LISTEN: Moonchild Sanelly Premieres Brand-New EP ‘Nüdes’

Moonchild Sanelly shows absolutely no sign of slowing down. 2020 has been a big year for the hitmaker. Not only did she wow fans with her appearance in Beyonce’s ‘Black Is King’ visual album, but she also signed an international record deal and after releasing singles ‘Bashiri’ and ‘Thunda Thighs’, the star has dropped her brand-new EP ‘Nüdes’.

The new project, which features collaborations from Patty Monroe and Aramboa, has already been rather controversial. The lead single ‘Bashiri’ includes some playful yet sensitive lyrical content but Moonchild Sanelly has proven time and time again that she will tell her story her own way.

“Bashiri is a song inspired by a woman’s testimony in a church where the pastor is treated like a god whilst monetizing religion. People pay for ‘miracle oil’ whilst the pastor lands at the service in a helicopter, being treated like God himself despite taking money from his congregation,” the singer says. “This song is from the perspective of a Bashiri disciple whose husband was cheating. In the song, this woman is lamenting her relationship and takes her husband to her pastor, who promises that he can perform a miracle to make her husband faithful. Which is ridiculous because infidelity is not solved through prayer and tithing.”

Moonchild adds that the EP includes some of her best material to date and she’s excited to finally have the new tracks available for the world to hear. “The whole EP is about liberation. I have a range of fun experimental sounds mixed with day to day [or night to night ;)] – concepts and stories associated with my mission of liberation,” the singer explains. “Nüdes is a celebration of sharing the best parts of our curves and corners with someone we trust, and exploring how this can turn into a nightmare if the person you trusted chooses to exploit it. People who were just doing something secretive and fun are unaware that at some stage those moments can be used against them & leaked without their consent – as explored in ‘Newtown Chips’.”
