I love me some Lupe Fiasco! I been in love with him since the days of "So we kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, kick, push, coast, and you know the rest...
But on Lupe's song, "Hip Hop Save My Life", I kept hitting replay not only cause I loved the song, but I couldn't place the melodic, soulful voice that was on the hook of the track. I hopped on the computer to find that it was a young lady by the name of Nikki Jean.
She's BAD not only beacause her name is Nikki too (All Nikki's, Nicki's or Nicole's a FAB in my book *giggles*), but she got this unique appeal. If you like artists like Adele, Alicia Keys and Esperanza Spalding, you'll like her too. I guess you could say I have a thing for artist who can play an instrument and sing too!
She's just now really starting to pop, coming onto the scene with her single, "Penny's in A Jar." and the album that's called the same, which you can now get on iTunes.
