LOS ANGELES — Adult performer Nikki Phoenix and her music partner JackEL had the No. 1 trending single in the EDM category last week on Soundcloud with their hit "Your Smile."
The song has already received almost 1.5 million plays on Soundcloud with steady airplay on radio stations in Canada, Europe and now the U.S.
"We have been overwhelmed with the amount of support the song has gotten, not just from friends and industry supporters, but also EDM fans and DJs," Phoenix said.
"We knew we had a catchy song, but when the song began heavy rotation on radio stations, we knew we had something very special on our hands. As more and more radio stations picked up the single, we saw a dramatic increase in Soundcloud plays, and we were so humbled and flattered when the song trended as No. 1 in the EDM category last week on Soundcloud."
JackEL 'd Phoenix also is gearing up to release "Two Hearts," a collaboration with three-time Grammy winning artist, Skip Martin, and "Until" in June. Their songs are available for purchase across all digital media platforms thanks to the distribution deal signed by their Sights & Sounds record label.
This month Phoenix also closed a distribution deal for her DVD line with Juicy Entertainment. Phoenix's product will reflect her creative vision as well as "a strong female empowerment message."
"We could not wait to ink this deal with Nikki," said Jerry E., owner of Juicy Entertainment. "We feel very fortunate to represent Nikki and her brand, and to have secured this deal as she had a number of offers on the table.
"In the end we felt we had the best organization to represent her and her unique brand that capitalizes on not just her adult fans, but her huge mainstream and music fan base, which is something no other woman with a distribution deal has been able to tap into."
Phoenix also just completed the Badass Dash for Charity with her Extreme Circus Bootcamp team. The team donated all the proceeds to Autism Speaks. She's next appearing at Exxotica Chicago June 12-14 before featuring at Deja Vu Showgirls in Springfield, Ill., June 18-20.
