DJ Naz looks at the lack of honesty in interpersonal relationships between lovers in her latest single Talk the Truth.

“This is a situation that people go through — my friends experience this. They meet guys, they lie and then when everything is good, a woman pops up out of nowhere and is calling your phone and in a big argument with you, so that is why I am asking guys to Talk Di Truth,” she said.

Released on August 4 on her Naz Nation Records label, Naz is pleased with the response to the song, which she performed for the first time at a party called Skympy on the weekend.

“The audience liked the song, especially the girls; ah the gal dem anthem,” she said.

Naz (given name Nazaria Davis nee Taylor) comes from a line of musical personalities. She is daughter of Don Taylor, the former manager of Bob Marley. Her mother is Joy White, who is popularly known for her hit song First Cut, produced by Donovan Germain's Penthouse Records. DJ Naz's sister is Mystic Davis, the dancer and artiste who scored a major hit with Major Lazer's Bubble Butt alongside American recording artistes Bruno Mars and Tyga.

After high school, she pursued her dreams of entering the music business by studying studio engineering. She became fascinated with the idea of becoming a disc jockey. DJ Naz followed her heart and in 2009, she was the lone female DJ in the exciting Heineken Green Synergy competition. Since 2009, her skills on the turntables have grown tremendously. She re-entered Green Synergy in the year 2010 where she placed third.

DJ Naz has emerged as a bonafide disc jockey, landing gigs here and more recently in Suriname, but now she is dabbling more in the creative side of the industry with her foray into recording.

“I always feel the need to do music, but I didn't want to do any ABC stuff or anything foolish. The need to do music was there a long time, but I am not a singer. My mother did First Cut is the Deepest but singing is; not my thing, mi will deejay, even if I do positive songs. I would deejay, not any choir or singing,” she said.

Her other songs include Guitar Hero, On The Floor, Acid Headz, and Let's Do It.

“Right now I am looking to shake things up a little,” she said.
