迄今為止,已累計獲得了超740M流媒體資料矚目的21歲的NIKI,始終堅持自主創作、錄製和製作自己的歌曲,勇敢地打破了作為“流行偶像”的定式。這位出生在雅加達,現居LA的女孩,正吸引著整個世界的目光,Billboard盛讚她是“冉冉升起的最耀眼的新星之一”。
緊接著今年四月剛剛發佈的“Switchblade”,NIKI帶著新單曲“Selene”再次回歸。這首新歌也是她即將發佈的個人首張全長專輯,目前釋出的第二首單曲。“Selene”由NIKI和Jacob Ray共同創作和製作完成,將向我們展現NIKI靈魂性、節奏性的音樂特質。充滿熱情的即興表達與現場式的小號旋律,將“Selene”與專輯中的其他作品區分開來,作為一首節奏歡快的單曲,為聽眾帶去想要起舞的聽覺體驗。

主題上,“Selene”的故事建立在“Switchblade”中NIKI的故事之上,帶聽眾進一步深入專輯的第一段落。被人格化為“月亮之子”的NIKI,從懸崖墮入深不可測的虛空,在“Selene”壓倒性的存在之下蘇醒。在希臘神話之中,“Selene”是月亮女神,女神接管了月亮之子,附身於她,並支配她一個具有煽動性的魅惑的新人格。這種吸引力的推拉,帶出了月亮之子性感的新一面,並引出了她關於女性身份與身體欲望部分的個人成長。

NIKI的個人首發專輯《Moonchild》,作為一張概念專輯,帶領聽眾共同經歷三個自我探索的月相:新月(純真、好奇、開端);半月/月蝕(失去希望、幻滅);滿月(自我發現、力量)。這張專輯的靈感來自於NIKI的音樂影響,將不同的音樂風格融入三聯曲的音樂結構——R&B,流行,都市,Funk,鄉村音樂——從單純質樸的鋼琴歌謠到精心編排的讚美詩。經過整整兩年的製作,《Moonchild》集合了NIKI的多位元合作者,製作人及詞曲作者Jacob Ray、製作人組合 Bekon & the Donuts (Kendrick Lamar, SZA)、蒙特利爾製作人Pomo (Anderson .Paak, Mac Miller)同時參與了“Selene”的製作。

With over 740M+ streams to date, 21-year-old NIKI has slammed the door on the conventions of pop stardom—writing, recording, and producing her music on her own. Born in Jakarta and based in Los Angeles, NIKI has captured the attention of audiences around the world, earning praise from Billboard “as one of the brightest rising stars.”

Following the release of “Switchblade” this past April, NIKI returns with “Selene”, the second single off her forthcoming debut full-length album 'Moonchild'. Written and produced by NIKI and Jacob Ray, “Selene” presents a soulful and funky side of NIKI musically. Passionate adlibs and live horns set “Selene” apart from the rest of the album as an up-tempo song that will make listeners want to dance.

Thematically, “Selene” builds upon NIKI’s story from “Switchblade,” bringing listeners further into the first phase of the album. NIKI, personified as the “Moonchild”, has fallen cliffside into a deep, bottomless void and wakes up to the overwhelming presence of “Selene”, who in Greek mythology is the Goddess of the Moon. The goddess takes over the Moonchild, possesses her, and dictates a new provocative persona. The push and pull between this captivation brings out a new sensual side of the Moonchild, and elicits a part of her personal growth through womanhood and sexuality.

A concept album, NIKI’s debut LP, 'Moonchild', takes listeners through three lunar phases of self-exploration: crescent moon (innocence, curiosity, embarking); half-moon/eclipse (loss of hope, disillusionment); and the full moon (self-discovery, strength). The album draws inspiration from NIKI’s musical influences, infusing its triptych song structure with eclectic styles – R&B, pop, urban, funk, country – from stripped-down piano ballads to lushly orchestrated anthems. A full two years in the making, 'Moonchild' has brought NIKI together with such collaborators as producer/writer Jacob Ray, the producer collective Bekon & the Donuts (Kendrick Lamar, SZA), and Montreal producer Pomo (Anderson .Paak, Mac Miller), who is credited with additional production on “Selene”.
