Nanette is announced as Apple Music’s Up Next artist for South Africa

Apple Music today announced South African R&B singer and songwriter, Nanette as the latest artist in its Up Next program, a local version of its global emerging artist platform.

“Being selected for Apple Music Up Next is nothing short of a dream. Being able to shape the future, I wanna see using my reach and music has been such a beautiful experience and to be recognised for that in any way is humbling. Music will forever be the healing force and a universal language. Huge shoutout to Apple for all the love!” says the Universal Music South Africa signee in a press release.

Nanette recently released her debut EP bad weather which finds her revelling in a refined ‘90s R&B sound. Influenced by the soulful voices of Nina Simone, Jhene Aiko, Etta James and Janet Jackson, Nanette developed an innate love for storytelling, which she flexes in the therapeutic lyrics over nine tracks.

As the latest Up Next artist to be spotlighted in South Africa, Nanette will be featured across Apple Music’s South African Up Next playlist.
