After premiering her last release on Apple Music 1’s Discovered show back in March, Imani Nichele is back with a new offering titled “sweatergawd. (freestyle)”

Produced by familiar underground name Nolan The Ninja, the track is only just over a minute long. It feels more than complete in her delivery—clearly heavily hip-hop inspired—almost as if it’s alluding to what musical greatness is inevitably following from the skilled Chicago-based writer in 2024.

Imani discusses the new song:

“This is really just a warmup but ‘sweatergawd.’ was so much fun to make! I don’t think any artist enjoys being rushed or feeling like there is a window for when they can or will be received. I know when I’m here, you’ll feel it. Every time, the proof will always be the quality of my art.”
