Nezsa Reflects On Regret And Heartbreak In New Alt-R&B Single, ‘Should Have Cared’.

Coming on the back of the massive success of her last single ‘Trouble’, which has amassed over half a million plays online, and recently being selected by Apple Music as their ‘Africa Rising’ artist, alternative R&B singer and songwriter NEZSA is excited to unveil her brand new single ‘Should Have Cared’ as she continues to sow the seeds for her highly anticipated debut album and sophomore project ‘To All The Heartbreakers’, which is set for release this Spring.

Written and composed by Nezsa, produced by Denzl (BNXN, Papi Ojo), and engineered by Mariano Bilinkis (KHEA, Emilia Mernes, Nicki Nicole), ‘Should Have Cared’ is a neo-soul masterpiece from the Nigerian rising star, driven by her sultry and enchanting vocals, lush and layered melodies, and vivid storytelling. The track is brought further to life by its immaculate soundscape, from the captivating drum and bass patterns to the minimalist violin arrangements to the saxophone section.

‘Should Have Cared’ sees Nezsa continuing to explore the themes of love and relationships that will manifest all over her upcoming album ‘To All The Heartbreakers’. After she asks for care on the fragile ‘Break’, then confronts a toxic ex-lover on her last single ‘Trouble’, Nezsa is in a much more reflective mood on ‘Should Have Cared’ as she goes through an internal battle of healing from the past, and opens up about regret and heartbreak from a previous relationship.

Song of the Day: Storyteller – DDG

What happens when you fuse space-age production quirks and trap-soaked drums with a ranged, melody-driven rap toolkit? You get DDG. After turning into ‘Elon Musk’ alongside YSL’s Gunna and diving into the UK rap ether — via Notion — selecting a 10Trax-worth of UK rap anthems, DDG is back to govern the summer. The multi-platinum Pontiac native is back with his single, ‘Storyteller’, courtesy of Epic Records.

For the track — produced by Corbett — DDG tugs on the heartstrings as he croons in a pop-adjacent manner over a trap-spun beat. In a welcome switch-up from his recent tunes, ‘Storyteller’ does exactly what the title infers. DDG crafts a narrative around heartache, toxic masculinity and the art of emotional warfare. On the instrumental front, the track is kitted-out with sharp 808 drum kicks and shimmering guitar riffs.

‘Storyteller’ follows DDG’s viral, Gunna-assisted single ‘Elon Musk’, released back in February. Since its debut, the Complex co-signed-track has amassed well over 25 million streams on Spotify alone — with almost 10 million views on YouTube too. ‘Storyteller’ looks to continue DDGs relentless splash in the UK scene as he comes through with pitch-perfect style and bravado.

This July, DDG is set to share a highly-anticipated full-length project. Tentatively entitled, ’Take Me Serious 2’ — the follow-up to his cult classic mixtape from 2017 — DDG will accompany this drop by flying to European shores in July to hit the festival circuit. DDG is looking to infiltrate the Europe rap sphere with gigs at Wireless Festival in the UK, WooHah in the Netherlands, Rolling Loud Portugal and Splash in Germany.

With a potential classic project in the works, ‘Storyteller’ has set the benchmark high for mainstream hip hop in 2022. Check him out in an official video below…

Song of the Day: Wide Awake – Emily Molloy

A firm fixture in the indie music community of the West Coast, Canadian artist EMILY MOLLOY has created a rather raw, emotive-packed piece, coming in the shape of single, ‘Wide Awake’, taking from her latest EP, ‘Catastrophes.’

Written in under an hour, Molloy was emboldened by a break-up experienced by award-winning director Angie Nolan. Finding perspective through Nolan’s pain, Molloy packs each emotional punch with her raspy, full-bodied vox; each resolve in the lyrics a little more hurt than the last until she scales the note so hard in the bridge, you can feel in your soul the shattering of her heart. Molloy perfectly embodies a wailing wall of sorrow and sadness in one fell swoop.

After writing ‘Wide Awake’, I remember thinking to myself, ‘Wait…I’m not going through this myself, but Angie is,’” she recalls. “I realised I had written the song about her, and from her perspective, but that we can all relate.”

Enlisting recording engineer Eric Mosher at the Warehouse Studios in 2020, Molloy quickly realized that “Wide Awake” was the stand-out track on her latest EP. “This is my most vulnerable song recorded to date, and I knew I needed a video that would fully capture the story and emotion expressed. The song turned out more beautifully stunning in the studio than I could ever hoped for, and it screamed for its visual equal.”
