10 Ashnikko Songs For Every Playlist

10 Ashnikko Songs For Every Playlist

She’s your favourite trouble-maker, your blue-haired nightmare, your darkest sparkling stars – it’s Ashnikko! The 24-year-old American singer/rapper/songwriter shot to stardom after her song ‘STUPID (feat. Yung Baby Tate)’ went viral on TikTok in 2019. She’s refreshingly brash: a concoction of loud beats, cheeky vocals, and rebellious lyrics, slathered with glitter and gore. Her entire discography is made of bangers. We’re going to help you improve your playlists with 10 Ashnikko songs for every playlist. If you don’t, we’re sure she will appear in the middle of the night and lovingly threaten you to do so!

‘Hi, It’s Me’

Ah, the perfect introduction. Literally, it’s Ashnikko greeting the listeners, identifying herself as our best friend, then suggesting that our exes are not worth the time, the texts, the tears. How could she not immediately win your heart?

Knock-knock, it’s the viral hit itself! If you’ve seen the trend, but never seen the video – now’s the time, girl. Bet you didn’t imagine it’d be this visceral. Ashnikko shows up at your door, dressed like this – are you answering?

‘Cry’ (feat. Grimes)

Probably you right now: “She has a collab with Grimes?!” YEAH. What makes it even tastier is this video, it’s so unbelievably imaginative and cool. Guess that’s what happens when these iconic sonic enigmas collide. (Side note: Imagine a mash-up between this track and Paramore’s ‘Misery Business’…!)

‘Invitation’ (feat. Kodie Shane)

Ashnikko (and Kodie Shane) said ‘Women’s Rights’ and they meant it. Ever felt like men assume entitlement toward your body, just because you’re female? These women hear you, and they made this song to articulate the fact that you’re not alone.

Add this to your Empowerment playlist.

‘Daisy’

Her latest release is the equivalent of swinging on the jungle bars in full clubbing attire. It’s spacious, it’s brassy, it’s sour… it’s perfect? It’s absolutely classic Ashnikko.

‘Sass Pancakes’

Early Ashnikko drips like smart-mouthed syrup over this old cartoon of a rap beat. She’s not trying to hype herself up – she’s just explaining why she’s on top! An aspirational attitude giving us an aspirational attitude.

Add this to your Self-Confidence playlist.

‘Halloweenie II: Pumpkin Spice’

Now, ‘Halloweenie II: Pumpkin Spice’ is part of an annual series, yes – but she really hits her stride on this one in particular. Using her voice to make the melody creak? Like, is anyone else hearing this?! She scares us with how cool she is.

‘Special’

Another track that went a little viral, you may have heard this on your social media rounds. Though the catchiest part wasn’t in the viral clips! It’s made for yelling with your girls, maybe out of a car window (“You wish, you wish I missed you/Back the f*** up, I dismiss you”).

Add this to your Girls’ Night playlist.

‘Thrust’

Baby Ashnikko was “just a teenage sasspants” when she was releasing fire like this. The most captivating part of this track is her dallying rapping cadence. Honestly, everyone should hear a young girl’s voice sounding so comfortable and confident on a rap track.

Add this to your Self-Confidence playlist.

‘Tantrum’

Oh, the one where she has to apologize to her parents in the pre-chorus? Yeah, we love to see a self-aware, bratty queen (or rather, in Ashnikko’s lyrics on ‘Daisy’ – “F*** a princess, I’m a king”). Everything about her aesthetic rolls together into an obnoxious, engorged, glimmering dream that is ‘Tantrum’.

Add this to your most Unapologetic playlist.
