The dream soon became a reality. Ayanis signed with island Prolific/Atlantic Records in December 2017 and soon after released the girl power single, “F.I.Y.T.” (Fuck Is You Thinking).” In 2018, Ayanis wrapped the Access Granted: HBCU Tour presented by Atlantic Records and Live Nation Urban where she was visiting select HBCUs throughout the homecoming season. That same year, she released her debut EP, DIRECTION, which included acclaimed tracks “Awh Yeh” and “F.I.Y.T. (Fuck Is You Thinking).” In 2019, she tapped rap superstar Wiz Khalifa to deliver a sensual record, “One Night.” 2020 marked the start of a new chapter in the artist’s career, unveiling a new collaboration with fellow R&B sensation Queen Naija for “Lil Boi (Big Talk),” later to be remixed in 2021 by Jack Harlow. The year also welcomed her single, “Ecstasy,” ahead of the release of her second EP, YANI. 2020 was a noteworthy year but Ayanis is not letting up. She kicked off the new year as one of Billboard’s ‘15 Hip-Hop and R&B Artists to Watch in 2021’ and has followed that up with the release of the sensual track “Blues” and the impressive collaboration, “Drip (Feat. Mulatto).”
