South Bay-based alternative-pop artist, MEGG has returned with her explosive new single, “Hitting Nicotine” today. The new track, which marks her first release of 2022, explores the addictive feeling of being stuck in a toxic relationship. Complete with blunt, vulnerable lyrics, gritty vocals and punchy guitar, “Hitting Nicotine” is the type of song that’ll make you want to scream along at the top of your lungs. The energetic music video, which can be seen now below, serves as the song’s perfect companion.
Speaking of the song, MEGG said, “Met a guy, started dating, did a lot of drugs together, drank a lot – it was the epitome of a toxic relationship: high highs, low lows and I couldn’t stay away from nicotine throughout it. We were just fuckin chaotic together and my friend who produced the track and wrote it with me, Matias Mora, and I wanted it to capture that feeling. I knew it wouldn’t last and it was unhealthy but I was addicted to it and I think at some point we’ve all be there. The song goes hard, it makes you want to break shit and party all at the same time which is indicative to exactly how I felt in that relationship. It’s feels like a trailer park BBQ, a serious vibe.”
Bridging the gap between her love for pop music and her Southern California punk rock roots, MEGG comes at you with an in-your-face, unapologetically goofy and warm personality that’s impossible not to love. With a voice that sounds like the lovechild of P!nk and Gwen Stefani, you can’t help but be captivated by the strength and grit of her vocals and her attention commanding stage presence. Her feel-good, hard hitting music will have you driving way too fast, scream singing at the top of your lungs with the windows rolled down on your way to drink with your friends. Recently signing a publishing deal with Reel Muzik Werks, fans can expect new music from MEGG coming soon.
