In celebration of scoring his second consecutive Top 40 single, with the utterly infectious R&B banger Nice To Meet Ya, Wes Nelson this week shares with fans an exclusive stripped back performance of the track, recorded live at the Assault and Battery Studios in North London.
Performing alongside a string quartet, french oboe and piano, the stunning new version of the single exudes an air of sophistication – it’s classical influence and innovative orchestral arrangement transforming the song into an all together different sonic space, with Nelson’s super smooth, soulful vocal soaring across the top line of the track with ease.
New To Meet Ya (Stripped)
Written by Wes, produced by rising beatmaker Ayo Beatz (Fredo, Young M.A, KSI) and featuring Yxng Bane, Nice To Meet Ya serves as the follow up to 2020’s See Nobody – Nelson’s musical debut, which hit #3 on the Official UK Singles Chart and has to date accumulated over 70 million streams globally, with over 38 million streams on Spotify and over 13 million video views.
Commenting on his approach to, and hopes of, maintaining long lasting success within the industry, Wes says: “I know it’s not going to happen overnight, but consistency is key. The best artists are the ones who stay true to themselves; authenticity is everything to me and that’s what will take me all the way.”
