Sad and Blue—hip hop artist Nubia Emmon’s hot new video is as captivating and creative as her fusing rap music with R&B. Taking her talent to the next level—the song, Sad and Blue, Nubia said is based on her personal life. She states, “In my verses you can hear me telling a story about a relationship and how we’re blaming each other back and forth and ultimately I end up hurt or, ‘Sad and Blue’. As for the video, she says that what inspired the setting is that she wanted it to mean more than just the words, ‘I’m laid up in my bedroom, this use to be the place for me and you’. “My bedroom, which is an intimate place, is our world. While we were together, we saw so much together, and we did so many things together. I didn’t want people to look at it as something sexual…so I put the bed outside to give it a bigger meaning and a bigger picture to it.”
