A Girl Cried Red is the new self-described “emo mixtape” from Princess Nokia. The mixtape is out now via Rough Trade Records and will be available on limited edition red vinyl June 22. Today, the New York rapper -aka Destiny Frasqueri- released the video for track ‘For the Night,’ picking up where the video for first single ‘Your Eyes Are Bleeding’ leaves off. Watch the video directed by Milah Libin and Frasqueri below.
The emcee has been releasing music via YouTube and Soundcloud since she was in high school and catapulted herself to the mainstream with her 2017 album 1992 Deluxe -selling out venues across the globe and steadily gaining tens of millions of streams. This weekend, Princess Nokia returns home to New York City to perform two sold out headline shows at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere. See all upcoming tour dates below.
A Girl Cried Red showcases another side of Destiny that still taps into the feminist ideology of Princess Nokia. You can hear more about her influences and her ode to all things emo/pop/punk on premiere episode of her bi-weekly Beats 1 Radio show, Voices In My Head.
“BORICUA POWER” is the latest episode of her Beats 1 show and is a special one for Frasqueri, as she covers many important facets to Nuyorican Culture and her identity as an Afro Puertoricena Mujer (Women). The show has also recently been picked up for a second season.
