“I want my fans to feel like they’ve un-fucked any bad ex they’ve ever had
and just bought a new car with their refund.” – Nnena
“Nnena’s a powerhouse artist. Daring, insightful and brilliantly talented.
We couldn’t feel prouder to be working with her.” – J.J. Abrams
Cleveland-based first generation Nigerian-American and neo-soul rapper Nnena (née Nnena Adigwe) drops new track ‘Lovesick’ — the first signing and debut single on Bad Robot’s new independent record label Loud Robot. Produced by Charles Scott IV, the song comes alongside a gripping video directed by JD Dillard and produced by Bad Robot.
A record sprung from passion, heartbreak and taking back power, ‘Lovesick’ celebrates our flaws and breaks down how the different sides of one’s self reacts, responds and repairs after loss. Revered for her humour and ferocity, the multi-talented artist also made many of the video’s character costumes which represent her own aspirational personas.
Nnena’s inspiration comes from female MC storytelling elites. Lauryn Hill, Aretha Franklin, Missy Elliot and Queen Latifah line the inside locker of her mind. She has taken her hard hitting hooks and flowing melodies across the US, performing alongsideWS Boogie, Mayorkun and Trinidad James.
“This project is a diary of musical secrets coming to light by the right type of bitch,” she says. “A liberating fuck you to anyone who has felt pain by anyone. I want my music to be the light at the end of a damaged person’s tunnel.”
