Dark pop music global star Nessa Barrett is back with her brand new debut EP “pretty poison“
Nessa’s new EP pretty poison EP is preceded by the rapidly breaking single “i hope ur miserable until ur dead.” Right out of the gate, it was at #8 on Spotify and trended at #9 on YouTube in addition to debuting in the Top 40.
Not to mention, she made her very first entry on the Billboard Hot 100.Upon impact, it also stood out as the #1 Most Added at Alternative Radio and is rapidly climbing the chart ahead of its Top 40 impact on September 13th.
Nessa says, “‘pretty poison’ tells the story of my life over the past year since moving to LA, experiencing fame & dealing with social media, toxic friendships/relationships, my mental health & personal struggles and falling in love with someone who really understands me. i’ve been working so hard on the music, visuals & have put my heart/soul into this project. so excited to finally share it with the world!”
Illuminating the scope of her signature style, she leans into a lullaby melody on the darkly catchy “grave,” while “i wanna die” feels tailormade for the closing credits of a classic nineties slasher flick. Her jazzy intonation adds raw emotion to “scare myself” as she admits, “Sometimes I even scare myself.” Over wobbling distortion on the title track “pretty poison,” she urges, “Say my name, say my name like you know it’s holy.”
Her collaboration with jxdn “la di die,” produced by the legendary Travis Barker. The hit single has amassed over 200 million streams, cracked the Top 15 at alternative radio, and reached #27 at top 40 radio.
The duo made their late-night television debut performance with “la di die” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and also performed on The Ellen Degeneres Show. The song has received widespread acclaim from MTV, Elite Daily, Buzzfeed and Nylon declared, “As the last line of ‘la di die’ says: She’s gonna be a superstar.”
