Nina Nesbitt has been under EF’s radar for a few years and rightly so. Teaming up with Spotify for the second time, Nesbitt is joined by a 6-piece gospel choir to record an acoustic version of Justin Timberlake’s, Cry Me a River.
Listen to Nina Nesbitt’s version of Justin Timberlake’s hit single, Cry Me River on Spotify below:
Nina Nesbitt comments: “Loyal to me started very stripped back so I wanted to showcase this in the recording. I’ve always wanted to perform with a choir and with all the harmonies in the track it seemed like the perfect moment. I feel like you can really hear the lyric in the stripped arrangement and choir give it a new energy.
Cry me a river is one of my favourite 00s songs. I wanted to pick a song that was well known, a classic pop hit and turn it into my own style. I love that I could get 3 vocal octaves in there throughout the song and the melodies gave plenty of room to play around. The lyric of the song is actually really sad and emotional so I wanted to make a version that showcased that.”
At 23, the singer didn’t want to rush into making another album for the sake of it, instead she waited for the inspiration to strike and let it slowly take shape organically.
