Grandson of a generation of Cape-Verdeans who departed to Holland, Nelson Freitas started in 1997 as part of Quatro, a band who was exploring a new sound, halfway through zouk and kizomba, with r&b and hip hop influences. Their three albums, released over seven years, brought them success in countries like Cabo Verde, Angola or Mozambique & Portugal.
“Magic”, the debut album, arrived in 2007, followed by “My Life”, in 2010, and “Elevate” in 2013. All these albums have a lead single that tells a story of growth: from “Deeper” to “Rebound Chick” and “Bô Tem Mel”, the latter becoming a pivotal moment on Nelson’s career.
Then came “Miúda Linda”, the ideal calling card for Nelson’s 2016 album “Four:” “I went completely opposite of “Bô Tem Mel”. Miuda Linda became the biggest song so far with over 54 million views on youtube.
