Nija returns with the smooth and sultry summer single “Love Like This.” Track follows her debut solo project, don’t say I didn’t warn you, which has amassed over 34 million combined global streams .
The track finds her mixing joy with vulnerability as she adjusts to the happy reality of finding someone who truly loves and accepts her, baggage and all. Nija wrote the song with frequent collaborator Jack Rochon (6LACK, Jesse Gold) and IamTash (Pop Smoke), who co-produced.
‘Love Like This’ is about a Monica & Quincy, ‘you can have the last slice’ type of love,” says Nija, referring to the two basketball stars whose love story inspired the film Love & Basketball.
The new single comes on the heels of the Jersey native’s early 2022 debut solo project, Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You, which has amassed over 34 million combined global streams. It found a place among the top 10 R&B Albums on Apple Music and in the top 50 of the all-genre album chart. DJ Flex put a Jersey Club spin on the album’s 10 songs for the Jersey Club Remixes, which followed in March.
“Got me wanna post you on the ‘Gram, claim you as my man
Lovin’ me for me and never who I am
A lot of n****s in love with the idea of me but they got no f****in’ idea
The way you make me feel, I got no more exits
Fell for you and wipe them all from my collection
I put my happiness in your posession
So don’t you let it fall down, be protective, oh,”– Nija, ‘Love Like This’
Nija, who is one of Vevo DSCVR Artists To Watch 2022, had written scores of Billboard Hot 100 hits before she had even turned 21. Rolling Stone called her “one of music’s most sought-after songwriters.” Now the three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning contributor is gaining widespread acclaim for her own music and relishing in the freedom to fully express herself.
