Signed to JJ Abrams’ label Bad Robot, Nnena is the rising Cleveland rapper delivering pure fire bars to empower women. Having recently dropped her first new music of the year we caught up with her to talk fave food on tour, what cheers her up and earliest song memories.

For her latest track ‘Work It Out’ Nnena teamed up with Dave Hamelin on production, who’s also worked with the likes of 070 Shake and Leikeli47, for a searing, sultry summertime hit that truly sets out Nnena’s inimitable, playful flow. Speaking on the track Nnena says, “‘Work It Out’ is a fun song to take your mind off the bullshit. I’m just a sick little bitch and dick is just floating around in my head. I’m goin’ out with my girls, dancing around the town and there’s a stupid guy around. Don’t want to give up the dick—dick is pretty controlling”. Definitely the kind of exuberant energy we could do with right now, turn this up loud and dream of a time when we can go out and enjoy the sunshine (hopefully in the not too distant future!).
