Nikki Flores landed a music contract with Epic Records in 2005. Her parents—both musicians themselves—encouraged her talent by allowing her to record in the family's home studio and by age 12 she had written her first song ("Cry"). Flores planned to release her debut album "This Girl" in Fall 2005. The first single off This Girl was "Strike", where Flores sings in both English and Spanish. The album was eventually shelved and she was signed under Ryan Tedder's own Patriot Records which is under Universal Republic. After almost 10 years of professional experience in the music industry, Flores is actively pursuing a full-time career as a songwriter under the direction of Sony/ATV Music Publishing where she has been signed as a writer since 2006. She most recently has written songs for Christina Aguilera, Nas, South Korean pop group Miss A, Shontelle and many more.
Flores collaborated with producer Brian Kennedy to create her biggest (and most personal) song to date, "Let It Slide", with over 18,000,000 viral views. She claims to be most proud of this song because of how relatable it is to her audience. "I was only writing about something that was so true for me in my life at that time. I released it on a whim and the response I got was overwhelming." she says. "The messages I receive from girls all over the world, telling me that my song saved them from going back to an abusive relationship, or gave them the strength they needed to move on, is exactly why I do what I do. Music reaches so many people, and I'm so proud to spread a positive message".
On June 16, 2014 Nikki Flores announced she would be releasing a new song titled, "Home" - available on iTunes July 01, 2014.
