Nina Nesbitt is a Scottish artist that many of you may have already heard as she has charted on the UK top 40 in the past.
‘Somebody Special’ is the young artist’s latest single with the original which has garnered over 1 million views on YouTube to date.
Nina’s normally quaint production has been switched up this time for a bunch of hard basses, reverberated synths, banging percussion and a drop with hella power. The production goes hard but does not deter attention from the stunning vocals that we love. R3HAB, the Dutch DJ and producer, has given Nina Nesbitt’s latest single, ‘Somebody Special’, his trademark electronic stamp.
We think this is one of the best remixes we’ve ever heard which is quite a thing to say.
Written in Nashville with Dan Muckala, ‘Somebody Special’ is a love song with a twist – it’s about a relationship which inspires someone to rediscover their own self-worth and potential. It sounds like a global smash: all slowly percolating verses, taut rhythmic grooves and a chorus you want to live inside.
Somebody Special is about when you’ve been feeling a bit low and then you meet this person who changes everything,” explains Nina.
“It’s about those first few months where everything you do together feels so exciting. You could be sitting in a dive b
ar drinking cheap cider, driving about in a broken down car, or sitting at home in your tracksuit, but you somehow feel like you’re having the best time because the feeling of falling in love sugar coats everything.”
Nina also announces a new UK Tour in May, which includes a headline date at London’s Heaven on 15th May.
