For her first release of the year, Nissi teams up with the internationally revered Amapiano duo, Major League Djz on Gravity. The Nigerian pop and Afrojazz talent shows off her majestic vocals with the smoothest percussion in a sound that stays true to the title of the song. The duo add a typically infectious, amapiano-infused production that we’ve come to expect from the South African twins on a sensual track.
Describing Gravity as a natural song for her, Nissi shares the inspiration for the new single;
“From the first batch of beats Major League Djz sent to me, it was the one that stuck out because the instrumental resonated with a fantasy in my head of just being in a space with that one person who brings you the right energy that always gets you out of any low mood you may be in where you can sort of escape to a place where you feel as though you can do or feel anything and that feeling keeps getting better. I want this record to lift the spirits of anyone who hears it regardless of what you are doing at the time it comes on.”
Known for blending both African and European influences, the Afrojazz singer’s cross-cultural sound reflects the path she has taken in life. In addition to her music, Nissi runs her own art & animation company, Creele Studio where she regularly holds exhibitions; most recently in Paris, London and Los Angeles. She presented her “Puzzled” showcase — a celebration of African culture and vibrancy on jigsaw palettes in Lagos.
Gravity is accompanied by a slick official video that sees Nissi and her crew dancing under the sea and above the clouds. Enjoy!
