Written by

UK’s own Nao made her way all the way to the states to catch the 25th anniversary of Essence Fest, and we sat down with her to talk about her sound as an artist from East London. The RCA Records signee described it as electronic, with a little fuse of R&B, funk and soul, as well as a touch with British in her music. When asked who were some artists she’d like to collaborate with, she said Kendrick Lamar, SZA, H.E.R., and SZA. She also told us about her journey as a musician and having always wanted to sing since young, and how she wants people to feel when they listen to her music.
