They have joined forces like Autobots to give the public a product that will be competitive as it challenges industry-leading brands like Hennessy, Hine, Courvoisier, Martell and Rémy Martin.

“Nyak is premium cognac and the culture loves cognac. We want to connect the Nyak brand to change agents in the culture…the artists who push the needle and drive our culture with their innovative artistry,” Nyak founder and serial entrepreneur Dennis McKinley stated. “Our collaboration with Young M.A will be the first of many as we keep our finger on the pulse of what and who is shaping culture and lifestyle.”
Young M.A. is not the only artist slated to be sponsoring the up-and-coming drink. Nyak has announced the Celebrate Success Artist Series campaign, which spotlights musicians and gives them a platform to perform live throughout a series of video content and social media visuals.
Young M.A’s music video for her single “Successful” and “Off the Yak” have product placements of Nyak.
