FORTHCOMING EP it was nice knowing u ARRIVES NOV. 17 ON MASKED RECORDS / WARNER RECORDS
“I KNOW” RIAA CERTIFIED GOLD
The DMV-bred artist known as Kanii (pronounced Ka-Nee) re-ups his fan-favorite anthem “sins (let me in)” with a brand new Trippie Mix now featuring none other than multi-platinum chart-topping artist Trippie Redd. The new version paves the way for his anticipated new EP, it was nice knowing u, arriving November 17th.
This version adds another dimension to the otherworldly banger, elevating it even higher in the process. Trippie pulls up with his instantly recognizable voice sliding into the pocket as he delivers a verse laced with raw emotion. It’s the perfect counterpoint to Kanii’s hypnotic hook.
The original “sins (let me in)” followed previous bops like “marry me” and the chic collaboration “BABY I’M HOME” with Odetari and 9lives. Before that, Kanii collaborated with Riovaz on “waiting alonE” and released his critically acclaimed 8-track debut project, exiit. The buzz and groundswell surrounding him has been rapidly growing, especially after the viral success of “I Know”.
“I Know” made its way onto the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring, while the “I Know (PRISVX Edit)” climbed into the Top 50 of the US Spotify Chart and the Top 120 of the Global Spotify Chart. In less than one year, “I Know” has officially achieved RIAA Gold Certification and amassed over 128 million global streams, along with more than 7 million YouTube views, firmly establishing Kanii as a major force in the game.
Hailing from Washington D.C. and a former student of the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, Kanii has garnered a dedicated social media following with his distinctive brand of fresh and captivating pop-leaning tracks for audiences worldwide.
