May have been one category to many because radio executives at urban music stations wouldn’t play Nivea’s music.
In fact, the singer describes that other would say she was to urban for pop music but to pop for the urban r&b music scene.
Therefore Nivea felt lost, some of her songs were hits but didn’t get the recognition she deserved.
In dealing with the ups and downs of her career she also had to deal with some traumatic and draining relationships with Rapper Lil Wayne.
Through those relationships, she continued to go through ups and downs as well as introducing a child into the mix by having a son with Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne allegedly cheated on her multiple times which only made things worse but the also broke off 2 engagements they had together before her career ended.
In event of ending her career, she focused on raising her son but admitted that it took a lot out of her to stop making music and go a different path.
Now back in the studio, Nivea is more than excited to start singing again.
The shade room posted her new song that was released last Friday (9/28) and is already getting great support.
