“High School in Jakarta” dirilis menyusul single “Oceans & Engines,” sebuah balada penyayat hati tentang menyudahi sebuah hubungan yang rusak, suatu momen kejelasan yang berapi-api dan menampilkan kemampuan NIKI menulis lagu. Dalam waktu yang singkat setelah dirilis, lagu ini berhasil mengumpulkan 7 juta streams dan 2 juta views pada video musiknya. NIKI pertama kali mengumumkan perilisan album Nicole dengan merilis single utama yang berjudul “Before”, sebuah lagu reflektif sarat nostalgia yang setelah perilisannya menerima sejumlah pujian dari NME, UPROXX, dan Teen Vogue yang memuji lagu ini karena berhasil “dengan sempurna menyoroti kecakapan menulis lagu NIKI.” Kedua trek akan muncul di album Nicole.

NIKI baru saja mengumumkan tur solo Amerika Utara pertamanya, “The Nicole Tour” yang tiketnya hampir terjual habis pada periode pra-pesan dan dalam 3 jam pertama penjualan umum. Tur ini akan dimulai di Vancouver, BC pada tanggal 8 September, dengan perhentian di kota-kota besar antara lain New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, dan banyak lagi, sebelum kemudian ditutup di The Wiltern, Los Angeles pada 22 Oktober.

Didn’t You Hear Amanda’s Moving Back To Colorado?
It’s 2013 And The End Of My Life
Freshman’s Year’s About To Plummet Just A Little Harder
But It Didn’t ‘Cause We Kissed On That Halloween Night
I Bleached Half My Hair When I Saw Zoe On Your Vespa
It Was Orange From Three Percent Peroxide, Thanks To You
I Needed A Good Cry, I Headed Right To Kendra’s
I Hated You And I Hoped To God That You Knew
Now There’s Drama (Drama)
Found A Club For That
Where I Met Ya (Met Ya)
Had A Heart Attack
Yadda Yadda
At The End, Yeah! We Burned
Made A Couplе U-Turns
You Were It ‘Til You Werеn’t
High School In Jakarta, Sorta Modern Sparta
Had No Chance Against The Teenage Suburban Armadas
We Were A Sonata, Thanks To Tight-Lipped Fathers
Yeah! Living Under That Was Hard, But I Loved You Harder
High School In Jakarta, An Elaborate Saga
I Still Hate You For Making Me Wish I Came Out Smarter
You Love Or Hate Mother? So Do I
Could’ve Ended Different
Then Again We Went To High School In Jakarta
Got A Group Assignment
I’ll Be At Vall’s Place
You Don’t Text At All
And Only Call When You’re Off Your Face
I’m Petty And Say, “Call Me When You’re Not Unstable”
I Lie And Tell You I’ll Be Getting Drunk At Rachel’s
I Wasn’t
She Doesn’t Even Drink
But I Couldn’t Have You Sit There And Think
That You’re Better, ‘Cause You’re Older
Are You Better, Now That We’re Older?
High School In Jakarta, Sorta Modern Sparta
Had No Chance Against The Teenage Suburban Armadas
We Were A Sonata, Thanks To Tight-Lipped Fathers
Yeah! Living Under That Was Hard, But I Loved You Harder
High School In Jakarta, An Elaborate Saga
I Still Hate You For Making Me Wish I Came Out Smarter
You Love Or Hate Mother? So Do I
Could’ve Ended Different
Then Again We Went To High School In Jakarta
Natasha’s Moving To New York (New York)
Probably Sometime In August
And I’m Spending The Summer In Singapore
I’m So Sad, I Can’t Tell You Shit Anymore
I Made Friends With Abby This Year
We’re Moving In, In March Or So
And Although You Bring Me To Tears
I’m Glad That We Gave It A Go
High School In Jakarta, American Summer
Had No Chance Against The Marxist Girl With Marijuana
I Was Your Piñata, She Was A Star-Charter
Glad She Gave It To You Real Hard, But I Loved You Harder
High School In Jakarta, I Won’t, But I Wanna
Ask You When You Talk About, Do I Ever Come Up?
Say Thanks To Your Mama, Now We’re Through
Could’ve Ended Different
Then Again We Went To High School In Jakarta
