Muni Long has released her new song “Nekkid,” featuring YFN Lucci.
“Nekkid” follows two other singles: “Breakin Up” and “Midnight Snack.” The tracks mark Long’s return to the spotlight after serving as a songwriter for pop stars like Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Fifth Harmony and others in the past decade. Her last release was her 2009 debut album Jukebox.
“I knew I wanted to focus on me. I’ve been serving others for the last 12 years, and I started to feel unappreciated and captive,” Long, whose real name is Priscilla Renea, told Vogue about reviving her solo career. “I was like, ‘If I die, I will be so pissed, having never gone after the things that I wanted.’ That’s really what set it off.”
On “Nekkid,” Long and Lucci trade sultry lovestruck lines over a smooth guitar-driven melody. “You make me wanna get nekkid / Get you tatted tell the world that I am taken / Me and you / Vibing while I’m counting your tattoos,” she sings on the chorus.
Long’s new songs are set to appear on her first-ever EP, Black Like This. A release date for the project has yet to be confirmed, though it is expected to arrive by the end of the year.
