Explosive Argentine artist Nicki Nicole (@nicki.nicole) enlists Spanish rapper Delaossa on her new single “Me Has Dejado.” The song was co-written with Mauro De Tommaso and Evlay and co-produced the track with Delaossa and Kiddo.
The official music video, directed by Guillermo Centenera, was filmed in Madrid. It showcases Nicki presenting the downfall of her on-screen relationship with track collaborator Delaossa. The official video features contrasting scenes of the two musicians with their friends, Nicki stuck on a sinking car and Delaossa in ruins.
“Dani is someone that I admire very much. I have been a big fan of his since before I started making music. It is incredible to have my idol become my friend,” Nicki shares. “We made this song two years ago and my hope was to record it together in the studio, but due to the pandemic we had to finish it separately. Luckily we were able to record the video together here in Spain. The great thing about this song is that it has my essence and his 100%.”
“Recording with Nicki was incredible because it was super organic. I learned about her through her Bizarrap session, and I reached out,” Delaossa remembers. “I invited her to sing with me at one of my shows, and then it flowed. When I went to Argentina we got together in the studio, and in about an hour and a half we created the song. It was super natural and organic. It was a pleasure, there were great vibes. With Nicki, there aren’t enough words.”
“Me Has Dejado” follows Nicki’s break-out TV performance of “No Toque Mi Naik (feat. Lunay)” on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. She was the first Argentine artist to perform on the acclaimed TV show. Nicki also recently won “Best New Female Artist” for Premio Lo Nuestro and was nominated for “Best New Artist” at the Latin GRAMMYs.
The 20-year-old artist brings R&B and soul to Argentina’s urban scene and is regularly celebrated for challenging gender stereotypes along the way. She was profiled in VOGUE as well as The Guardian, which described her as “the star defying Argentinian rap’s macho culture.”
Nicki’s remix for Rochy RD‘s “Ella No Es Tuya” was a viral hit across the globe earlier this year with more than 400 million total streams. Nicki is also nominated for “The New Generation: Best New Female Artist” at Premios Juventud. Her smash hit “Colocao” is now RIAA certified as Latin Gold Status in the US and has 205 million streams.
