In the latter half of 2022, NAV impressed his fanbase with the arrival of Demons Protected By Angels. The 19-track effort landed on DSPs in early September, complete with guest appearances from Bryson Tiller, Lil Uzi Vert, Gunna, and more. To celebrate that project, the Canadian will be heading out on his Never Sleep tour next week – but not before sharing a new single with the world.
On Friday (February 10), the 33-year-old delivered "Lately," which is set to appear on his forthcoming NAV 2 album. According to a press release, the singer's next effort will be fully written and produced by him. It also marks the follow-up to 2017's NAV, which includes just one feature from The Weeknd on "Some Way."
His "Lately" single arrives just in time for NAV's North American tour, which launches on Valentine's Day in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Afterward, the artist is due to take over cities like Detroit, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, and Phoenix with special guests SoFaygo and RealestK. He'll also make stops in Vancouver, BC on March 12th and his final performance will take place in Toronto on April 11th.
For the Never Sleep tour's last night in the 6ix, NAV will perform alongside R&B star Bryson Tiller. On the latter's Demons Protected By Angels album, he linked up with the Kentucky-born singer to craft their "Reset" track. It remains unclear if the latter will make any appearances on the upcoming NAV 2 album, but here's hoping.

Put this shit on your tongue if you want to feel like me
