Listen to Niia's "Unmistakably Brilliant" (UPROXX) New Album 'II: La Bella Vita,' Out Today
Today, Niia releases her sophomore album ‘II: La Bella Vita.’ Co-produced by Niia herself and Rhye’s Robin Hannibal, and named one of Harper’s Bazaar's 15 Albums To Look Forward To In 2020, ‘II: La Bella Vita’ is a daring 13-song collection of slick, yet vulnerable R&B that UPROXX has called “unmistakably brilliant…an even more fully realized project than her debut.” Listen to ‘II: La Bella Vita’ here: https://orcd.co/labellavita
Amid explorations of heartache and resentment, Niia finds humor in her tragic love for "sad boys" and rebound hookups on ‘II: La Bella Vita,’ a Valentine’s Day album for the brokenhearted. “I’m a bitter lover,” she told The Cut.
Niia recently spoke with PAPER about closure, her love for the Sopranos, and dodging the marriage bullet. Listen to her song “If You Won’t Marry Me Right Now,” which earned a co-sign from The New York Times, here: https://youtu.be/ygI9TN6tmCQ
Last night, Niia celebrated the release of ‘II: La Bella Vita’ with a secret, immersive dinner party at a mansion in the Hollywood Hills. It was a family affair, complete with a homemade Italian meal by chef Jason Beliveau of LA's Girl & The Goat.
Niia will play select shows in support of ‘II: La Bella Vita,’ dates to be announced soon.
"A heartbreak-infused collection full of modern, soulful iterations of the torch song"
“Niia takes her feelings and beautifully turns them into something purposeful”
“Niia steps out of her comfort zone in II: La Bella Vita, punching up the tempo”
“Trickling, groove-heavy trip-hop”
