NICOLAAS – “(Baby I) Need Your Love” single
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved the mix of R&B and hip-hop, especially from the early ‘90s. It’s definitely nostalgic for me. I grew up on hip-hop, and when R&B artists started featuring rappers on their tracks it felt like a perfect fit and a natural progression. I wanted to embody that energy, but wrap the whole thing in my vibe, which is also a mix of retro and contemporary sounds.” – NICOLAAS explained
‘(Baby I) Need Your Love’ contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocalization that will resonate well with fans of OLIVER, Breakbot, and Louis La Roche. The infectious summer tune possesses groovy instrumentation which walks the line between contemporary electronic, nu-disco, vintage ‘90s R&B, and hip-hop elements. Furthermore, “(Baby I) Need Your Love” is NICOLAAS’s first original song released since dropping his remix of Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” song in summer 2021.

NICOLAAS’s single, “Venus & Mars (Freddie Joachim Remix),” which premiered on Majestic Casual, gained nearly one million plays on YouTube and nearly 800K on Soundcloud. Since then, he has broadened his creative horizons.
