88rising have released their second collaborative album titled Head In the Clouds II via 88rising Records and 12Tone Music

Coming out a little over a year after their first album, Head In The Clouds, the effort is undoubtedly 88rising's best project to date. Head In The Clouds II is packed with huge artists and even bigger collaborations, including omnipresent EDM supergroup Major Lazer, Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee, Chinese pop star Jackson Wang, YouTuber turned hit artist Joji, Chinese rap group Higher Brothers, Indonesian rising star Rich Brian, and many more. 

As fans would expect, each track fits the laid-back, moody vibe 88rising normally curate - with the exception of "Hopscotch," where Rich Brian, Joji, AUGUST 08, and Barney Bone go in on a minimalistic trap beat. NIKI stands out on her solo track "Indigo," coming for necks on the Billboard Hot 100 as her sultry vocals wrap around an addictive beat effortlessly. NIKI and Rich Brian shine on "Shouldn't Couldn't Wouldn't," as the pair show off their chemistry in the slow, melodic ballad.
