When you are as good as Nikki Grier, it’s only right that you struggle to make it in the business, otherwise the story is less interesting and Nikki’s story is like a page turning New York Times best seller drenched in heartfelt soul.
Born and raised in southern California to God fearing parents, Nikki spent more time in Church than she did any place else. At only 12 years old, Nikki was a part of a Gospel group that signed with Lou Adler who discovered the Legendary 60’s band “ The Mamas and Papas”. She has sung background vocals for Barbara Streisand, Michael Jackson and Leon Ware just to name an amazing few.
In 2006 she was invited by a former Aftermath A&R to come and write at a session with Dr. Dre. That one session turned into Nikki signing with Dr. Dre’s publishing company “Hard Working Black Folks” and Nikki has had her chance to shine, co-writing “Fire” on 50 Cent’s “Curtis” album (Featuring Nicole Scherzinger) and writing and/or singing Lead and background vocals for Dr. Dre, Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Stat Quo, Bishop Lamont, Raphael Saadiq, Lindsay Lohan, Ginuwine, and countless others. Most recently Nikki's song "Touch Me" was featured in the film "Not Easily Broken" and she sang on Eminem's critically acclaimed album "Recovery".
Nikki’s music is soulgasm; the perfect combination of sex and soul. She combines a perfect mixture of hip-hop,pop, and soul and delivers it with an element of sensuality. With her unique fifties pinup style, fishnet stockings and high heels, she commands any stage that she walks on; bringing in an era of seduction, love and liberation for every woman.
Nikki is currently working with Dr. Dre on his highly anticipated “Detox” album and Busta Rhymes on his new project.
