Brooklyn native Iniko is one of the new voices leading a vanguard of alternative soul singers. The multi-faceted artist’s “The King’s Affirmation” could be heard all over TikTok and IG Reels, as fans flocked to the sound to accompany their positive and high-energy videos.
To date, the song’s opening verse has garnered over 30 million views across social media platforms, stamping Iniko’s celestial tone into the canon of virality. Delving into their discography from the past few years (“Luna,” “Hourglass”) reveals an artist unafraid to use their voice as an instrument to spread messages of love, power, and divinity.
