"New" Artist of the Month for June 2024


INIKO is an American nonbinary alternative/pop singer and songwriter from Brooklyn, New York. INIKO became interested in music at an early age thanks to their father, the lead singer of a reggae band called Soldiers. INIKO began their professional music career in 2018 with the release of their first single Kingdom.

Since then, many listeners have become transfixed with INIKO’s work thanks to their hypnotic vocal talent, exemplified when their 2023 single Jehrico went viral on TikTok, which has over 100 million streams on Spotify.
