Nicki Nicole and Young Miko – “8 AM” music video
‘8AM’ is a snappy track that narrates a wonderful tale about a young woman and her love interest.
The Facu Ballve-directed video finds a bucket hat-wearing Nicki Nicole and Young Miko performing their song in various locations. The video supports Nicki’s intimate and experimental new 10-track album, entitled, “ALMA,” which traverses diverse musical territories.
Nicki Nicole – “ALMA” album
Nicki reveals how, after an emotional downturn, she was born anew. In the early album sessions, Nicki asked herself, “What can I learn from this?” The answer was in the music: “I started creating this album believing it would save me,” she says. As much a concept album as it is a true story, ALMA — which translates to soul — centers on the connection between spirit, heart, and mind.
‘ALMA’ has already accrued more than 147 million streams in the first week. The project combines imaginative reggaetón beats with irresistible electro-pop and velvety ballads, highlighting Nicki Nicole’s sonics with a matured, personal touch.
The latest video offering from her new ALMA project, a hip-hop fused single with over 5.3 million streams in the first week, “DISPARA ***,” with MILO J, follows the personal, “NO voy a llorar :’).” An earlier collaborative single with Spanish rapper, RELS B, “qué le pasa conmigo?” reflects on the back-and-forth of relationship uncertainty.
