Listen to Marsha Ambrosius’ New Ballad ‘Old Times’

After getting adjusted to motherhood, Marsha Ambrosius awakens with a socially-charged ballad titled “Old Times.”

On the DJ Camper-produced track, Ambrosius sings her heart out as she reminsces about the good days with a loved one who lost their life to gun violence.

“Just like old times, just wanna love you right / Love you with all my might, love you for life,” she sings. “Just like old times, just wanna hold you tight / Love you with all might, love you for life.”

Ambrosius also premiered the music video for “Old Times,” enlisting Cricket (Larick Mathews) as director. The stirring video, which stars her daughter Nyla and real-life boyfriend, addresses police shootings of unarmed black men.

“Old Times” is set to appear on her forthcoming album, NYLA, which is named after her daughter. Speaking on the new album, which features production from Focus, Stereotypes, Harmony Samuels, Ambrosius says, “From beginning to end, it’s me letting go of everything I wanted to let go of in my life and experiencing things all over again through Nyla’s eyes. I had a lot of pent up energy, and channeling all of the energy into the music is what helped save my sanity. Poems turned into melodies and then a bunch of songs, which was like my personal therapy in a sense.”

This isn’t the first time Ambrosius has dedicated recordings to her first child. In 2017, she celebrated her the birth of Nyla with two sweet lullabies “Luh Ya,” and “Don’t Wake the Baby.”

NYLA comes nearly four years after her sophomore album, Friends & Lovers.
