessert EP, dropping this July.
