Grammy-nominated songwriter Nikki Jean just debuted another brand new single on Sway in the Morning on Shade45/SiriusXM!

The brand new track, titled “Mr Clean“, features a razor-sharp verse from Lupe Fiasco and stellar production from Jake One; an extraordinary combination for kicking off the long weekend with a summer banger! Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.

Speaking on the meaning behind the song, Nikki Jean said, “I’ve met the same man with different faces, many many times… This song is dedicated to him. The one that would leave me f*cked up and crying if I gave him half a chance… And we don’t give him chances no more.”

“Mr Clean” is available everywhere via Rhymesayers Entertainment.

Born and raised in St. Paul, Minnesota, Nikki Jean studied theatre before moving to Philadelphia and joining the band Nouveau Riche as lead singer. She gained major recognition for her contributions to Lupe Fiasco’s  “Hip Hop Saved My Life”, and other songs from the Grammy-nominated album, The Cool, before going on tour with Kanye West (Glow In The Dark Tour, 2008) and Mayer Hawthorne (A Strange Arrangement Tour, 2009). Nikki Jean co-wrote songs with Bob Dylan, Burt Bacharach, Lamont Dozier, Carly Simon and more, for 2011’s Pennies in a Jar, before going on to release 2013’s X-Mas EP and 2014’s Champagne Water EP. She’s also appeared on Brother Ali’s A Bite Marked Heart (2012), and Lupe Fiasco’s Tetsuo & Youth (2015), for which she performed alongside Lupe on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Following the release of her April 2018 single, “People & Planes”, Nikki Jean appeared live on Sway in the Morning (Shade45/SiriusXM) to debut her newest single “Mr Clean”, before going on to perform at the Official Before Party for Soundset 2018, at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN. Stay tuned for her Rhymesayers Entertainment debut, dropping this year!
