PinkPantheress release her debut album Heaven knows, out now via Warner Records UK / 300 Entertainment. To celebrate the project’s release, PinkPantheress shares music video for ‘Nice to meet you’ (feat. Central Cee).
Following on from her critically acclaimed mixtape to hell with it, the debut album reveals PinkPantheress’ inner self-reflection as she explores various types of relationships, including romantic, parasocial, materialistic pursuits, grief, and finding contentment within loneliness. Produced and written by PinkPantheress, the 13-track project was created alongside previous and new collaborators including Greg Kurstin, Mura Masa, Danny L Harle, Count Baldor, Phil, Cash Cobain and more. The product of PinkPantheress and these collective minds working together is an album that exhibits a new emotional depth from the musician’s songwriting paired with her saccharine vocals and earworm production.
Speaking on the album, PinkPantheress explains “The record is about grief for a loss but being at peace with yourself in your aloneness. Journeying from hell into purgatory, but I’m ok with being there”.
Co-produced by PinkPantheress and Cash Cobain, ‘Nice to meet you’ sees the long-awaited collaboration between the UK’s biggest rising stars come to fruition. In the Charlotte Rutherford-directed (Lil Nas X, Nicki Minaj) music video, the protagonist pens a love note reminiscent of high school notebooks before casting the dove-shaped note into the air. As the letter glides across London, we take a glimpse into her thoughts. PinkPantheress takes center stage, serving as a voice for the protagonist’s emotions, whilst her doodles come to life with choreography by Seun Latukolan (Jungle, Jungkook) and noughties-inspired graphics splatter across screen. We see Central Cee practising his effortlessly cool confession when the paper dove breaks down the fourth wall arriving in the hand of its intended target. We see the love interest turn into a paper dove in what we can assume is his response. In true PinkPantheress and Central Cee style the fourth wall is completely broken before its conclusion.
Speaking on Nice to meet you PinkPantheress says: “Nice to meet you is the perfect blend of all things i love in music, im honoured to have Cash Cobain and Central Cee on one track for this bouncy pop moment and i hope you love it too”.
