Nadia Vaeh recruits BellaBeats for remix of 'Naked'
Atlanta native and IMA ‘Vox Pop’ winner, Nadia Vaeh has been riding a serious wave of praise so far this year. After the enormous success of her previously shared singles ‘Boomerang’ and ‘RiSE’ earlier this year, she now returns with the BellaBeats remix for her 2019 single ‘Naked’.
Taking the original and beefing up the sound with huge and cacophonous production, this new rework looks to see her emerge from her alt-pop aesthetic and deliver a sound jam-packed with high energy and an explosive direction.
Speaking about the new remix, she said, “When Drew Dugan, my buddy in Colorado, and I linked up to work on a remix, I was pumped when he chose Naked out of all my songs. Writing Naked was such a pivotal moment for me. As I hone in on another personal and professional transformation, it has been a really incredible experience to hear this production metamorphose through his creativity.”
Nadia Vaeh found her way into artistry through modeling and joining a local Atlanta circus. She started singing in their productions, but this was not the beginning of her artistic roots.
Nadia’s love of music and singing began at the age of two and was nurtured by her parents by placing her into a traveling youth choir. She created small productions with her sisters for family and friends. Her mother was a poet who passed on her love of words, which later fueled Nadia’s talent as a lyricist. Nadia’s life took an unexpected turn at the age of 17 when she lost her mother to suicide.
Following this major life change Nadia dismantled her high-school band and strayed from songwriting and singing for years, other than the occasional karaoke. After this tragic loss, she states that she went down a path of self-sabotage and destruction and used relationships and partying to ignore her pain. When she finally decided to begin again with artistry, she was a shell of a person and looking to anyone and anything for answers to deal with her heartbreak. “I made a lot of missteps when I first began my career and had to learn a lot of things the hard way. I would not change this journey for the world though, because songwriting and making music turned my life around.”
With her endless resilience, her music has been ranked at number one on Broadjams top 10 songs list worldwide with her hit “Boomerang”. She has grown into a performer, has had her music recently played on international radio, and is looking forward to sharing more of her music here in the US and around the world.
Vaeh loves to pull inspiration for her music through many genres and sounds from all over the world and has been heavily influenced by island sounds from her years spent in the Netherland Antilles island, Curaçao. She also draws from the roots of her father's homeland of Lebanon and has an affinity for middle eastern music.
She has written well over 100 songs born from the things she has experienced. Her songwriting is not only personally healing but is also a platform to help others heal and make waves with social matters. Her success is a result of a work effort inspired by the successes of other great women she admires. Having written in several genres, her fascination lies with pop because as she put it, “You can tell a story with an important message through pop music and create positive shifts in the world around us as well as just a person’s mood”
