Listen: RIIKI shares new song 'Good Times'.

Rising New Zealander RIIKI (real name Raquel Abolins -Reid) has shared a new song, 'Good Times', an upbeat call for optimism and a reminder that "after any bad experience and slump in your life, good times must follow."

About the song, RIIKI shares: "I truly believe in the quote that is ‘after any storm, there is a rainbow’. 2020 started on such a high for me, and then the world came crashing down. Covid-19 hit, my boyfriend broke up with me during the most heightened time of the pandemic, many issues in society had arisen and there was so much anger in the world. At one point I had lost so much motivation and would cry nearly every day, but I knew I wasn’t the only one going through the feels, in fact, I started to feel slightly overridden with guilt when I knew people were going through a lot worse than I was. Writing this song has and still is helping me through the shit 2020 has thrown at me and the world, it really feels like my moving on song onto greater and better things. I am hopeful that good changes and times are coming for everyone and myself.”
