The melodic slow jam showcases the New York native at his best, blending effortlessly between layers of enticing sensuality, raw vulnerability, and self-assured confidence. Summer, of course, brings the trademark honeyed vocals that fueled her to billions of career streams and multiple Billboard records in the last year. “Bonjour” previews NO1-NOAH’s forthcoming EP, You Should Come Over, which will be released on April 22.
After displaying beams of promise on Walker’s sizzling anthems, NO1-NOAH inked a deal with her label Ghetto Earth Records in December 2020. Her first artist, NO1 looks to rattle the cages of R&B with his emo-leaning tracks and sticky hooks. His debut record, “Ridin For My Love,” flaunted his pillowy vocals and gutsy lyrics, the follow-up “Bounce” presented a seductive side, and his melodic muscles were on full display with his anthemic banger “Thank God.”
Not only did these records demonstrate his versatility and ease at mastering a range of sounds and styles, they also skyrocketed the newcomer to more than 130 million streams in the U.S. alone. The budding star has also been on the road for “The Summer Walker Series” concerts. Most recently the tour hit Houston and Chicago and will next visit Dallas on April 16.
The promising songwriter was named one of Billboard’s 15 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2020. Touted for his “ethereal vocals and intrepid lyricism,” NO1 first caused shockwaves in the R&B world when he appeared on Summer Walker’s EP Life on Earth on the standout tracks “SWV” and “White Tee.” With publications such as Rolling Stone and XXL already praising NO1-NOAH for his extraordinary talents, “Bonjour” and You Should Come Over herald the emergence of a full-fledged star.
