Pop / R&B / Singer-Songwriter
At only 20-years old, Indonesian R&B artist NIKI has already achieved global recognition as "the internet's favorite R&B princess" (Noisey). Since the release of her breakout EP Zephyr, NIKI has earned critical acclaim from the likes of Highsnobiety, Pitchfork, Nylon, and Clash, among many others. Amassing over 113 million streams to date, NIKI has slammed the door on the conventions of teen pop stardom—writing, recording, and producing her music on her own.
Her remarkable versatility and genre-bending artistry has galvanized fans across the globe. NIKI went on tour this past summer supporting pop superstar Halsey on her Asia tour, followed by the 88rising "Head in the Clouds" Festival and North America Tour this past fall. NIKI closed out the year as one of Complex's Best New Artists of 2018. Her 2nd EP wanna take this downtown? is absolutely phenomenal so keep your eyes on this rising pop star.
May 20, 2019 "[The EP] truly expanded my own definition of not only who I am but also who I can be as an artist and that really, there are no rules."
