"September 10th my EP will be dropping," Nessa shared. "That's why I'm freaking out." Nessa says she was trying to find her sound with the releases we've already heard from her, "and I think I figured that out with this EP. It's a whole new, different era and genre. It sounds so cohesive but it does sound so different than any of my other releases. It sounds the most 'me' than anything I've ever put out."

"It caused me so much anxiety making it," Nessa says. "Me and my team really try to stay on top of things like making videos like a month out before it even has to be submitted, having everything organized. But this video just happened fairly last minute, but like not. It felt last minute to us. We went through a handful of directors... out of nowhere we reached out to Hannah Lux Davis and found out that she was following me and was lo-key a fan and really loved my work."
Nessa broke the internet last weekend when she joined her boyfriend jxdn for a surprise duet of their track “la di die” on the Lollapalooza 2021 main stage immediately causing the pair to trend across social media.

"Lollapalooza was so insane," she tells us. "I've only been to like one other festival in my life which was way smaller than this. Just being there seeing jxdn perform in front of thousands and thousands of people was just incredible. The fact that I got to go on stage with him and we got to do 'la di die' that was just unbelievable. It was just so awesome seeing everyone in the crowd sing back... it was so cool."
Nessa's Pretty Poison EP arrives on September 10.
