Ninja announced the stream in a sponsored Tweet on March 22, where he revealed that Nav would be showing off songs from his upcoming album during their broadcast.
“Super pumped to be playing some Fortnite with Nav today!” Ninja wrote. “He's going to be showing off his new album for us, too.”
Navraj ‘Nav’ Goraya is a Canadian rapper, as well as a record producer, singer, and songwriter.
Nav got his start on the music streaming service called Soundcloud, and is now signed to XO and Republic Records - the former of which is also shared by popular singer ‘The Weeknd.’
The stream begins at 12:00 PM Pacific Standard Time (3:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM GMT), and will showcase Nav’s forthcoming album, ‘Bad Habits.’
This isn’t the first time Ninja has collaborated with major names in the music space; the streamer likewise teamed up with popular EDM artist ‘Marshmello’ for the 2018 E3 Fortnite Pro-AM, and even streamed the game with rapper Drake, breaking the record for most concurrent viewers on an individual Twitch channel in the process.
Ninja also released his own EDM album in late 2018, in collaboration with EDM legends like Kaskade, Tiesto, and Tycho, among others.
