Nabiha’s current single, ‘Mind the Gap’, shot straight to no. 1 on the airplay chart and is her 6th top 10 airplay hit to date. With a string of successful hits behind her, Nabiha is ready to move into a new arena with her new smash single ‘Bang that drum’.
The Danish singer has moved into a new league within the last year. The release of her first international album ‘More Cracks’, saw Nabiha enjoying consistent success with the hit singles ’Deep Sleep’, ’The Enemy’, ‘Trouble’ and ‘Never Played the Bass’. Nabiha then went on to win this year’s European Border Breakers Award 2013, quickly followed by her second album ‘Mind the gap’, which included the hits ‘Ask yourself’ and ‘Mind the gap’. The success of both albums, and the accolade received from arguably one of the most prestigious award entities in Europe, proved that Nabiha’s upward momentum would only take her to further heights. Nabiha is now looking forward to introducing a fresh and dynamic sound in her new single ‘Bang That Drum’.
The single ‘Mind the gap’ went straight to no.1 on the Danish Airplay Chart, and has since been certified platinum. ‘Mind The Gap’, together with ’Never Played The Bass’, entered into the top 10 of the most played tracks on Danish radio in 2012, despite the fact it was released at the end of the year! Nabiha took the Danish Music Awards by storm, with her incredible performance of ‘Mind The Gap’, and affirmed her status as the new pop icon on the scene. This year she is back bigger than ever, as illustrated by yet again receiving nominations for ‘Pop Release of the Year’ and ‘Female Artist of the Year’ at the Danish Music Awards. This, has been followed by yet another smash single ‘Ask yourself’ which went in at no.2 on the Airplay chart.
After being a massive hit in Nabiha's own home territory, ‘Mind the gap’ has gone on to be an international hit in such countries as Hungary, Bulgaria, Holland, Belgium, and Poland.
In the UK it went in at no.2 in the Urban Chart, no.3 in Club Chart and no.5 in the Pop Charts.
VH1 is already leading the support of the US by playlisting ‘Mind the gap’ and using her songs for several syncs on TV shows and other media platforms.
The title of ‘Mind The Gap’ was inspired by Nabiha’s visits to London while making the album. She would travel using the London Underground, where you are greeted with 'Mind the Gap' signs at each station, making you aware of the gap between the train and the platform. At the same time, it refers to the space between her front teeth. “It is a huge part of me, and in many African countries it symbolizes ‘good luck’. So the message is that we must take care of each other and ourselves, so everybody arrives safely to their destination”, says Nabiha. ‘Mind the Gap’, defines Nabiha's trademark: uplifting pop music with a focus on poignant song-writing.
Nabiha’s distinct sound along with her West African roots and her colorful upbringing in Copenhagen has shaped her as a unique female figure in the world of pop and soul. Her latest triumph was the single 'Never Played the Bass’, which made it to no. 1 on the Break Out Billboard Club Chart in the US, no. 1 on the UK Urban Chart, no. 3 on the UK Club Chart, no. 7 on the UK pop Chart, as well as no.1 on several European National Charts, including Hungary and Bulgaria. It also caught the attention of famous blogger Perez Hilton, who has championed both ‘Never played the bass’ and ‘Mind the gap’.
This year has been a triumph for Nabiha with no hit of slowing down.
Nabiha is already scheduled to perform more than 80 shows throughout the US, the UK, Finland, Denmark, Hungary and many more. Nabiha has a string of syncs on shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Hollywood Exes, Basketball Wives, and Love & Hip Hop amongst others.
In Denmark/Africa she has received nominations at various prestigious award shows in categories such as ‘New Artist of The Year’, ‘New Talent of The Year’, ‘Female Artist Of The Year’, ‘Listeners Hit of The Year’ and ‘Urban Hit of The Year’, to mention a few! Apart from award shows and nominations, she has also toured with James Morrison, Jason Derulo and Jamie Cullum, and given performances in countries such as Denmark, Poland, United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Germany and the US.
