88rising / Ashley Armitage

Indonesian R&B artist NIKI has officially made her grand debut on 88rising with the release of her highly anticipated Zephyr EP. The atmospheric project is stacked with eight delectable tracks that are all smooth on the ears and show off the 19-year-old’s abilities as both a singer-songwriter and producer. NIKI also unveiled a dreamy music video for the slow-burning ballad “Newsflash!” directed by Saint. (Add it to your “boy bye” playlist ASAP.)

Summertime has finally arrived and NIKI season is fully in session so embrace the vibes. Catch the rising R&B star live in the flesh while she’s on tour with Rich Brian and Halsey and stream the entire EP below.
