It’s almost time for the arrival of Nneka’s newest full-length album, Soul Is Heavy. Nneka’s previous projects have earned her the title of 21st Century Soul. Soul Is Heavy, her third album, stays true to that makeup by giving listeners an effortlessly balanced combination of hip hop beats, reggae grooves, brass riffs and African-pop. Known for her genuineness and open speech, Nneka touches on subjects such as love to pain, politics, God and more. The album features guest collaborations with The Roots’ Black Thought (‘God Knows Why’) and Ms. Dynamite (‘Sleep’). See the full track listing below. Soul Is Heavy will hit stores and online retailers February 28th.
