Ashnikko Shares New Track ‘Cry’ Featuring Grimes

    Rising TikTok star Ashnikko has shared a new track featuring Grimes titled ‘Cry’. The new release from the North Carolina pop star, whose real name is Ashton Casey, is accompanied by a CGI-animated, anime-inspired music video directed by Mike Anderson. Check it out below.

    According to a press release, the video “depicts Ashnikko and Grimes mutating and metamorphosing into a demon alter ego of Ashnikko stalking her prey as the two sing ‘this could get gruesome’—the aftermath of a brutal betrayal.”

    “This is the winter of my discontent/ Everything else is irrelevant/ Are you trying to make me cry?” Grimes sings on the chorus, referencing a famous speech from Shakespeare’s Richard III.

    Ashnikko rose to prominence last year with her hit ‘STUPID’ feat. Yung Baby Tate, taken from her Hi, It’s Me EP. Grimes’ latest full-length album was this year’s Miss Anthropocene
