"Bad Weather" has been released and Nanette has not stopped working. After the project was dropped, Nanette has been climbing the stairs to being a superstar. The accolades having been coming in hot. She finally releases the first visuals from Bad Weather with Vent. This sees her performance arts background come into play as she acts out different characters to portray the emotions of the single. The music is inspired by many of her favorite stars such as Nina Simone, Jhene Aiko and Beyonce. The music video reminds of you of the 90’s with the nostalgic feel to it.
"Bad Weather" is an album debut derived from Nanette’s loneliness, love lost, and grief. While living with her grandmother, Nanette remembers hating the winter months where it would violently storm outside while her grandmother worked late shifts as a nurse in the Eastern Cape. It was during this time that she developed a resentment towards bad weather.
In concept,"Bad Weather" is a euphemism for troublesome thoughts, the types that keep a person’s mind restless in the quiet moments. “All I’m asking, please weather the bad weather with me…I don’t want to be alone,” Nanette says in summary of her debut album.
“I wanted to talk about the state of the dating pool right now. Why is everything so sexualized? So I was just upset that I felt like I was such a queen and I wasn't getting treated right. I also just had so many doubts about the path I was taking career-wise. I finished writing ’Vent’ as I was about to decide whether I was going to sign [to a label] or not. That last part of ‘Vent’ was really me praying and saying, 'I'm about to step into this journey. I don't know if I'm going to be great, or if it's going to shrivel me up and I fade away’, like I say in the song. But I'm about to step into this journey and I really pray I'm not doing the wrong thing. I pray I'm not selling my soul." - Nanette stated to Apple Music.
