‘Life’s A Bitch’, the playful and empowering synth-pop tune from the Scottish songwriter, features an accompanying horror comedy-inspired music video.
Nina Nesbitt’s second song for 2021, ‘Life’s A Bitch’, sees the alt-pop singer blend modernity with nostalgic, throwback synth-pop.
In the new single, she sings, “I don’t let it get me down / Life’s like a bitch, I hate her but I love her.”
The song, co-written with Swedish production duo Jack & Coke, touches on the frustrations and minor inconveniences people face in life. However, the 27-year-old concludes that the positives that we encounter make the entire ordeal worthwhile.
“‘Life’s A Bitch’ is an ‘80s inspired, post-2020, driving-your-car-through-a tunnel-at-night song. A ‘dancing while crying, and smiling through the tears’ moment. It’s about the unpredictability of life, the ups and downs, being your own worst enemy and your own best friend. The chorus is an empowering mantra for powering through the turbulence of life.”
The accompanying music video for the single features Nina leaving life’s worries behind in a getaway car before realizing she cannot outrun herself.
A nod to embracing one’s inner demons, the song sends a message in learning how to face as well as acknowledging our fears to fully live as ourselves.
The new track follows Nina’s sun-soaked pop anthem, ‘Summer Fling’, which has seen immense success as the song rose to the top of TikTok UK’s Hot 50 chart and numerous New Music Friday playlists around the world.
2019 saw her release her second album, The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change, featuring mega hit ‘The Best You Had’.
Nina’s ever-growing rise to stardom saw Taylor Swift give a shoutout during her acceptance speech for Woman of the Decade Award at Billboard’s Women in Music Event.
