FINALLY, the anticipated EP from the BBC Sound of 2017 5th runner up artist, and her lyrics are just as lit as her trademark buns.
Apart from bangers such as ‘Swkod’, ‘Crank It’ ft Kideko, George Kwali as well as the recent video for ‘Intro’, there are other tracks that will have you refusing to remaining sitting down when the beat drops.
‘Tight Up’ is proving to a popular hit that will sure be on loudspeakers across festival season and the clubs, but just like ‘Intro’, ‘Poltergeist’ is an Hip Hop track. Nevertheless, ‘U Know What’ has a catchy grime feel with ‘2H2H’ constitutes to the sound of the afrobeats that is heavily influencing Grime as we know it. Besides, we think that ‘2H2H’ will become an anthem for all of the single ladies out there…and check out Tai’Chi Rose bringing the vocals.
Then there’s ‘Murder’ which has that has serious with an reggae feel with Hip Hop bass. ‘Puddycat’ is another mainstream banger that his purely Hip Hop, that can make is easily seen as pop…
…Nevetheless, the track is still a hit.
Whatever the track, Nadia Rose has shown versatility whilst making her own sound. She can be easily compared to Missy Elliott, who risked to add a little a dance and flamboyance, which in effect, worked in her favour. Nadia Rose follows suit, but with a pinch of feist. Her approach to rapping is one that is fun, comical (similar to deceased Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopez), enthusing her lyrics with other music genres such as dancehall and afrobeats.
It’s worth the wait for Rose to release a 9 track album that will surely be on repeat and on everyone’s playlist. Nadia Rose ‘Highly Flammable’ EP is full of feisty-honest attitude, in an electric style that brings the added spice to Hip/Hop and Grime. She represents the next chapter of urban music and the next biggest MC to follow Lady Leshurr…so be sure to watch this girl as she’s just getting started.
This is super-flammable Nadia Rose.
‘Highly Flammable’ is now available to purchase on iTunes, Spotify and other music platforms
