Princess Nokia signs to Rough Trade and drops new single "G.O.A.T."

Fast-rising rapper Princess Nokia has announced a new deal with Rough Trade and is celebrating with new track/video "G.O.A.T.".

The NYC native, real name Destiny Frasqueri, has already put out a handful of releases, including Metallic Butterfly, Honey Suckle, and 1992, and earned a reputation for magnetic live performances (we can vouch for the hearsay - we caught her in Barcelona and she was nothing short of amazing).

"My live show is a lotta fun," Nokia says. "I mean it's a real vibe - something out of this world... I have been playing sold out tours since I released the album on my website, I’ve gotta to say, I’m blessed. Every city has... a crowd of young kids that love my music... I have girls that cry and throw roses in the front. Straight men who come with their friends and scream every lyric from every song... I show up for them and rip that mic so they leave feeling inspired and happy, It’s a great time."

Nokia plays lots of UK/EU dates this summer, with festival slots confirmed in the UK, Sweden, Finland, Belgium, Poland, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, and more. Check out the full list of her upcoming shows.

"G.O.A.T." is out now via Rough Trade.
