This inspiring 18-year-old American influencer and musician has been paving a way for himself in the bustling industry of songwriting and music composition. With previous songwriting collaborations under his belt from the world’s titanesses of Billboard trending Pop and R&B music such as Addison Rae and Rebecca Black, his catchy lyrics are being heard by millions of listeners worldwide. NORD (Carter Davis) is originally from West Linn, Oregon in the United States – a small town located within the metropolitan area of Portland, Oregon. He is currently attending a prestigious university for a major in audio engineering in his home state, alongside songwriting for some of the world’s most renowned musicians.
The team at London Daily Post had the opportunity to conduct an interview with the talented Oregon rapper and artist, touching on the subjects of possible future collaborations within the music industry and his recent rise on social media; with NORD gaining over 700,000 Instagram followers in just over a year of the pursuit of his career in music.
“My dream songwriting collaboration would be Doja Cat, hands down. She is a powerful icon for women globally and a true gift to the genre of Pop and Contemporary R&B,” Carter (NORD’s birth name) answered to one of our interview questions. “Each one of her songs are sonically beautiful and carefully produced, and her lyrical content aligns with my style as a songwriter in a predominantly female section of the industry”.
Doja Cat is the stage name of Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, an American rapper, singer, and record producer. She was born and grew up in Los Angeles, California, and as a teenager, similar to NORD, started creating and posting music on SoundCloud. With her single “Say So” featuring feminist advocate Pop artist Nicki Minaj previously trending at the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and seven additional singles ranking in the Top 10 Billboard Chart, there’s no doubt that the American rapper and singer is a major influence in today’s music culture. With NORD (Carter Davis) continuing to manifest and work towards future impactful opportunities within the mainstream scope of Pop and Hip Hop music, we can most definitely see him working alongside Doja in the foreseeable future on a thriller of a project.
