As much of a bummer this is, especially to the B&L fans who were promised a Sophomore Album and new music from Nyanda and Nailah together as a group, it seems there still are some perks to goin' Solo.
Nyla was first signed to Kymani Marley's Label, 'Konfrontation Muzik', in '013, where her Debut Single "Stand Up" (Written by Bloodline, her writing group with her sisters), premiered. Although it was never officially released via iTunes or any other Music Distributors, a Music Video came in to save the day.
Soon after, Nyla's Second single "Body Calling" was released in 2014, along with a Video, and became her first iTunes and Official release as a Solo act. She even toured Europe because of it's success. Around the same time, she collaborated with Sean Paul for his Full Frequency album on "Pornstar", and African Artist Redsan's "Touch me There" single.
Unbeknownst to us, Nyla was already in the makin' to debut Internationally with her Original entitled "Light It Up". Diplo's Musical group, Major Lazer, pushed the vision of the song even further, including not only Nyla's Original on their Peace Is The Mission album, but also releasing a Remix Version featuring Fuse ODG as their Second Biggest Hit (After "Lean On").
LIGHT IT UP gained quick International fame and introduced Nyla to places such as India, Australia and even Cuba, increasing her already Huge fanbase. Currently the Singer is performing at the COACHELLA Music Festival, alongside other Caribbean acts like Sean Paul, Machel Montano and of course, MAJOR LAZER.
Secret Tidbit for the true B&L/Nyla Fans: Nyla has another upcoming song with MAJOR LAZER ...I cant give the title yet, but STAY TUNED! It's even hotter than Light It Up!
