Ashnikko - Daisy. An exclusive performance for Vevo DSCVR, the channel for the best in new music.
Watch out, Ashnikko is here. The trash-talking pixie known for her eff-off attitude has been killin’ it lately. Makes sense, too: Killing things is part of her persona. “Deal With It,” her anti-boy anthem with Kelis, racked up millions of views in just a few days. Its pirate-ship setting positions her as both Jack Sparrow’s emo daughter and the vid's menacing sea-monster. Speaking of menace, the North Carolina native’s bloody “STUPID” vid with Yung Baby Tate will pass 50 million views any day now. The suburb on which Ashnikko wreaks havoc in that one probably looks a bit like the sleepy Greensboro suburb in which she grew up. Anyone who needs primer on the 24-year-old, whose real name is Ashton Casey, should just think of her blue hair as a metaphor for her sound - totally wild and reliably ambitious. The tips of the hair spikes she sports in her DSCVR session are definitely sharp; so is her performance. Careful: if you watch “Deal With It” and “Daisy” enough times, you might start growing little devil horns.
