AWA covers Notion 90, reflecting on her journey, setting boundaries and much more.

“I don’t feel comfortable being told what to do or, in any sort of capacity, to mould myself after what other people like to hear.”


After taking the time and space to focus on herself, AWA is manifesting her childhood dreams with 00s R&B-inspired sounds and self-bolstering lyrics daring us to be the best version of ourselves. Covering Notion 90, she looks back on everything she’s learned since her start in the industry almost a decade ago, from finding confidence in her vision to setting boundaries around it.
