In "Move", Niasha showcases her fierce and commanding lyricism, addressing themes of belonging and self-preservation. The single is a genre-bending hit that combines elements of hip-hop, R&B, dancehall, and trap, and features a bass-heavy track produced by BLUM. According to Complex, Niasha's "Move" is an anthem for anyone in need of a reminder of their worth.

To accompany the release, Niasha has also dropped a music video for "Move", which was produced by 76M Films. The video captures the hypnotic groove of the track and complements Niasha's forceful and self-assured rhymes. "Move" is a testament to Niasha's talent and determination, and it's clear that nothing and no one will stand in her way. For anyone looking for an empowering and uplifting song, Niasha's "Move" is a must-listen.

Niasha is a reworked spelling of her real name Nyasha Dzingai. She often performs spoken word and writes songs in Shona, her native tongue. She was part of Sampa The Great's December 2022 performance where she recited a spoken word in Shona. "Thank you so much, Sampa The Great for having me as part of “Shadows” to perform a spoken word fully in Shona, the language of my people. It was truly an honour to speak to the message of As Above So Below and do it with family." reads one of her Instagram Captions. 

In a 2020 Interview with Creative Brimbank, Niasha articulated how her Zimbabwean cultural background influences her art. "It informs the heart of my music and my understanding of how sound comes and can come together. I also enjoy it when I can sing or rap in my mother tongue Shona because it grounds me and reminds me of home (Zimbabwe) and how connected I still am to it even though I haven't been back in over 12 years," she said.
