Denmark's Nabiha is a soulful vocalist of both Danish and West African heritage who makes electronic dance-pop. Born Nabiha Bensouda in Copenhagen, Denmark, Nabiha grew up listening to her parents' eclectic record collection, which included reggae, R&B, disco, and traditional Malian music. Nabiha started making lasting connections in the EDM community performing under the name Tiger Lily while working with such luminaries as the duo Sucker DJs and Ben Macklin. Nabiha also did her own solo shows and in 2010 released her debut full-length album, Cracks. The following year an international version of the album, titled More Cracks, was released and featured the singles "Trouble" and "Never Played the Bass."
Her 2013 single, "Mind the Gap," hit number one in Denmark, and crossed over into other countries, including Belgium and Great Britain. Nabiha's sophomore effort, also titled Mind the Gap, arrived in 2013. The following year, the singles "Bang that Drum" and "Animals" peaked in the Danish Top Ten. In the U.S., it topped Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart. Nabiha stepped into the judge's chair for the 2015-2016 season of Denmark's Got Talent, and at the end of the year released the music video, My Truth. Nabiha returned at the beginning of 2017, with the release of the single, Young. ~ Matt Collar
