The Buzz On: Nikki Williams

Nikki Williams is on the come up.

Everyone, please meet Nikki Williams. She’s a 22-year-old songstress from South Africa and her new single, “Kill, F***, Marry” is blowing UP. As in, everyone you know is probably already obsessed with it, and if they’re not, you’re gonna feel verrrrrry cool when you introduce it to them. Also, just for the record, we totally support the marry part, not so much the killing part, and if you’re gonna do the f*** part, do it safely, kids! Moving right along…

Listen to Nikki Williams after the jump.

In a twist of Hollywood fate, at age 16 Nikki moved to the United States, where she was discovered while mindlessly singing to herself at the Roosevelt Hotel in L.A. (as one does, you know?). How many wannabe performers in L.A. does that happen to?? The answer is: not many. Because no, we’re not exaggerating at all, and also no, if you and your tone def set of pipes do the same thing, a discovery like Nikki’s probably won’t happen to you. This is like, when pigs fly/unicorns roam the streets kinda rare.

Cut to a few years later, and not only does the girl have a rapidly growing fan base, but Nikki can also count a few famous faces among them. And by famous, we specifically mean the inimitable Sia, who, along with super-producer Stargate, wrote Nikki’s  ”Kill, F–k Marry.” And did we mention Sia also cowrote a little-known song called ”Diamonds” for Rihanna? Because if a coveted co-sign from Sia doesn’t sell you on Nikki, then we don’t know what will.
