Rich Skillz
Album:
Untitled (TBD)

I get toe, I-I get toe up under…” Oh, right, different song. Don’t let the fact that the Pimp C-sampled hook from Meth & Red‘s ‘09 hit has taken up permanent residence in my brain distract you from the pop appeal Nikki & Rich bring to the table on this City Lights, a new single which finds the Reprise duo offering a somewhat less blunted perspective on the city-at-night theme. Here, producer Rich Skillz’ atmospheric blend of piano and reverb-drenched handclaps sets the stage for Nikki Leonti‘s heartbroken pleas to a lost love who has left her to “waste away” under the light of the glittering skyline. Big Apple mainstay Fabolous responds to her melodramatic but vocally powerful performance with a few encouraging words, delivering a middle verse laced with motivational quotables: “I’m just happy to be real in a world that’s mad fake / that can’t stop me, my life’s got bad brakes.” Like what you’re hearing? Keep it locked – Nikki & Rich’s forthcoming full-length has yet to receive a title or a solid release date, but we’ll be sure to bring you all the latest news and tunes.
