Rolling right along with the Nina Sky train, they're hitting us with more free tunes and hell, they're so headed in the right direction, as this is a nonstop express all the way to my most played compilations.
After loving You Ain't Got It (Funk That) earlier this month, the twins are back with the second cut from their upcoming EP The Other Side. Here's what Natalie and Nicole have to say about the track and the project...
It's official, our EP is dropping via www.ninaskyhigh.com on August 3. We're super amped to FINALLY say with confidence we are releasing a new project and also, that we're doing it for FREE as a thank you to everyone who's continued to support our music and movement.
Here is the second single off of our project The Other Side, which is also the title track. It's produced by DJ Yonny and quite frankly, we love it!
Yes, we do love it. Big ups!
It's a new summa jam for you to bump and jump to! Thanks to the lovely tones of Chicago's Kid Sister and the Queens-bred twins of Nina Sky, the title of the track says it all, and yep, I'm now 100% ready for the weekend to begin. Any thoughts of being productive at work today have sufficiently flown the nest. Enter the fist [pumps].
Jumping on a track together seems like somewhat of a no-brainer. All three ladies have a distinct sound and style, yet they are highly complementary of one another. With the sassy street style of KS matching wits with the NS duo's house-cum-hip-hop vibe, Look Out Weekend quickly hits the apex of our "we don't wanna be at work no more" and "I've got the itch to ditch" playlists.
It should be noted that one, this is a remake of Debbie Deb's original tune, Lookout Weekend, and two, this collaboration is featured on the Jersey Shore soundtrack (pre-order here), making this song the best by-product of the reality series, second only to the goddess that is Snooki.
Maybe they can enlist her for a track on the second season's soundtrack? One can dream. Til then, grab this jawn now!
With the early 90s revisited, NYC twintastic duo, Nina Sky are back with a new jam that samples an iconic diss on repetitive radio stations. Last we heard from the pair, a full album was in the works, but with label issues and delays making the possibilities of a full-length all but naught, a new EP is getting readied instead. We're cool with that, cause this track is a burner.
In 1994, rapper Sagat had a minor hit with Why Is It? (Funk Dat). Now, with a flip of the beat and some fresh new lyrics, Nina Sky bring the song into modern melodies and it's definitely got that summa jam steez! As they put it:
"You Ain't Got It [is] a new track we collaborated on w/ DJ Yonny from our upcoming EP The Otherside which drops this Summer!! We sampled one of our favorite dance joints from the 90's, Funk That by Sagat and flipped it w/ some Na**Sky melodies."
