Nasty C And Rowlene Reunite For New Single ‘I Need You’ Off Netflix’s New African Original ‘Blood & Water’ OST

Netflix’s second African original series ‘Blood & Water’ is making waves on the streaming service worldwide and as fans continue to praise the series’ story and cinematography, Nasty C has ensured the soundtrack is top-notch as he teams up with Rowlene yet again for a new track titled ‘I Need You’.

The two previously released the smash hit ‘SMA’ and now, they showcase their special chemistry in the new track. In the track Nasty C does his best to convey the lead character’s hopes, fears and insecurities over subdued piano chords and emotive violins.

The song is a testament to Nasty C’s deft songwriting ability as he is able to rap from the perspective of the opposite sex. The song is a moving composition that reflects the crises that teens and young adults may face today trying to fit it and belong.
