Raja Kumari Shares Music Video for New Single, “Shook”

Rock bands can have second acts, and Nine Days are just on the verge of their own. Sixteen years after the release of their hit album, The Madding Crowd, the band, formed by friends John Hampson and Brian Desveaux in 1994, is finally ready to release the proper follow-up in the form of Snapshots


Grammy nominated rapper/songwriter, Raja Kumari has released the high energy, beautifully shot video for her new single, “Shook.” Watch the video now below.

Indian-American rapper, singer, songwriter, and dancer Raja Kumari is a force of nature. A fearless, charismatic personality and natural-born storyteller, her mission is to create art that blends her Indian roots with her American upbringing. Her music is a sonic bridge between East and West that fuses the rhythms she absorbed as a trained classical Indian dancer with her love for hip-hop.

Kumari made her initial impact on global pop music as a sought-after songwriter. The creative force behind hits like Fall Out Boy’s multiplatinum smash “Centuries,” Iggy Azalea’s “Change Your Life” [feat. T.I.], Fifth Harmony’s “Like Mariah” [feat. Tyga], music for the hit Fox show “Empire,” and numerous anthems for Gwen Stefani have earned her acclaim and accolades across the board. Notably, she received a  GRAMMY® nomination for her work with Azelea and a BMI Pop Award for her work with Fall Out Boy. 

Emerging as a disruptive force in hip-hop in her own right, Kumari released her debut EP, The Come Up, in 2016. Her solo material has received acclaim and attention from the likes of BillboardPaper MagazineIdolatorand Complex and has been featured overseas by the likes of Rolling StoneVogueCosmopolitanHarper’s Bazaar and GQ in India. Recently she performed on the Red Bull Tour Bus tour which showcases breakthrough artists throughout India, and performed as a guest on Amazon Prime’s digital reality show “The Remix”. Sharing the stage with Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman on tour last year at the SSE Arena Wembley, as well as at the 2017 IIFA Awards at MetLife Stadium, Raja continues to collaborate with other artists throughout the world and was recently featured on the international banger “Vamos”, which cracked over 10 million YouTube views in under one week.  Now, with her forthcoming new EP, Raja Kumari is poised to be a global force in her own right.
