29 Nov NIKI, Getting to know the 88rising artist on Singapore Community Radio
88rising’s resident songstress NIKI has already achieved global recognition as “the internet’s favourite R&B princess”. Since the release of her breakout EP Zephyr in 2018, NIKI has earned critical acclaim from the likes of Highsnobiety, Pitchfork, Nylon, and Clash, amongst many others. She then joined the artist collective 88rising that same year, proving integral to their compilations, Head in the Clouds parts I and II. Amassing over 160 million streams to date, NIKI has slammed the door on the conventions of teen pop stardom by writing, recording, and producing her own music. This remarkable versatility and genre-bending artistry has brought her fans and praise from across the globe.
She supported pop superstar Halsey on the Asia leg of her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom Tour, and performed in front of 23,000 fans at 88rising’s Head in the Clouds Festival in LA this past August as the fest’s only female headliner. Not to mention, NIKI also closed out 2018 as one of Complex’s ‘Best New Artists’, and her output the following year only further solidified the designation. Having accomplished so much by age 20, there’s no telling what she’ll achieve in the years to come.
