Last week we received a very cryptic email from one Nina Las Vegas, inviting us down to a midnight showcase starring a new NLV Records signing as she performed her debut single alongside her labelmate Swick.
We’d been told that the label was preparing for a pop overtake – that ‘NLV RECORDS GOES POP’ was incoming.
We were not disappointed.
The recognisable face of Kota Banks, who was already making massive waves as a songwriter (and had a wonderful feature on this earlier in the year), sang a summery tinged bop that speedily moves between a Tinashe-esque RnB vibe and bubbly pop beauty.
It’s Kota season kids. And biggggg shouts to Nina for continuing to foster a label of icons with no fears.
