After having us hooked in 2015 with her singles “Zillionaire” and “Bad Blood,” our very own Nao has delivered quite-possibly the most impressive debut of 2016.
Steeped in a blend of ’90s R&B and UK garage influence, the songstress has found a uniquely intoxicating modern sound of R&B and funk soul on “For All We Know”. The 18-track LP features fan favourites “Girlfriend,” “Inhale Exhale,” “Bad Blood” and “Fool To Love,” as well as incredible new tracks like “Adore You” feat. Abhi/Dijon, and “Get To Know Ya” co-produced by XL Recordings’ Jungle.
The 28-year-old singer/songwriter/producer grew up in East London, listening to gospel in her local Evangelical church, her brother’s jungle UK garage, and her sister’s 90s and 00s R&B – going on to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
For All We Know is a much needed introspection, one that you learn to embrace confidently with each listen. You can stream the debut album “For All We Know”, via Spotify below, and pick it up on iTunes now.
You definitely need Nao in your life.
