Earmilk Features New Nellie Charles Single ‘Rain On Me’

Coming off the heels of the success of her last single ‘Boss’, which was recently crowned BBC 1Xtra ‘Track of the Week’, and championed by BBC Radio 1, KISS FM, and Capital Xtra, among others, while also garnering critical acclaim from the likes of Notion Magazine, Earmilk, Wordplay Magazine, Ones To Watch, and Apple Music, Manchester-based UK R&B rising sensation NELLIE CHARLES returns with a sultry new offering titled ‘RAIN ON ME’, as featured in Earmilk. To be released on April 26 via Chocolate Love Monkey and Melody Mover, ‘Rain On Me’ is the second single from Nellie Charles’ highly anticipated debut EP arriving in the summer. ‘Rain On Me’ not only continues the momentum from her previous single ‘Boss’, but also showcases Nellie Charles’ evolving artistry and deepening emotional depth.

Written and produced by Nellie Charles herself, ‘Rain On Me’ explores the tumultuous end of a relationship, with Nellie narrating the emotional complexity of an ex-lover who wants to remain entangled in the past, despite seemingly moving on to somebody else. Driven by Nellie’s rich and emotive voice, as well as her raw and heartfelt lyrics, and complemented by lush grand piano arrangements and glorious bass guitar instrumentation, ‘Rain On Me’ is a powerful and cathartic declaration of closing the chapter on a toxic love, affirming Nellie’s resolve to move forward, unencumbered by the weight of unreciprocated emotions. As Nellie puts it, ‘Rain On Me’ promises to resonate with anyone who has ever had to assert their worth and step away from a relationship that no longer serves them.


Nellie Charles’ foray into music is a compelling tale of dedication, innate talent, and an unwavering spirit. Growing up in a home where the air vibrated with the timeless melodies of Etta James, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, and Ella Fitzgerald, Nellie’s early life was steeped in musical excellence. This vibrant soundscape of her youth sparked her love for music, and set her on a path to carve out her own niche within its rich tapestry.

Yet, it was her bold decision to leave academia behind that truly defined her journey. Driven by an insatiable desire to craft a distinctive sound, Nellie devoted herself to the sanctity of the studio, a space where her creativity knew no bounds.

Influenced by the soul-stirring narratives of Amy Winehouse and Lauryn Hill, Nellie’s music resonates with a depth of emotion that is both raw and captivating. Her connection to music runs deep, rooted in a lineage of family musicians who not only inspired her but also provided a nurturing environment for her artistic blossoming. As a self-taught pianist with a knack for music production, Nellie embodies a DIY ethos, ensuring her music remains a true reflection of her essence. Her lyrical themes, often drawn from personal heartache and introspection, reaching emotional landscapes that are far beyond her age, will resonate with anyone who’s navigated the often-treacherous waters of love and relationships.
