FRESH: ‘Blame’ – Nina Browwn

Nina Browwn needs someone to “Blame”.

by Christopher Smith

Nina Browwn has immersed herself at a very early age in the Toronto music scene. From the start, the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has been able to create unique and powerful songs. She loves meshing different styles of music to express something new, but also tell stories in the most engaging ways. All the while, keeping R&B and Pop true to her heart and soul. Drawing inspiration from greats like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Alicia Keys and Adele, her skills and versatility has landed a few chart-topping hits already, and this is only the beginning.

Currently working with Rob Wells of the prestigious team The Fourth Floor, their creativity and musical knowledge compliments well — in a short period of time, they have managed to come up with amazing new songs yet to be released. Some of the artists The Fourth Floor have worked with include Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Nelly Furtado, Backstreet Boyz and many more making the collaboration with Nina even more exciting. Nina has a global vision in sight; this spring she will be in the South/Caribbean promoting the lively soca remix of “Where Did You Come From?” that she collaborated on with big time soca artist Dynamite, based in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. It doesn’t stop there because this summer she will begin her debut European Tour.

Her latest single, “Blame”, showcases her efforts to hone in and push for a more popular contemporary sound that retains R&B elements. This single will give everyone a chance to see the mastery Nina Browwn has with pop music. It’s a charismatic, exciting, and playful song that you can listen to over and over again. Nina recently took time out to explain more about “Blame”: “The concept was actually about a real life experience I had a couple years ago with a guy who I was dating and thought I was in a relationship with. Turns out so did another girl and we found out about each other. She had been with him for 3 years up to this point and me for 1.5 years. I had suspected something didn’t add up and ended up being right. It turned out that her and I were essentially the same person, lookswise, education, cultural background, we even look very similar and had similar names. her nickname was Nina! crazy stuff but it inspired a great song!”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
