Last week, Nina Nesbitt released her new single The Best You Had, the follow-up to The Moments I’m Missing which has surpassed 2 million Spotify streams to date.
Set to a sombre piano melody overlain by pulsating beats and memorable hook, The Best You Had candidly explores the insecurity felt when an ex finds somebody new. Defined by the psychological conflict between a bruised ego and knowing that the relationship is best left in the past, the emotive track is yet another example of Nina’s songwriting ability, marking a huge progression in her maturity from her debut.
Speaking about the track, Nina says: “The Best You Had is a song that portrays the complicated feelings you have about an ex moving on. The fear that the new person is better than you. Smarter. Prettier. That they could possibly love them more than they loved you.”
With the release of the track, fans have the opportunity to unlock the official video by following Nina and streaming the song on digital platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music. The more they follow and stream, the quicker they reach the target, at which point the video will be revealed for all to see. See the progress HERE.
Since announcing her return with the release of The Moments I’m Missing, Nina has proven that there is an unrelenting demand for her heartfelt, autobiographical pop. Alongside The Moments I’m Missing clocking up over 2 million streams, Nina’s headline show at London’s Camden Assembly sold out in under five minutes. Fans from New York to São Paulo to Stockholm have come out in force to build Nina’s global street team, intimating an unstoppable new era in her career.
