Noori Belai – “Snakes!” music video
“Dedicating this one to the wolves in sheep clothes. People who smiled in my face, but stabbed me in my back when they thought no one was looking. If you ever hated on, laughed at, doubted, or sneak dissed me, thank you. If you ever rejected me, thank you. If you ever claimed to be my friend and switched up, thank you. You made me better, and through those trials, I was re-directed to breakthrough after breakthrough after breakthrough. So it’s truly MORE LOVE TO MY ENEMIES ’cause there’s been elevation on the other side of all of my pain. That’s why shawty stays lit. We don’t vibrate with negativity. We rejoice. Why? ‘Cause regardless the real one’s gon’ ride while the fake ones divide. Either way, we smile and give thanks. Rain or shine. Sha sha, we move. Let’s run it.” – Noori Belai explained
‘Snakes!’ was written in honor of Noori Belai’s haters, who create fake pages just so they can troll her via social media. Noori appreciates when they speak negatively behind her back because negative sentiments drive her to succeed.
‘Snakes!’ contains a relatable narrative, tuneful melodies, and ear-pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of H.E.R., Summer Walker, SZA, and Shenseea. The vibey tune possesses saturated drums and boomin’ bass-laden instrumentation flavored with urban and contemporary R&B elements. Furthermore, “Snakes!” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear from Noori Belai in the near future as she continues to release new music.
Noori Belai has been singing for as long as she can remember. Growing up outside of Washington D.C. in Silver Spring, Maryland, she constantly had melodies and lyrics stuck in her head, belting them out for whoever was around—even when they didn’t want to listen.
“When I was a kid, all I remember was singing and everyone telling me to shut up,” she laughs. “But it stuck with me.” As the daughter of Ethiopian immigrants in a predominantly white suburb, Noori often felt caught between multiple worlds. “At school, I couldn’t really identify with American culture because I didn’t grow up with it,” she says, so she turned to music – eventually experimenting on her own, combining the piano with songwriting. “Music started off as an escape and it evolved into self-expression,” she says.
