Nykki releases a cute music video for her “Playing It Cool” single

Nykki is a rising singer-songwriter from the Czech Republic. Not too long ago, she released a cute music video for her “Playing It Cool” single. The playful ‘90s/Y2Y rom-com-influenced video showcase Nykki’s acting skills.  

Nykki – “Playing It Cool” music video

“I’m a hopeless romantic who grew up watching rom-com movies. I wanted the video to show some of them while having fun playing different characters, with different looks and hairstyles, making it something very entertaining for other people to watch.” – Nykki explained

‘Playing It Cool’ is a smooth and energetic post-summer anthem led by a groovy guitar and a funky bassline over pulse-pounding claps drums. An irresistible setting for Nykki’s lush vocals and her catchy optimistic lyrics, as she voices her desire for the kind of love story worthy of watching over and over again.

‘Playing It Cool’ was written by Nykki with John Foyle, known for his work with Mae Muller, Lola Young, and St£fan (a.k.a. Stefan Abingdon). The song comes hot on the heels of the recent single, “Right Place Wrong Guy,” which has seen support from Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s New Music Daily and New in Pop.

“This is my first 100% positive, very lovey-dovey song and I’m here for it! I wrote this for my boyfriend, just expressing my feelings, and making fun of myself, while being very honest and vulnerable. We wrote this with John Foyle and St£fan over zoom. I felt ready to finally write and release a love song that wasn’t about heartbreak. I wanted this to be the song you hear after the last scene in a romantic movie, the sound is definitely poppier and cuter than anything I’ve released before, but at the same time is still very me and based on my relationship.” – Nykki explained

Nykki has rolled out a string of bops which marked her as a newcomer to watch. Her debut single, “No Cry,” catapulted her into the international pop world, and the accompanying music video surpassed one million YouTube views. Later, Nykki’s single’s remix by Leon Lour peaked in the UK Commercial Pop Top 30 Club Charts at number 13. Her follow-up single, “Lost My Mind,” showed Nykki’s good girl turned bad persona through the convincing acted scenes and dynamic choreographed shots of the video, which has now reached nearly 1.5 million YouTube views. With “Playing it Cool,” Nykki flawlessly showcases her cleverly witty and playful side, proving she is capable of writing undeniably catchy songs.
