Today, London-based alt-pop rapper Ashnikko releases her summer anthem “Daisy.” On the track, the blue-haired maven merges her unique hyper-energized rapping with melodic vocals, delivering her signature messages of empowerment through a bubblegum blue hue to inspire young womxn. “Daisy” follows Ashnikko’s recent track “Cry” featuring Grimes, which has gained widespread acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, PAPER, Hypebeast, NME, Consequence of Sound, Stereogum, to name a few.

Ashnikko explains, “This song is for the brats (brattiness being a recurring theme in my music). It’s about this absolute boss dominatrix vigilante character of mine. She rids the world of rapists and throat punches the patriarchy, leaving daisies behind as a calling card of sorts. She’s sexy as fuck, wears only platforms, latex, and blue diamonds.”
Ashnikko has teamed up with Beats by Dr. Dre (Beats) to collaborate on the creation of the forthcoming “Daisy” music video. Over the next four weeks, Ashnikko and Beats will ask TikTok users to join in the #BEATSDAISYCHALLENGE, bursting with vibrant colored themes – Glacier Blue, Spring Yellow, Cloud Pink and Lava Red – where the most creative entrees will be featured in a UGC music video directed by Charlotte Rutherford at the end of the month.
