The single perfectly encapsulates her personality and unique sound. Furthermore, the Philly native ensured that the lyrics would be relatable to as many people as possible.
Nyae is only in the early days of her career, but she has proven that she is here to stay with her debut EP “Mixed Culture.” Despite only being in the game for some few years, the artist already knows how to captivate her audience. She wants to give listeners a sense of belonging and familiarity through her music.
