A couple of weeks ago, my good friend and fellow DJ Flash & Flare shared a link for a hot new emcee out of Atlanta, named Nikkiya. This lovely lady’s debut mixtape Speakher is out now and it’s one you’re gonna want. She garnered some deserved attention after being featured on YelaWolf‘s Speak Her Sex.
*side note…YelaWolf will be in SLC on October 6th at Urban Lounge.*
I’m a sucker for soulful vocals and clever lyrics, especially laid over a beat I can dance to. Speakher contains all of those elements. How could you not be a fan when her genre is Jammin’ and she counts Anita Baker, Sade, Ace of Base, Whitney Houston & Madonna as influences? Nikkiya is a name and face you will soon hear and see everywhere.
