NIKI Feels "Split" Between 2 Lives in New Single

The 88rising artist debuts her latest track alongside a cinematic music video.

Fresh off her unforgettable performance at 88rising‘s Head In The Clouds festival earlier this month, NIKI has released a brand new single dubbed “Split.”

Accompanied by a cinematic visual directed by Sean Matsuyama, the track sees the 22-year-old artist’s struggle with feeling split between two worlds and two homes. “I wrote it about having to split myself between Indonesia and LA and feeling like I have to constantly ‘split the difference’/ adapt/ assimilate all the time,” NIKI shares in a press release. “It’s a song about home and identity, or maybe the struggle to find either. It’s very very personal and I hope you guys love it as much as I do.” To the essence of “Split,” the music video showcases NIKI longing for home while physically being in LA.

Watch the full video above and listen to “Split” via Spotify and Apple Music below.
