Nicki Nicole, 20, Rosario
Nicki Nicole’s face pops on display throughout a Zoom name from Miami — she flew in for just a few days from Argentina to attend the awards present Premio Lo Nuestro — and one of the crucial noticeable issues concerning the 20-year-old singer is the phrase ‘bullshit’ stamped boldly throughout her neck. The tattoo is seen regardless of the angle of the digital camera, a everlasting and startling reminder of what she received’t put up with as a girl.
Although Nicki’s profession is just a few years previous, she’s already handled web trolls attempting to pummel her self-worth. She began out in Argentina’s trap scene, the place she says she felt supported by ladies who paved the best way earlier than her — however as her profile grew, so did a barrage of on-line insults. “It wasn’t, ‘I believe you’ll be able to enhance this.’ It was, ‘You’re shit,’” she says, laughing. Fortunately, ladies within the business made certain she by no means believed her detractors, together with Nicki’s dream collaborator, reggaeton pioneer Ivy Queen, who as soon as informed her, “Nicki, you’ve gotten your home — make it rely.”
She’s executed that by imbuing her music with a robust sense of self. “I’ve discovered to essentially know who I’m,” she says. Not too long ago, she joined Dominican artist Rochy RD and Puerto Rican rapper Myke Towers on the remix of Ella No Es Tuya (She Isn’t Yours), by which the fellows rap a few man who’s fallen for a girl who received’t decide to him. Nicki had a selected perspective she wished to emphasize: “She doesn’t belong to anybody; ladies don’t belong to anybody,” she says.
