Nadia went on to express her excitement about the upcoming release and the collaborations she has had with other artists on the project. She said, “What started as a tribute EP has now evolved into a full-fledged tribute album, and it’s absolutely beautiful.
“I wish I could drop it today. I’m so eager to share it with the world. Some of the songs even came to me in a dream. It’s almost spiritual, I swear.”
As Nadia listened to the album on her way home, she couldn’t contain her enthusiasm. She exclaimed, “It’s amazing! It’s unlike anything you’ve heard from me before. This is a spiritual experience. The people who have contributed to this project are truly out of this world.”
