LA-based singer NJOMZA drops her latest atmospheric, soulful EP LIMBO. This hypnotizing 7-track offering touches on love and heartbreak through NJOMZA’s lush and tender tone. Her name translated means ‘something new that has just been created’ and the EP showcases a new growth within, as she becomes a more self-assured person. The release features some astonishing musical talents such as Metro Marrs (Quality Control), Ari Lennox, Russ, and WurlD.
Commencing with “winter in atlanta” ft. Russ the haunting track immediately captivates. Detailing a hot hookup, the intoxicating tune is about knowing you are not someone’s one and only, but they will always be there to call when you are lonely. There is a smoldering passion oozing throughout the sensual piece. The title track “limbo” is a smooth release that has a similar message to the opener. Also describing a sexual encounter, it focuses on a partnership that moved quickly. Finishing with the eccentric “Tidal Wave” ft. Ari Lennox, it satisfies you with its light, soothing sounds. The song centers on the ups and downs that come with relationships. The stunning visuals showcase NJOMZA and Lennox robbing a house at night. All glammed up and flaunting money, the two are the ultimate partners in crime.
Born in Germany to Kosovar-Albanian parents, but raised in Chicago, the talent rapidly rose to success when she caught the attention of Mac Miller. Recently penning songs for Ariana Grande’s thank u, next album, she continues to make a name for herself in the music scene. NJOMZA’s new masterful new EP further cements her place in the industry.
