Young Cocoa has been co-signed by some of the biggest names in K-Pop, scoring placements in curated playlists all across Asia. The 24-year-old singer/songwriter has just released a new single and is looking forward to continuing his momentum.
“Nova” uses a bossa nova inspired instrumental as the canvas for a crossover love song. The track is accompanied by visuals that depict a performance intended to be about or to the artist’s love interest.
“We wanted to create a song that was an easy listen, had a lot of bounce, and felt ‘bubbly’ in the same way the lyrics were written,” reveals the rising Asian rapper. “Nova’s creation really just started off of the exploration of a different sound and progressed into a song that I wrote about having an innocent crush, or puppy love. The title is directly inspired by my favorite snack, Nova, and the use of Bossa Nova elements in the production.”
