Chika presented a new version of her 2020 single “U SHOULD” for Best New Artist x Spotify Singles. Plus, the 24-year-old Alabama native covered “My Future” by 2020 Best New Artist winner Billie Eilish.
“I picked ‘My Future’ by Billie Eilish as my BNA cover for Spotify because the song is beautiful and presents an interesting opportunity to talk about where I am as an artist, especially on the heels of this nomination,” says Chika.
She continued, “My present is moving so fast that each passing moment is practically the future already. And I’m in love with the ride I’m on.” D Smoke, Noah Cyrus, and Ingrid Andress will offer additional Spotify Singles x Best New Artist releases throughout the week.
