Canada-based Nigerian singer Nezsa‘s new song “Trouble” is taken from her upcoming EP, To All The Heartbreakers. It was released on Mr. Eazi’s emPawa platform.
Carrying Nezsa’s soulful vocals, “Trouble” brilliantly blends R&B and Afro pop elements. On it, the singer hits back at a toxic ex.
“‘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 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”.
