    Weeks after tantalizing us with the single “Lowkey,” NIKI has finally released her new EP, Wanna Take This Downtown?.

    While the four-track release is just a small taste of what the 88rising artist is capable of, it still boasts powerful songwriting and seamless production. The Indonesian singer recorded Wanna Take This Downtown? following the tragic passing of her mother, and she says the EP provided her with a necessary escape.

    “It was born out of this dark time in my life but it kind of flipped around and saved me, honestly,” she said in a press statement. “I know that sounds dramatic but it really did.”

    NIKI is also gearing up to release an album later this year. In the meantime, stream Wanna Take This Downtown? below:
