NIKI is our Next Up Artist of the Week! She joined EJ for a virtual interview about her song "Lose," her debut album and more!
NIKI has been working hard to release her debut album "Moonchild," which is out now, but she says this industry is anything but easy. She says it's not all glitz and glam. It's a lot of hard work and you have to be willing to give it your all and there are a lot of sacrifices.
In 2018, Complex named NIKI Best New Artist she says it's a lot of pressure but she tries not to compare herself to other people.
It's a lot of pressure and with me, I've learned that comparison is truly the devil and you just can't compare yourself to anyone else's journey or trajectory in life, so I've just been trying to outdo myself and with every release I do I just think about what have I done in the past, what can I do better as opposed to how can I be this list's new whatever. That's how I think about it.
