18 year-old half-Indian, half-Serbian Londoner Rika continues her emergence into mainstream pop consciousness with her new heater “Wanna Know”, and a personal mandate to consign traditional artist narratives to the scrap heap.
Following her recent release “On My Way” in late 2018 – a hard-bassline, melodic finessed gem that raced to over half a million views, picking up critical acclaim from the likes of THE METRO, HUNGER and WONDERLAND, the tastemakers and broadsheets alike were united in heralding the emergence of a new iteration of popstar. Rika comes through as a fresh, conscious, truly 2019 face of modern pop.
With BBC Radio 1 immediately co-signing it their official Tune of the Weekend, as well as heat at BBC 1Xtra, the rising pop star now offers a new side of her repertoire with “Wanna Know”; a sleek, bouncy joint that points to the teenager’s growing mainstream ambitions.
Another serious statement of intent sees Rika continue to cement her reputation as one of the freshest, most grounded popstars we can all claim.
