Watch ‘Slumber Party’ here
Ashnikko returns with a video for new single ‘Slumber Party’ featuring New York rapper Princess Nokia. Out today, the Charlotte Rutherford video is a lilac powder puff flick, full of Marie Antoinette-esque fits, slick choreography and fantastical stage design. The viral smash is a raunchy explosion of sapphic eroticisms that leaves little to the imagination.
The track featured on her recently released mixtape, DEMIDEVIL, whicH won the hearts and ears of tastemakers ranging from VOGUE to The Guardian. Slumber Party continues to climb the Global Spotify Chart, generating more than 80 million streams and has lit up the viral TikTok charts with over 170k creations and counting.
Ashnikko says that Slumber Party is “a sexy song I wrote about a girl I had a crush on,” she laments: “It seems to be a recurring theme that I always fall for girls who are dating someone else”.
Princess Nokia has recently released the Only Fans inspired single “It’s Not My Fault” via Arista Records, which followed on from her global smash “I Like Him,”, a viral TikTok hit with even Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez getting involved.
Alongside the video release, Ashnikko is also sharing live tour dates putting her back where she belongs – centre stage! She’ll be performing across North America, the U.K and Ireland which will see her vibrant storytelling finally come to life.
