"This trio will never disappoint."
NAV has released his new single ‘Never Sleep’, featuring Travis Scott and Lil Baby.
At just over three minutes, ‘Never Sleep’ features production from Tay Keith, Grayson and Mike Dean.
The track hears NAV, Travis Scott and Lil Baby deliver a verse each in a fast-paced flow, mimicking a non-stop lifestyle.
NAV first teased the song by sharing a short snippet on his Discord server on July 20, 2022.
A few days later, RapCaviar posted another snippet announcing its release.
The snippet solely consisted of NAV’s part on the track.
NAV and Travis Scott are longtime collaborators who have worked together on ‘Champion’, ‘Beibs in the Trap’, ‘Yosemite’ and ‘Turks’.
In addition, the Toronto rapper has worked with Lil Baby on ‘Off White Vlone’ and ‘Don’t Need Friends’.
‘Never Sleep’ is expected to serve as the lead single of NAV’s upcoming album Demons Protected by Angels.
Demons Protected by Angels was announced in late June 2022, however, no release date has been announced.
It will be NAV’s first full-length release since his Emergency Tsunami mixtape in November 2020.
His last album, Good Intentions, was released in May 2020.
The year 2022 has been a quiet year for the hip-hop artist, only featuring on Vory’s ‘Do Not Disturb’. This makes ‘Never Sleep’ his first lead single of the year.
A music video for ‘Never Sleep’ is expected to be released soon.
A lyric video of the track has had over 82,000 views so far and NAV’s fans took to the comments section to share their appreciation.
