2x Grammy and Brit Award nominated producer and singer-songwriter Nana Rogues releases his latest offering ‘Issues’ with Ms Banks.
Placed over an infectious beat, the sweet-tempered track is Nana Rogues’ first release of the year. ‘Issues’ showcases a new side to both Nana Rogues and Ms Banks who adds a silky vocal led verse to the undeniably smooth single which was premiered by DJ Target on “Targo Embargo” on BBC 1Xtra.
Speaking more on the collaboration, Nana Rogues explains:
“Making Issues was really fun man, I started making the beat in LA and Penned, Vocalled it London… I’ve known and been a fan of the super talent Ms Banks for years, so this collaboration was well overdue. I called her, she came to the studio and killed it!!!”
Raised in Hackney by a Ghanaian mother whose musical palette included everything from Fleetwood Mac to Daddy Lumba, Nana Rogues has been around music his entire life. In 2015 Nana produced an underground street anthem called ‘Trapping Ain’t Dead’ for the emerging South London crew Section Boyz. The viral hit ended up on their breakthrough mixtape ‘Don’t Panic’ and has since been streamed over 22 million times.
Nana then went on to produce “Passionfruit” and “Skepta Interlude” on Drake’s “More Life” which quickly became the most popular song on the project charting at 8 on US Billboard Chart and 3 on the UK Singles Chart. Following the success of ‘Passionfruit’, Nana would score more high-profile placements with Drake (‘Don’t Matter To Me ft. Michael Jackson’), R&B Singer Ella Mai (‘Good Bad’), pop artist Anne-Marie (‘Heavy’) and more. Nana recently received a production credit on J Hus’ #1 album “Big Conspiracy” (‘Play Play ft. Burna Boy’ & ’Cucumber’)
Nana Rogues has received support from the likes of Mistajam and DJ Charlsey on BBC 1Xtra as well as Capital Xtra and an array of specialist stations including Rinse FM, Foundation FM and more. With a lot more music to come in the upcoming months, Nana Rogues is set to be one to watch for 2020!
