Los Angeles-based duo MIKNNA—comprising producer Ken Nana and rapper/vocalist Mike B—have dropped a new single, “Summertime Shine.”
The track layers ’80s-inspired synths and smooth vocals over a groovy R&B beat, distilling the essence of summer into a good-vibes-only anthem. “It’s a summertime shine / I can’t wait to feel you / Summertime shine / I want to know the real you,” B croons on the chorus. “We wanted to create a song that made you feel like you are always on vacation,” they said in a statement, and it sounds like they succeeded.
“Summertime Shine” follows MIKNNA’s debut LP Escape, which dropped in January. According to Ones to Watch, the up-and-coming duo plan to release a new song every three weeks until the end of the year, and have confirmed that numerous collabs are on the way.
