Just the other day, the 17 year old singer/songwriter dropped a surprise track for fans and the R&B infused track has been blowing up ever since. Amassing an impressive 13k plays in just 21 hours and now sits at 100k plays after 3 days on the SoundCloud site. ‘Honest’ is a divine, playful single that demonstrates the young singer’s raw talent, allowing Rika’s sumptuously soulful vocals to shine through. Shooting straight to no.12 on the UK New and Hot R&B on SoundCloud, it’s impossible not to pay attention to this rising star – and she’s only just getting started.
Cast into the spotlight earlier this year with the upload of her heartfelt single ‘For Peace In Syria’ – penned and performed by Rika herself – the London-based artist has already demonstrated her incredible reach, succeeding in her goal to raise awareness and help the children of Syria, with the track racking up over 900,000 views on YouTube in just a few months. From emotional acoustic performances to soulful R&B singles, her latest offering – the unofficial release of ‘Honest’ – further highlights her unbelievable range and ability to adapt to any genre. With her debut single ‘No Need’ ready to drop later this month, Rika is set to become hot property in the pop world. Watch this space.
