J’Nique Nicole is a singer/songwriter based in Tokyo, Japan. She is
known for her songwriting and vocal contributions to the award winning video game from
Square Enix called NieR: Automata. She has also gained notoriety as the backing vocalist for two prominent artists on the Japanese R&B scene, Kubota Toshinobu and Ai.

She got her start by participating in several choirs and musical groups which have
allowed her the versatility to sing various music genres, including Classical, Jazz, R&B, Pop, and Gospel. This has also given her the freedom to sing in many different venues all over Japan.

She did her first major gig singing backing vocals for the Grammy Award-winning singer/
songwriter, Ashanti, in October of 2013. Now, 5 years later, J’Nique has done 4 major tours
including Ai’s The Best Tour, Ai’s Wa to Yo Tour, Kubota’s LOK Tour and Kubota’s The House Party Tour. J’Nique also sang and wrote the lyrics for NieR: Automata’s theme song called “Weight of the World”. She lent her vocals to several other tracks on the soundtrack such as “A Beautiful Song” and “Memories of Dust” as well. Nier: Automata has sold over 4 million units worldwide and is followed by an equally successful soundtrack and 2 concert DVD/Blu-Ray discs. It has been nominated for and won countless awards including one for Best Score/Soundtrack. J’Nique herself won the award for Outstanding Solo Artist for her contributions.

The 31-year-old has the ability to sing in both English and Japanese, although her
personal music catalog is predominantly in English. She is set to release her very first EP titled This Is Only The Beginning, abbreviated as TIOTB, in 2019. The upcoming project will include her first official single, Black Girl Magic as well as her current single, BAE.
