Naz’s First Single – Party Girls – Co written and Co Produced by DJ Nasty Naz (Trinidad/Canada) featuring Young Ex (Atlanta), is not only a club smash but a track that would be played by the masses all year round. Its a mash up style of LMFAO meets Black Eyed Peas…with a touch of Canadian Maple Goodness. Its basically about what college students do best (when not studying of course)…partying..drinking…and having fun… The hook is catchy, fun and very rhythmic, within seconds you will soon find you are bobbing and singing along to the track, with the chorus proving to have lots of energy. Its a VERY RADIO friendly track, with no swearing or lyrics about violence. It was first released on August 1st, and it has already managed to get 30,000 downloads, with the prestigious CBC as well as Stations in Quebec, London, Africa and Belgium already having the Track on rotation.
