As fans know, Nessa’s foray into singing and songwriting came a little over a month after she and ex-boyfriend Josh Richards revealed that that they broke up in a seriously emotional YouTube video. At the time, the influencers explained that they needed to “mature” and “grow as people” before being in such a serious relationship. As for why they decided to give fans such an in-depth look at their breakup, well, Josh explained it was because the last thing he wanted was “lies or rumors being spread” about the split. After their breakup video hit the internet, Nessa spoke to People Magazine about their decision to split.

“Josh and I are both very saddened by the breakup, but we’ll always be there to support each other in our personal endeavors and wish nothing but love and joy for one another,” she told the publication.
