Neck of The Woods
Tickets on sale - 9am, October 3.
Nadia is too busy travelling the world (including taking the stage at Northern Bass 17/18!) to write a new bio - so we grabbed this interview from Standard instead!
Can Nadia Rose find a quiet moment? The 25-year-old Croydon MC dropped her latest track, WUT2, last week, on which the hook crackles “usually I’m a busy b****, but I’ve got time today”.
Admittedly, her life is frantic. Since breaking out with Mobo-winning Skwod in 2015, Stormzy’s cousin has won the BBC’s Sound of 2017 and headlined Glastonbury’s Park Stage. We caught up during some down time.
Latest Skwod addition?
I met Stella McCartney when I performed at her catwalk show in Milan this year and was like: “Wow, we actually get on, this is strange. It’s not just business. We vibe.”
A moment you’d like framed?
Sitting at the Mobo awards in 2015 as they announced the award for best video. I was preparing my loser’s face, keeping it nice and calm, when they said my name. My expression was a picture.
My cousin Stormzy and I will happen, it’s just a question of when. But dream? Jamiroquai. I’m an old soul. I’m really down with music from back then.
