On her last project, 2015’s My Fairy Tales, Nneka preached from the "Book of Job." But for her current single “Nothing,” the Nigerian singer/songwriter switches to the New Testament, paraphrasing Romans 8: 38-39 for the song’s powerful chorus. "Nothing can separate me from Your love," she insists, "No heights, no depths, no demons, no angels."

Nneka's vocals are raw, yet delicate and graceful, almost breaking under the weight of her emotion.
