Stream Princess Nokia Returns With Her New Mixtape ‘A Girl Cried Red’.
Destiny Frasqueri better known as Princess Nokia, released her newest mixtape, A Girl Cried Red. The New York rapper described her new mixtape as an “emo mixtape”. In an interview with Dazed, she explained to fans the reason she named her album A Girl Cried Red.
“Blood, like a girl cried blood,” she explained. “It’s taken from my favorite song, ‘The Robot with Human Hair.’ I have a lot of references from this Dance Gavin Dance album, and the first line in the song is ‘Your eyes are bleeding.’ I always loved that image, and it’s a big motif in my work. The mixtape name is supposed to mean a girl cried blood, or a girl cried fury. There’s so many interpretations of what red is.”
In 2016, she broke out with her 1992 mixtape and re-released 1992 as an expanded deluxe project last year, serving as her official debut album. The music video for the lead single from A Girl Cried Red, “Your Eyes Are Bleeding,” also was released today. Directed by Milah Libin, the visual features footage from the past two years of live shows.
