Nessly Records New Song in Front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris
It’s not every day that an artist records a song at one of the most iconic locations in the world, and rapper Nessly did just that. The Atlanta native recorded a new song in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris on Monday (Sept. 24).
While standing in front of the famed iron lattice tower, Nessly positioned himself in front of the mic and spit some lyrics while glancing at his phone. Tourists gathered around and took in the moment. He also shared the moment in an Instagram post. “First song recorded at Eiffel Tower. Real vocals used.. came back sounding cleaner than your studio recording,” he wrote in the caption.
“I am in Paris, off the untraditional route/Two Bank of America accounts, a 9-to-5 is something I know nothing about/500 songs in the vault, like pride day they come out/I am in Paris, don’t think the semester’s wasted/All my time in the basement, well-deserved vacation/Ex wanna blow up my phone with unsolicited text/He blowin’ up my phone, I call in a terrorist threat,” Nessly raps over a saxophone-inspired beat while rocking a Balenciaga hoodie.
This isn't the first unusual place Nessly has recorded vocals. Earlier this month, the rhymer was waiting for his flight to board in the airport and decided to spit some lyrics into the mic. "at the airport.. what’s your excuse??" he wrote in a video of the moment on Instagram.
While he's working on new music, the Republic Records signee released his latest album, Wildflower, earlier this year. On the 13-track LP, which was produced by Take a Day Trip and TM88, the “Wolverine” artist dived deeper into his insecurities and wanting to be relatable.
“Even with the cover, that’s why you see me surrounded by all the girls—I feel like I disappointed all these girls," he told XXL at the time of the its release. "It’s almost to show like, while I’m shining, the people I’m supposed to love aren’t as well off as me. It all ties in to being honest with yourself and exposing yourself. And I feel like a lot of people can relate to that.”
