In 2021, Naya focused mostly on collaborative efforts with other artistes. Most recently, she was featured on Ejoya’s Class of 21.

On this earworm, you just want to keep things cozy. So shut that door, dim those lights, and turn up your more sensitive side to this amazing record tailored to put out the distance between you and that special somebody, as you let her voice guide you.

The song was produced by her frequent collaborator Lemar Abdul. Closer explores and creates the perfect blend of R&B and EDM with a dash of Pop elements.
