If you haven’t named Nicki Nicole in your list of your favorite artists, you’ve been missing out! We’ve been craving a complete album by Nicki since she released Parte de Mí. We even threw a party when ALMA was announced! We just can’t get enough of her amazing flow. This album is Nicki’s most vulnerable project yet, and the production throughout it is absolutely phenomenal. From amazing collabs with iconic artists from the Latin hip-hop scene to lyrics that hit us right in our hearts, ALMA has it all! We have been listening to it from beginning to end, and we want to share our favorite tracks with you!
‘Ya No’ has an amazing combination of a soulful introduction alongside Nicki’s unique voice and the piano notes you can hear throughout the entire track. ALMA‘s first song opens the album’s tone with lyrics asking to apologize for any previous actions that might have hurt our loved ones. It truly is a raw track to start us off with this amazing musical journey!
‘DISPARA ***’ (w/ MILO J)
The lead collaboration from ALMA is a bop! If we could define Nicki’s signature style with one song, we would tell you to check out ‘DISPARA ***.’ This single is a diss track, daring those that keep talking behind people’s backs to come forward and say everything to our faces. In addition to its realness, Milo J’s verse fits so well with the flow of the track, and their voices sound amazing together in the last chorus!
The music video also looks incredible, with top-quality looks and the daring attitude that this song showcases. We can’t stop listening to it! 🔥
‘8 AM’ (w/ Young Miko)
With its most urban rhythms and daring lyrics of the whole album, ‘8 AM’ is already iconic! The flow in Nicki and Young Miko’s verses makes their raps move so seamlessly that this song had to make it into our ranking. The track is also added perfectly into the tracklist to help play with the moods Nicki wants to convey with ALMA. You will definitely catch us singing the catchy chorus!
‘CAEN LAS ESTRELLAS’ (w/ YSY A)
‘CAEN LAS ESTRELLAS’ is the most electronic-esque track out of the album, with a chorus that will have you dance like you’re in the club! This song has an incredible beat, but the emotional lyrics take our whole hearts. Going through melancholic nights alone is such a hard thing to do, and Nicki and YSY A know how to convey these feelings perfectly. We also love Nicki’s wordplay in the chorus, using the concept of “fading away” as “the stars are falling.” Stars are supposed to illuminate the dark, night sky, but without that special person, it’s impossible to shine. 10/10!
‘TIENES MI ALMA’
The most perfect track to finish our journey with ALMA has to be ‘TIENES MI ALMA.’ Once we pressed play on this song, we instantly knew it was one of our favorites from this album. The combination of classical instruments and modern production is so gorgeous. Nicki is an amazing example of an artist that loves experimenting with different sounds, and ‘TIENES MI ALMA’ is absolutely phenomenal. We get chills every time we listen to it!
