PRINCESS NOKIA

Princess Nokia is a musical collective lead by twenty-four year old Destiny Nicole Ortiz (formerly known as Wavy Spice). Destiny is an up and coming, multifaceted, DIY artist from the New York City underground. Her unique musical style blends tribal beats, with trip hop and R&B – creating an exciting and unprecedented crossover of sounds. Her first independent album in 2014, “Metallic Butterfly,” combines a post-Internet-era view on cyber-feminism, a metaphysical awareness of nature, and sex and drugs; often stepping into a dystopian, or indigenous landscape. Her songs are both hypnotic and hyper-reality driven. Vice Magazine hailed the album as being, “…one of the most exciting and ambitious [albums] to come out of the NYC underground in a long time…” Aside from her music, Destiny also hosts a weekly web-radio show that she DJs as part of her feminist art collective, Smart Girls Club, helping to open up dialogue and support for young women of all ethnicities in music and the arts.

To say 2016 was Princess Nokia’s year would be an understatement. Her rap album “1992” was called a “hip hop storytelling album” by Remezcla and “an ode to Brown Girl Nation” by Vibe. Rolling Stone even listed “1992” as one of its 15 Greatest Albums You Didn’t Hear in 2016. She had breakout hits like “Tomboy” and “Brujas” and the whole album was very positive and female-empowering. Nokia went on a very successful European and college tour and has solidified herself as truly a force to be reckoned with.
