2021 is the year of new music, and we can’t get enough of it. Nessa Barrett has been catching eyes since the release of ‘la di die’ ft Jxdn at the beginning of this year, and again with ‘counting crimes.’ We can’t get enough of her music, and she’s just given us more to hold. That’s right, Nessa Barrett just released an EP, pretty poison, and we can’t stop listening to it!
pretty poison is telling us Nessa’s story, and lets us learn more about who Nessa is and what she’s made of!
pretty poison tells the story of my life over the past year since moving to LA, experiencing fame and dealing with social media, toxic friendships and 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 and have put my heart and soul into this project. so excited to finally share it with the world!Nessa Barrett on pretty poison
The EP features seven equally amazing tracks, and it’s impossible to pick a favorite. Nessa Barrett has a talent for leaving us breathless. Each song draws us in, making us crave more. (She needs to tell us her secrets!) From the beginning to the end, we’re hanging on to every word. Since we can’t choose favorites, we’ve chosen a few songs to tell you all about.
‘pretty poison’ is the first song on the EP, and rightfully so. The song talks of rumors and essentially saying the person did more harm than good. We’re definitely going to be singing the lyrics at the top of our lungs whenever we’re alone. (You can’t blame us, this song is amazing.) We may or may not have already memorized the words. (We proudly memorized the words.)
In the middle of the EP, song number four to be exact, is where we first hear ‘grave.’ This song has a bit of a different feel than the three songs before it. It’s a love song that shares the truth of finding safety in the one you love. It has a haunting sound that we absolutely love! We’ve added it to all of our playlists and can’t wait to listen to it repeatedly. (Not that we haven’t already.)
Using this song to end out the EP was nothing but a stroke of genius. It’s a short song but that doesn’t stop us from loving it! In the song, she says that after all the pain she’s finally happy and we’re so happy for her! At the end of the one-minute track, Nessa adds what sounds like a voicemail of her mother, and we absolutely love it. It’s short but it’s sweet and everything we needed to end the EP. We would even call it a perfect ending.
Nessa Barrett is insanely talented, and pretty poison proves it to the world. We here at the Honey POP can’t wait to hear more of her amazing music in the future. We’re so grateful that Nessa chose to share her story with us in the form of pretty poison. Her success makes us beyond happy, and we’re excited for the great things to come!
