N’kanta has been paving the way for Love Is Free with a series of song and video releases that started with “Easy Baby” in July and “Highway Road” in August, the videos have collectively garnered over 1.3 million views.
The Kingston, Jamaica-born, and North Carolina-based N’kanta has cultivated a career that’s allowed him the freedom to explore a bevy of genres, sometimes within one song. His previous album, The Counterfeit Revival (2020) is a swirl of sounds that grapples with challenging but timely issues of race, immigration, and the black experience. It was a potent, political-themed purging that cleared the way for the personal explorations on his rock-infused 2021 EP These Are The Days.
Within his songs, the genre-blurring artist and producer shares his perspective, his gratitude, his artistry, his upcoming new album Love Is Free was co-produced by Chuck Alkazian (Tantric, Madonna, Soundgarden, The Romantics.) “a true piece of art that gave us hope in music and creativity again. Going from rock to funk, passing by reggae, he unveils a unique and sincere artistic recipe, as well as powerful energy” – The Further.
