Nia Chennai releases new single ‘So Pretty When You Cry’

London-based R&B singer, songwriter and artist Nia Chennai shares her new single ‘So Pretty When You Cry’, out everywhere today.

Off the back of the release of her debut EP Diary Is A Waste Of Paper last Autumn, Nia returns with a playfully upbeat slice of R&B heaven, with hints of 2000’s pop and reggae influences. Lyrically, the track explores making light of that first encounter with an ex-partner.

Nia says, “I made this song by staying truthful and relatable in my lyrics as I always do. It is key for me. I had recently encountered an ex and wanted to make light of it. I had also been listening to Lily Allen – “Smile” and Lauryn Hill – “That Thing” so I knew I wanted trumpets and something a bit upbeat. I was heavily inspired by the reggae elements and since I’m half Caribbean. It’s always nice to pay homage to my culture.

“When your ex comes crawling back, don’t take them! You should always want more for yourself. If you want love, find someone that is loyal, respectful and brings you peace.”
