Nao’s third studio album And Then Life Was Beautiful is officially set to arrive on Sept 24. Luckily for her fans, Nao already treated fans with a live performance earlier this month of the album’s title track to enhance the project’s theme. Now she returns with another preview, this time for the track “Wait.” While surrounded by a bountiful and stunning array of flowers, Nao shows off her angelic vocals:

Is it time? Is it space? Maybe it’s just that we need to be honest/ ‘Cause we’ve been up face to face, really wish that we could say what we wanted/ We’re emotional but we’re through it all/ Oh, wait, we ain’t perfect, we ain’t perfect, wait

The only way to learn is through mistakes, trying to run away is only human/ But if we stay then we might make it home/ Talk to me ’cause I can read your mind, tell me the truth even though it might kill me/ We both know that we’re just wasting time

A few weeks ago, Nao shared a taste of what’s to come by releasing her “Messy Love” single, which arrived accompanied by a stunning visual directed by Lisette Donkersloot. Prior to that, she enlisted an assist from Adekunle Gold for their beautiful collab track “Antidote.” Nao explained the inspiration behind “Antidote” on social media. “We wrote ‘Antidote’ as a musical remedy 4 U during these times and as an ode to our daughters, who were both born weeks apart from each other during the pandemic,” she wrote. “They filled us with love. They were our Antidote to all that was happening in the world. This song is a summer remedy for your winter days.”
