Nikaa - Joy (Single Review)
Introducing Nikaa, a fresh 19-year-old vocalist hailing from the heart of East London. Tapping into the music and heritage of Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Etta James, the up-and-coming singer's sound crosses over between jazz, indie-soul and R&B.
Following on from her 2020 collaborations with Santana G and Margot, the British-Italian artist has released her first single of 2021 - 'Joy' - with more music expected to come throughout the year.
Set with dreamy guitar lines from YoursTruly. Tha Boy, Nikaa's radiant and controlled vocals dance about with delight, standing at the centrepiece of the song as interweaving instrumentals swell. Full of expressive and honest lyrics, the uplifting production is matched with a stunningly soulful voice.
Having had the spotlight shone on her through Vans Musicians Wanted, Nikaa is making the industry sit up and take notice. And honestly, there's a lot to be excited about this flowering musician.
