Biography

She’s been hailed as “the new age Mary J Blige,” NaKisha never pretends, she writes and sings from her own heart about life,love and heartache. Born in the small town of Coatesville,PA, she knew she wanted to pursue music after performing at various talent shows in school. It was a suprise to her peers to hear the quiet little girl belt out "Hero" by Mariah Carey with ease and expertise. Artists like Aretha Franklin, Mary J Blige and EnVogue accelerated her drive to sing. She emulated their soulful sounds and that fueled her passion to follow her heart and go after her dreams.

Now at the age of 23, this petite vocal powerhouse has grown through creative collaboration with her producer Arhon Grier. She has matured into an amazing singer/songwriter that remains influenced by her soulful roots in R&B. She's been dubbed "a womans voice" by many of her fans because her lyrics are honest and real. This is evident in the smash hit "Not Runnin Back" a song that speaks to the hearts and minds of people all over. "Not Runnin Back" was also named "Track of The week" by Garageband.com. After her independent self-titled debut EP album was released, NaKisha got to work performing in numerous showcases and clubs from PA to NJ including Grape Street ,Reef Carribean Lounge just to name a few. With each perfomance she leaves audiences wanting to know more.

People are drawn to her sound which is a break from the monotony of today's R&B. During a time when the airwaves are congested with gimmicks, one-hit wonders and no originality, NaKisha demands nothing but the best from herself, and delivers time and time again.

NaKisha isn't chasing a lifestyle of instant celebrity, and because of this her sincerity shines through in her music. Her independent style is sure to attract fans along the way as she gains momentum and takes the music industry by storm. This is just the beginning so remember the name, you will never forget her voice.

Lyrics

Not Runnin Back

Written By: Nakisha Smith

So here you come to wreck my life
When I finally get some peace of mind
Tell me why you don’t wanna see me happy baby
I gave you to many chances
You proved you couldn’t do me right
So now you’re back to apologize
And its supposed to be alright hell no
CHORUS
Not runnin back
Not runnin back to you
Not runnin back
Not runnin back to you
I’m not runnin back to you

I’m not the same girl you knew
Grew stronger every time you hurt me
Cant be your fool forever
And your lies don’t faze me
So just stay there on your knees
Don’t you dare call out my name when I leave
If you really love me like you say you do
Then set me free babe
CHORUS
BRIDGE
So here you come with your sad excuse
And I’m supposed to feel bad for you
After all the bull shit you put me through
Hell no
So here you come again to wreck my life
Cause you wanna see me weak
And make me cry
But I promise
I wanna make it clear for you
Ill never shed another tear for you
And you will never hurt me again
CHORUS

I Remember

Written By: NaKisha

"I Remember"

I wake up sometimes
think I'm loosin my mind
the world just don't feel the same
I walk around in a daze
I live everyday
to put you in my past
still I feel the lonliness
and I wish
I had you back

****CHORUS****
Then I remember what
My momma taught me
Just cause you love somebody
Don't mean they have to love you back
so I guess I had
to learn that the hard way
still I can't believe
that you don't want me back

Is it reality
we shared our last kiss
I thought we'd always be together
just can't wrap my mind around it
you don't call no more
am I the only one in love
oh why oh why please tell mw why
don't you want me no more

****CHORUS****

Then I remember what
My momma taught me
Just cause you love somebody
Don't mean they have to love you back
so I guess I had
to learn that the hard way
still I can't believe
that you don't want me back

repeat 2x
then fade

"WHY"

Written By: NaKisha

I sit and try to talk to you
everytime you come home
you act like you aint got no time
and your always gone
everytime I tell you I miss you
I still end up alone
lately I been thinkin maybe I should find me a friend to call
**BRIDGE**
You keep takin for granted that I'll always be here for ya baby
you keep takin for granted that I'll always understand ya baby
before you realize what you it
will be too late
maybe you should take the time out
to listen to me
listen to me

****CHORUS****
When I'm leavin packin my bags
don't come askin me why
when you see me out
with another guy
dont act like I didn't let you know
so don't come askin me why
why I'm leavin you
why I'm tired of you
why I'm through with you

I tell you I want some quality time
then your out with your boys
when I finally get you to myself you act so annoyed
so tell me why should I stick around
just to be ignored
you only call on me
when you get horny
or when ya get bored
**BRIDGE**
You keep takin for granted that I'll always be here for ya baby
you keep takin for granted that I'll always understand ya baby
before you realize what you it
will be too late
maybe you should take the time out
to listen to me
listen to me

****CHORUS****
When I'm leavin packin my bags
don't come askin me why
when you see me out
with another guy
dont act like I didn't let you know
so don't come askin me why
why I'm leavin you
why I'm tired of you
why I'm through with you
