Princess Nokia – Gemini
New York based rapper Destiny Frasqueri aka Princess Nokia has become one of the most exciting voices over the past few years. Her evolution as an artist, songwriter and performer is evident with Nokia unveiling another layer of her personality and style with each release. That’s exactly the case with ‘Everything Is Beautiful’ and ‘Everything Sucks’, two albums that were released back to back earlier this year. Both albums portrayed the artist’s dualities – the former, a presentation of smoother cuts that showcased her more sensitive side whilst the latter presents darker, rawer cuts.
For COLORS, Princess Nokia delivers a slice from ‘Everything Is Beautiful’, with a spirited performance of stand out single ‘Gemini’. Working her magic over a classic hip-hop beat penned by Tony Seltzer, Princess Nokia’s flow and delivery are infectious as she spits her truth in that soothing lower register. Check out the chilled out performance up top and be sure to put ‘Everything Is Beautiful’ and ‘Everything Sucks’ on rotation to get the full Princess Nokia experience.
