Nezsa Is Ready For ‘Trouble’ In New Single

Posted on

Nezsa made her debut in 2019 with Lost and Like This? Her effortless fusion of alternative R&B and neo-soul, distinctly unforgettable vocals, and her intricate lyricism, quickly caught the attention of emPawa Africa; a label service company founded by Mr Eazi. She released her debut EP Bitter-Sweet last year to rave reviews from fans and critics alike, before taking a hiatus to work on her forthcoming sophomore EP.

Following the release of Break, her first offering of 2022, the alternative R&B singer and songwriter is back with a new single titled Trouble. Off her anticipated sophomore EP To All The Heartbreakers, Trouble is a brilliant genre-bending R&B track, driven by her enchanting voice, layered harmonies and vivid storytelling lyrics.

On the new song, the Canada-based Nigerian rising star stands up to a toxic ex-lover, pushing back against their cheating, gaslighting and lying ways over lush synth keys, infectious 808 drum patterns, and a glorious saxophone arrangement that perfectly punctuates the track.

Sharing the inspiration for the new single, Nezsa says,

Trouble came to me so naturally. Gbeduboss sent me the beat and I was immediately enthralled by the heavy baseline and overall dark vibe. The story is inspired by some of my own experiences, but it’s also dedicated to To All the Heartbreakers, just as the EP is named. It’s a very empowering song because it’s about standing up to those who’ve hurt you and reclaiming your agency, finally showing them that you’re not weak. In a way, it’s dark because it seems to celebrate revenge, but I think that functions as a therapeutic form of expression in showing myself and also my listeners the extent of our capabilities”.
