Emerging pop star NERIAH has released her newest single, melodic breakup anthem “FALLING 4 SOMEBODY.” Debuting with a New Music Daily cover and Zane Lowe interview on Apple Music One, the track is creating plenty of excitement leading up to NERIAH’s third EP, No One Cries Forever, out March 17 via Create Music Group. 

Who were your musical influences growing up?

    ⁃    Sara Bareilles, Chelsea Cutler, Adele,  Colbie Caillat, and Julia Michaels

Tell us about your new single Falling 4 Somebody and what inspired it? 

    ⁃    The inspiration behind my new single “FALLING 4 SOMEBODY” is about the experience of falling for someone who just isn’t good for you. It’s about that person who treats you poorly, doesn’t meet your basic needs, and makes you feel like the problem is all yours. Writing this song was about the moment of realization that you deserve better, and that it’s time to move on and find someone who will treat you right. The song is a powerful anthem for anyone who has been in this situation and wants to empower themselves to find love that is truly deserving. I hope that it will be a source of strength and inspiration for anyone who needs it.

What can you tell us about your EP ’No One Cries Forever’

    ⁃    It defiantly shows a different side of my songwriting. This project is special because there are a lot of different sides of the NERIAh sound and songwriting that I wanted to show the world before going into my album.

What is the one piece of advice you would give to someone wanting to pursue a career in music?
