Nadia Ali has deservedly established herself as a great singer over the last ten years or so, with a slew of dancefloor friendly hits featuring her rich and affecting vocal talents. Her latest project HYLLS sees her collaborate with other liked-minded (but anonymous for now) producers to push their artistic and musical boundaries, as you can hear on Wait For Me.
Organic and cinematic in turn, but with rich electronic textures, Wait For Me has a fragile beauty to it, like a morning dew. Low key and understated, it allows Nadia Ali to explore new, more reflective sounds, but also to showcase her amazing voice. Having heard her front so many club hits, it’s refreshing and pleasantly surprising to discover the wealth of emotion and vocal dexterity she possesses as she reinforces the personal, more confessional lyrics.
Speaking about the song Nadia Ali says; “Wait For Me was inspired by the story of a friend who was in a difficult situation. The song is about asking someone you know you could have an amazing future with to stick around while you take the time to get out of the relationship you’re currently in. It’s about that struggle of weighing out your options about who you should be with and trying to be considerate to both ends”.
