Tanika is one of London's newest rising stars and armed with her soul infused R&B and distinctive style. Tanika is ready to take the UK by storm as she offers the the Thoughts Of Love EP (hosted by Charlie Sloth of Radio 1 & 1xtra) for free download ahead of its digital release on iTunes later this month.
In addition to streaming the new EP, Tanika has also revealed her video for lead track, Thoughts Of Love which features vocals from Brooklyn based Zebra Katz. The dark, brooding video perfectly accompanies Tanika's soothing ballad - combined with Zebra Katz's sinister verse makes for a striking video.
This year has already catapulted Tanika in the limelight as she performed a sensational cover of Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" in the 1xtra Live Lounge with Naughty Boy to promote his #1 single "La La La". Following her incredible cover with Naughty Boy, Tanika teamed up with renowned UK rapper, DVS with their take on Adele's 'Hometown Glory' for SBTV.
A huge milestone for Tanika was recently supporting American R&B artist, Keyshia Cole on the UK leg of her latest tour. Performing at venues such as The Ritz in Manchester and London's Indigo2 to huge crowds was a massive eye-opener for Tanika, leaving her wanting more!
