Princess Nokia Announces '1992 Deluxe' Release This September

Since she self-released her mixtape 1992 last year, Princess Nokia (Destiny Frasqueri) has been busy touring the world, recording new tracks, and working to develop a community and fan base that embraces her message of self-love and mutual respect. Today, she announces she will release 1992 Deluxe on September 8th via Rough Trade.

This expanded version includes the original 1992 tracks fully remastered, plus an additional 8 new tracks--including her most recently released single, "G.O.A.T." which was accompanied by a video directed by Frasqueri and long-time collaborator Milah Libin.. *Watch Here*

Princess Nokia also recently sat down with Genius to break down the lyrics behind "G.O.A.T.," describing them as "not about aggression or materialism, but about spirituality, cultural diaspora, body positivity." Hear more about the track now via Genius' Video Series "Verified".

To celebrate today's announcement, Princess Nokia shares a precursor to the video for 1992 standout track "Brujas." Opening on the same brujas featured in the full video, we hear Nokia begin a soliloquy,which is a breathtaking spiritual meditation on her afro-latin Yoruba heritage. *Watch Here*
