It’s been a while since we’ve heard any new music from Princess Nokia, which is, undeniably, a shame. In fact, all we’ve had to tide us over since the 2018 mixtape A Girl Cried Red – and, more importantly, the 2017 album 1992 – is a rerelease of her debut record, Metallic Butterfly. On a more positive note, it looks pretty likely that that’s going to change sometime soon, as the New York rapper has hinted on her Instagram.
“I know I’ve been very quite (sic) about music for some time now,” she writes in the post, “but that’s because I’ve been privately redeveloping my artistry & creative management team for the last 5 months.”
She goes on to explain that she’s been independent through her whole career so far, meaning she’s not had a record deal and has written and retained the rights to “100%” of her musical catalogue. (Coming up, she turned down five record deals, showcasing her fierce independence.)
Now, though, she says: “I decided that it was time I cultivate a stronger musical environment and business team that would allow me to elevate Princess Nokia in a way I could never do before.”
Then, the good news: apparently she’s found a new team to partner with and “new music is in fact on the way.” It doesn’t sound like we’ll be waiting too long for the release, either, which she says is coming “in the near future”.
