Nadia Rose is a 23 year old rapper from West Croydon making huge waves in the music industry right now. With numerous singles under her belt already; she recently released an album called Highly Flammable (which we’re obsessed with btw) with her trademark double hair buns on the cover.
Nadia first caught the public’s eye with her music video, Station, which saw her dancing on railway tracks with a train pulling into a platform behind her. Her bold and sassy attitude has since followed her into newer songs such as ‘Skwod’, which has recently been featured on a Rimmel London advert.
Since then, she’s been nominated for a BBC Sound of 2017 award, has opened for Busta Rhymes and performed at some major festivals including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, BoomTown and Love Saves The Day. She’s continuously raising the bar for female rappers with her badass tracks and IDGAF attitude in a scene typically dominated by men.
With being billed for festivals this year including Parklife, Sonar, Lost & Found, Bestival and Standon Calling; it’s clear this girl isn’t slowing down. We got chatting to Nadia to see what she’s been up to & what she’s got planned for the future…
