With all her experimentations with guitar, Auto-Tune melodies, straight-out emo alternative sounds and lyrics and more, Princess Nokia might have just blessed up with a project our inner teenager/child needed, even if we didn't want or expect it.


The latest mixtape from Destiny Frasqueri pulls from her love of emo and alt-rock. It’s an underdeveloped but strangely addictive left-turn.

The Needle Drop

Princess Nokia's love for the emo scene can't really be doubted, but A Girl Cried Red more often than not borders on unintentional parody.

Loud and Quiet
The rich personality of ‘1992’ is gone, replaced with bare melodies and blunt, shallow lyricism.

This was surprisingly awful. I don't Princess Nokia is a bad artist and I thought 1992 Deluxe had some charm and quirk but this?! THIS PIECE OF ASS?!? Naaaaaaaaaa. This EP/mixtape thing is one of the most gaudy, overly sentimental, overly dramatic, stereotypical and cringey collections of tracks I have heard in years. The lyrics of this record sound like scribblings that a 12 year old would write after breaking up with their boyfriend after two weeks of dating. Some of the lines on this record ... read more

Influenced by Dance Gavin Dance so get hyped for potentially the worst release of the year.

Update: Woof.

Isn't being suicidal fun and exciting!? Hehehehe~*

The album cover pretty much tells the listener to “fuck off.” This was a very bold choice for Princess Nokia to do after dropping her absolute gem last year.

It’s always nice to see artists who are versatile and likable become obnoxious, boring, and watered down

The release of this ep/mixtape suprised me but i wish it didn't come out, it was a huge disappointment. I am okay with artists/bands changing styles but usually they turn out terrible. This is no exception from the rule.

The lyrics were simplistic and it had uninspired beats. Even though it was only twenty minutes i found it boring. I feel like she tried to hop on the emo rap trend just for attention.

I like her voice but on this album it sounds awful.

Con la stessa immediatezza con cui Princess Nokia aveva convinto critica e pubblico, grazie al suo album di debutto 1992 Deluxe, adesso delude con A Girl Cried Red, un mixtape che si fa fatica a credere appartenga allo stesso artista che, meno di un anno fa, faceva del rap carico d'ironia e senza peli sulla lingua, che alternava momenti di vanagloria e di consapevolezza d'essere troppo fuori dagli schemi, al tal punto di ritrovarsi emarginati. Nokia aveva colpito anche per la capacità di ... read more
