The first time this writer was introduced to the talents of Niki and Gabi was through their 2017 song “First.”
Gathering some of YouTube’s famed female content creators, the single is poppy and sugary sweet, but it had a charm that couldn’t be denied. With a carefree vibe, “First” has, up until this point, garnered nearly five million views on YouTube, and at the same time, launched this duo into the spotlight.
Niki and Gabi are twins, and their YouTube channel started in 2012, is marching toward the one billion views mark (it currently stands at over 777 million views). Their channel is filled with all sorts of content that many of YouTube’s younger audience, especially girls, will love. The content ranges from a “Night vs Day” makeup tutorial to the twins wearing their boyfriend’s clothes for a week.
But what sets this channel apart from its contemporaries is their music, which is just a vibrant and filled with the catchy pop sonics that has made the stars out of Ariana Grande and Camila Cabello. That’s what made “First” such a joy to listen to, and what will make their upcoming tour, the “Individual Tour,” one that many pop fans shouldn’t miss.
Here’s the complete tour itinerary, and keep in mind that all dates and venues are subject to change.
