CHIKA signs to Warner Records, shares video for ‘High Rises’

CHIKA, a social media darling and gifted artist, has recently released the official visual for the reflective, masterfully written and beautifully-performed ‘High Rises’. Effortlessly going from rapping to singing, CHIKA encourages us to listen to the voice inside, shares what her school’s principal said to her, and happily talks about being able to pick up tabs.

Watch the visual for the inspirational cut above, out through Warner Records. Her debut EP is set to come out this Summer. If you will be at the Essence Festival, in New York [MoMA PS1], or at the AFROPUNK festival in Brooklyn, catch her set. The Montgomery, Alabama quintessential artist is good; worth giving your time!
