Announcing the album Nico commented…

“‘Born.’ is my heart and soul laid bare, tracing the path of fatherhood through lyric and melody”. 

The announcement of the album “Born” and its first single “Grapefruit” caught the attention of many music enthusiasts, including Raj, Founder and Editor-In-Chief of EQ. Raj’s insightful observations about Nico’s ‘Harry Styles‘ way of making queer-friendly pop music that resonates with Gen Z’ are noteworthy. The follow-up single “He Said She Said” further highlights the similarities between Nico and Harry Styles’ music. In particular, the soothing music and dreamy vocals are reminiscent of those used in Harry Styles’ album, “Fine Line.”
