Fly.Union's Jay Swifa is producing for a new R&B singer named Nana B. Our first taste of their partnership is "Crazy Baby," a low-key anthem for awkward breakups with that headcase you just can't seem to shake. I haven't heard a song like this out of Columbus before, so I'm pretty intrigued to hear what else is coming on "The Rm 102 EP," due out later this spring. - Columbus Alive

Nana Boamah-Acheampong ’11, known professionally as Nana B., always knew he wanted to make it big in the music world. A recent graduate of Wooster, he has made impressive strides towards that goal since he joined the real world in 2011. Nana B.’s first EP, “Rm 102,” came out one week ago on Sept. 13.
The EP is based on Nana B.’s four years at Wooster. His first dorm room, Babcock 102, is the inspiration for the title. The EP is representative of his time at the college, particularly how “a bunch of different things [are] happening at once.” Much of the music follows this pattern, always with several elements layered on top of each other to form a cohesive sound.
Nana B. grew up in the Columbus area, but his family is from Ghana. He was recently featured in Vibe Magazine, who praised his track “Work For You” as “a cool, trippy tune that could give The-Dream a run for his money.”
At Wooster, Nana B. wasted no time trying to advance his music career. He and a friend started a production company called “Deydreamin Productions” while they were at school, Nana B. as the artist and his partner as the manager. They proceeded to apply for and receive a grant from the Wooster Center for Entrepreneurship so that they could work on the project while they were still in school.
After graduation, Nana B. returned to Columbus to work for Nationwide Insurance, while continuously working on his music during off hours. He focused on making connections so that he could get his material out there. He moved to Chicago at the beginning of this year and continued to try to advertise his name.
Finally, Nana B. contacted a group called Fly Union, one of his favorite hip-hop groups, through Twitter. He gave them samples of his work and the group decided to produce his EP for him. Nana B. wrote the lyrics and chose from Fly Union’s original beats and they all collaborated to apply additional elements. From then on it was a process of working and reworking the compositions which was complicated by a prolonged illness of Nana B.’s. He regained his health soon before Fly Union was supposed to leave the windy city for California, so after that they worked harder than ever to get the EP out on time.
When asked to describe the style of his music, Nana B. replied, “I’d call it ‘ill pop.’”
According to Nana B., Wooster has a lot of talented people who have the potential to be successful in music. His advice is to “let as many people hear your stuff as possible, and never be satisfied.” He emphasizes the importance of meeting people (“it’s who you know”) and of revising over and over.
Nana B. is confident that his music career will continue to gain momentum. Though he’s in the early stages of breaking onto the scene, he already has some promising reviews. He hopes that his first EP, as a tribute to his time at Wooster, has the potential to inspire musicians on campus to follow in his footsteps.

Nana B sings a song I think most people in Columbus can relate with . You’ve been hanging out with someone for 8 months. You need to get rid of them. But they don’t take the hint. I think this especially works for Spring. You started dating someone in the winter cause that’s a natural thing to do. The nice weather hits about the same time you realize they are insane. You just need them to get the away from you.

Jay Swifa of Fly Union provides smooth production for “Crazy Baby” so the break-up doesn’t seem super harsh. Real talk always goes better with melody. - Donewaiting

Nana B has been putting out a lot of good music these past few weeks with tracks like “Crazy Baby” and the Fly Union-produced “Work For You.”
Nana hooks up with the Cleveland-based outfit — who already have production credits for artists like Lolah Brown, Dom Kennedy and Curren$y — once again for his latest song, “Take You With Me.”
Like “Work For You,” this track also has a The-Dream like vibe with a nice groove and catchy lyrics.
The song is the third release from Nana’s upcoming EP Rm. 102, which will be dropping September 5th. - Soul Culture

If you're not familiar with Chicago-based Ghanaian singer Nana B, allow us to put you on.

On "Work For You," Nana B gives off a cool, trippy tune that could give The-Dream a run for his money. There's also a lot of experimentation going on with sounds—chopped & screwed, chimes, and synths of all sorts.

Take a listen below, and look out for this fresh new talent: - Vibe

Bio

Featured by TIDAL as a “New R&B Artist to Watch in 2016”, Columbus-hailing, Brooklyn- based singer-songwriter NanaBcool blends his smooth, soulful vocals and electric dance steps to bring a fresh groove to R&B.

NanaBcool was first heard on his debut EP RM102 produced by Columbus outfit Fly.Union (Big Sean, Kendrick Lamar, Dom Kennedy). Fast forward 5 years, the artist returns with the release of his buzzing single Love U to upcoming 2amCruise EP.

Following his move from Chicago to NYC, NanaBcool has been steadily creating a movement in the city leading to sold out headline shows and packed out parties (300-500 cap), and opening gigs for budding acts (Aminé, Adrian Daniel, WebsterX) – all without the support of a major project.

2amCruise EP prod. Simen Sez (Lion Babe, Khary, IshDARR) weaves together stories of Nana’s journies and embodies the narrative of the millennial working towards his or her come up in the Big City.
