NIKI announces Asian leg of ‘The Nicole Tour’ 2022

Jakarta-born, LA-based singer-songwriter and producer NIKI has announced the Asian dates of “The Nicole Tour.” The tour will be pulling up in Asia — Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Jakarta, and Manila. NIKI will also be headlining the Head in the Clouds music festival on some dates of the tour: 3 to 4 December, Jakarta; 6 December, Singapore; 8 December, Kuala Lumpur; 9 to 10 December Manila; and 13 December in Taipei.

NIKI latest album Nicole, unveiled in August, sees her returning to her singer-songwriter roots in a carefully crafted album that sees present-day NIKI meeting her teenage self. The album contains archived songs from NIKI’s past that have been reimagined for the album, in addition to a number of brand-new tracks. The album’s 12 songs expertly explore themes of love, heartbreak, and every emotion in between.

Fully written by NIKI, Nicole features production by Jacob Ray (Alison Wonderland, Evan Giia), Tim Anderson (Halsey, BANKS), Ethan Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers, Remi Wolf), and Jacob Reske (Vince Staples, Trippie Redd), with additional production by NIKI.

NIKI’s most recently released track, “High School in Jakarta,” has already amassed over 45 million streams. The track’s music video has surpassed 15 million views since its release, becoming NIKI’s fastest video to reach the milestone. “High School in Jakarta” follows the previous single “Oceans & Engines.”

In April this year, NIKI became the first Indonesian artist to ever perform at Coachella, alongside Rich Brian. NIKI will follow up her Coachella appearance with a performance at 88rising’s 2022 Head in the Clouds Festivals in Jakarta and Manila. She previously headlined the 2021 Head in the Clouds Festival last November with a striking set that received acclaim from MTV, Flaunt, and The AV Club, which hailed her as a “goddamn superstar.”

To date, NIKI has accumulated over 1.8 billion streams across all platforms. Her hit single “Every Summertime,” from the soundtrack of Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, went viral earlier this year, reaching Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits and currently has over 220 million streams and climbing. The track, written and produced by NIKI and longtime collaborator Jacob Ray, is an exuberant love song with a throwback sound reminiscent of classic R&B and soul.
