SEVANA SWITCHES THE NARRATIVE
“NOBODY MAN” VIDEO AND SINGLE ON NEW
OUT TODAY JUL 19
Soulful singer Sevana debuts her brand new single “Nobody Man” (In.Digg.Nation Collective/Easy Star Records) today (Jul 19). On the bubbly, energetic track, she is changing the narrative by not giving into stereotypes of disrupting relationships. Sevana effortlessly flows between her soaring vocals and bold Jamaican patois, blending traditional R&B/soul that inspires her sound and the Caribbean’s tropical percussive rhythms she was raised on.
Following her 2018 hit “Summer Love,” she passionately delivers yet another powerful statement through her new single “Nobody Man,” produced by JLL. “I wrote ‘Nobody Man’ after a series of unfortunate girlfriends thought I wanted their man, which could never be the case,” Sevana says firmly. “‘Nobody Man’ challenges the narrative of ‘tek a gyal man,’ which is essentially a braggadocio culture around taking another person’s husband or boyfriend,” the multi-talented singer/songwriter adds.
The video for “Nobody Man,” directed by Wade Rhoden is a vibrant showcase of colorful 90’s inspired style and infectious dance routines. Choreography is a new layer to Sevana’s skill set, yet she commands the camera like a seasoned veteran. “While I’m here I want to use all my gifts to support my purpose, which is to create! I know it’s not typical but I want to use everything I have to support the music I’m doing and the messages I’m trying to communicate,” says Sevana.
Sevana is part of the In.Digg.Nation Collective, the label and management company founded by GRAMMY-nominated Protoje. She recently joined him on her visit to New York. She gave audiences—big and small—a first-hand taste of her vocal prowess. Rolling Stone was treated to a private performance by Sevana, Protoje, and buzzing newcomer Lila Iké; plus visits at TIDAL, Pandora and Red Bull Radio introduced audiences stateside to Sevana’s captivating presence. Her intimate set at this month’s Everyday People party/artist showcase was a powerful prelude to her rousing performance alongside Protoje at the annual BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! concert in Prospect Park (5,000+ reported attendees). In August, she heads to Europe for her own coveted spots on some of reggae’s premier festivals, including Rototom (Spain) and Boomtown (UK).
Sevana’s “Nobody Man” is available on all digital platforms.
As the next big star from the In.Digg.Nation Collective, Sevana is poised to reach great heights with her limitless vocal range, beauty, and soulful depth. Iconic singers like Celine Dion, Beyoncé, and Anita Baker have inspired the Jamaican-born chanteuse, and now Sevana looks to follow in their footsteps. She is the quintessential triple threat talent – singer, actress, and model – making her Jamaica’s “it girl.” Sevana got her musical break In 2008 with the girl group SLR, placing third place on Digicel Rising Stars (Jamaica’s equivalent of American Idol). Then, she was introduced to international audiences through her feature on “Sudden Flight” from Protoje’s 2014 album Ancient Future. She has since released a self-titled solo EP in 2016 and the infectious single “Sometime Love” in 2018. In addition, she played the starring role in the groundbreaking Jamaican web series, Losing Patience. Her photogenic, natural look has made her a favorite of photographers and fashion labels. So far Sevana has earned notoriety by The FADER, Complex, VICE/Noisey, BBC (1Xtra) LargeUp and has graced the cover of RIDDIM Magazine’s SPRING 2019 issue.
