/ -- Nia Faith Gray is singer/songwriter who was born into the right family. Her father, Steve Gray, is a music producer who is no stranger to the recording industry. During the early 1990's, Steve was lead singer for the R&B group "4 by Four" signed to Capitol Records. Admittedly a "daddy's girl," Nia Faith asked her father to executive produce and engineer her upcoming EP.
"Step Your Game Up" (youtu.be/14I-0spmeEs
) addresses the challenges faced by teen girls as they navigate the attention that they receive from teen boys. The song's theme explores how some young men have the bravado, but have not necessarily embraced the social skills and behaviors needed to impress a girl -or her father.
Steve adds, "As a dad, I can say that not just any young man is going to have an opportunity to get to know my daughter. It's my job to make sure that she is aware of her worth as a person, especially when it comes to dating. These are lessons that we address musically, because we have that in common."
Nia Faith has her own thoughts on the matter: "It is important for every person to know their worth, but I feel that sometimes girls struggle more with self-esteem. This song encourages young women to insist on being treated with respect and value." Nia Faith's sister, rapper Jas Troy, is featured on the single, and together they hope to inspire their peers to have positive relationship goals.
