Nakala releases Oh Girl

South Coast based Nakala and long-term producer/engineer Brad Baker are a powerhouse duo, with their debut single Paris, surpassing 4 million streams which is no mean feat for a debut. They have been perfecting their sound together for over 6 years, fusing together their eclectic influences to create something truly special.

Earlier this year, Nakala’s debut EP Owe It To You was met by similar reception, garnering over 3 million streams on Spotify which caught the attention of heavyweight curators and label Majestic Casual, who went on to release follow up Do It Right.

The songstress has been building a solid catalogue by releasing consistently and Oh Girl, is the follow up single to Never Changed and You Don’t Know from her upcoming project GIRL. Nakala takes influence from the likes of Usher and Ne-Yo, alongside producer Brad who’s influences are noted as Frank Ocean and Bryson Tiller. Together they bring all the right flavours to make contemporary nu-RnB with an energetic and nostalgic twist likened to that of 90’s RnB. Oh Girl is produced by Jonah [Ayelle and Dom Mcallister] and at only 19 has been working with Nakala and Brad as part of their in-house production team for the last 4 years.

Oh Girl is about that feeling when you’re in that difficult situation after a breakup, with the drama being perfectly sumised by Nakala’s inimitable swagger and propelled by Jonah’s hard hitting and body moving production. Nakala’s distinct flow emits a natural melody and works in perfect synergy with the potent vibe, making this the perfect soundtrack to almost any situation.

Speaking on Oh Girl, Nakala says ”I wrote Oh Girl after I got back with my ex girlfriend and all her friends would say ‘Ohhhh girrrl’. Things were going well for me around that time, life was good and this was my theme song for it”.
