Nicki Nicole on Christina Aguilera’s collaboration, the album ‘Parte De Mí’
Nicki Nicole is having a decisive year. In the wake of the release of her new album “Parte De Mí”, the Argentine singer not only received her second Latin GRAMMY nomination, but also collaborated with Christina Aguilera. In an exclusive interview with mitú, Nicole spoke about her LP collaborations, working with Xtina, and what’s to come.
Nicki Nicole took part in Christina Aguilera’s new Spanish song.
Aguilera hired Nicole to appear on “Pa Mis Muchachas” alongside Becky G and Nathy Peluso. The hymn of mujer power is like a Latin version of “Lady Marmalade”. Nicole arrives with a fiery verse to match Aguilera’s fierce performance. Aguilera, Nicole, Becky G and Peluso will open the Latin GRAMMY Awards with the song’s first live performance on November 18. The show will air on Univision.
“It’s so crazy”, says Nicole mitú on collaboration. “It’s an incredible opportunity that came before me and a great song on top of that. It is beautiful for [Christina] coming out with ‘Pa Mis Muchachas’ as her first single after not doing Latin music for 20 years, and now she’s coming back with everything.
Nicki Nicole is nominated for Best Rock Song at this year’s Latin GRAMMYs.
Nicole is also a Latin candidate for the GRAMMYs. Last year, she received her first nomination for Best New Artist. Now Nicole is in the running for Best Rock Song for “Venganza” with Uruguayan band No Te Va Gustar. The song she co-wrote is about a woman who takes revenge on a partner who abused her and put her through hell.
“I’m so proud,” Nicole says of the nomination. “The song talks about a lot of the realities that women face today. For Latin GRAMMYs, recognizing the song with a nomination is super important for women and for me a person. It’s a song that is very sad but very real.
Nicki Nicole addresses several genres on her album “Parte De Mí”.
Nicole emerged from the Argentinian Latino trap scene, but over the past year she has explored more genres like R&B, reggaeton, rock and pop. She exercises her versatility as an artist on her new album “Parte De Mí”. The LP features collaborations with Argentine hit-maker Bizarrap, chicana rapper Snow Tha Product and Puerto Rican pop star Rauw Alejandro. “This album is full of incredible rhythms, genres and colors,” says Nicole.
Rauw Alejandro featured her in “Sabe”.
Nicole teamed up with Alejandro for “Sabe”. Their sexy love song is complemented by reggaeton beats. The two singers exchange verses about what they can do for each other as lovers.
“With Rauw, we had a special chemistry in the studio,” explains Nicole. “We complemented each other well with our voices and our flow. I think it’s a song that’s great with both of us on it. Personally, I like the video as much as the song.
Snow Tha Product joins Nicki Nicole and Ptazeta in “Tengo To”.
In “Tengo To”, Nicole teamed up with Snow Tha Product and Spanish rapper Ptazeta. The song works more like a freestyle moment where each woman unleashes her fierce rap flow. It’s a global girl power anthem on the album.
“Unfortunately, this song was recorded remotely,” says Nicole. “We couldn’t get together because of COVID. It’s a great rap song. Each woman had her own space and her own bars on the song. It came out great. It’s one of my favorite songs.
Bizarrap produced two songs on Nicki Nicole’s album.
Nicole collaborated twice with Argentinian producer Bizarrap on the album. They first worked together in 2019 in “BZRP Sessions # 13,” which has over 153 million views on YouTube. Now Bizarrap returns the favor in Nicole’s songs “Verte” and “Dangerous”.
“With Bizarrap, we are like siblings and best friends,” says Nicole. “We get along well. We have a bunch of songs together, but we decided to release these two songs on the album because they have rhythms and motivation that we want to put there.
There’s more music from Nicki Nicole on the way.
As for the sequel, Nicole promises there will be more music and collaborations on the way. She will also be touring Argentina and Europe hoping to visit more places around the world.
“I want to keep learning everything there is about music,” she says. “At 21 and two years in the industry, I think I still have some way to go. I am ready for whatever will follow.
