The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award is the highest honor from MTV and Niki is no joke.  She has been nominated 17 times and won Best Hip Hop Video back in 2011. She won “Best Female Video” in 2012 for “Starships.” She also won for “Anaconda” in 2015 and “Chun-Li” in 2018 and of course, again in 2019 for “Best Power Anthem” (“Hot Girl Summer”).

Niki has a new single called “Super Freaky Girl” which will be coming out on August 12th.
