From the internet to the music industry, Nessa Barrett is making moves! She released her album Young Forever on October 14 and it’s everything and more!
“Each and every song on this album is so personal to me,” Nessa explained in a press release following her debut album’s release. “Music is how I cope and writing this album was my therapy. I’ve questioned why I had to go through so much pain in life and always felt like it was a curse. But now I’ve realized it was so I could make songs like these to help others go through theirs.”
The songstress kicked off her budding music career with her debut single, “Pain,” released in July 2020. Since then, she’s released a few other tracks and made headlines with the February 2021 bop “La Di Die,” a collaboration with ex-boyfriend Jaden Hossler and Travis Barker.
“It was really awesome, and actually being able to record with Travis was just a dream,” the songstress told Cool Accidents about the song in April 2021. “It’s been such an amazing experience; I love them both and I’m so blessed to be able to work with them.”
Following the drop of her August 2021 single, “I Hope Ur Miserable Until Ur Dead,” Nessa dropped her first-ever EP, Pretty Poison, in September 2021.
“I want to put something out and I want everyone to love it, but then I also have to understand that everyone has a different taste for things,” Nessa told NYLON in April 2021 of her music. “I mean, I’ve struggled a lot when it comes to ‘Do I want to make music that I want to make, or do I want to make music that other people want me to make?’”
Ultimately, when it comes to her songs and her platform, the New Jersey native just wants to relate to her fans, making them feel seen.
“I want to show everyone that there is a future. You can do something with your life, even if you think that you can’t. There’s always a way out,” she also told the publication. “People that have a following and are looked up to, you don’t see them as human. You don’t see them as a person that could just be walking down the street. So I think that’s something that I value so much because I want to be able to connect and relate to my fans as much as I can.”
