Nikki Williams Gives A Dazzling Debut With “Kill, F***, Marry”: Watch The Video
World, meet Nikki Williams, the striking chanteuse who’s serving up something deadly with her debut single, “Kill, Fuck, Marry.” For her first offering, the South African songbird, signed to Chameleon Records/Island Def Jam, went straight for the jugular with a sweeping single penned by Sia and produced by Stargate, and the results are nothing short of epic. Williams’ powerful vocals soar over a hazy midtempo beat, with a chorus that’s cleverly morbid: “Don’t know what I should do/Can’t fuck or marry you,” she sings, leaving the darkest option unspoken. It’s a sharp take on the infamous party game.
Most impressively, though, the visuals — a shadowy video that evokes Lana Del Rey’s best clips — provide a sterling accompaniment to the single. (Hint: There’s a gun, y’all.) One to watch in 2013? Absolutely — if we aren’t dead yet. Watch the video up top.
