Of the album title, Bus noted: KAIROS is the Greek word for “appointed time” She continues, “Everything is coming together at the right time.”
The movement began with the release of “You” paving the way for, KAIROS. The track jumped from No. 4 to No. 1 in just eight weeks on Billboard’s “Adult R&B Song” chart matching the fastest-rising Adult R&B No. 1 for a debut hit. The track remained at No. 1 for five weeks.
Two fiery remixes catapulted the song to garner streams that surpassed 10 million in a few months’ time with the help of Rap icon and Wu-Tang Clan member Ghostface Killah and Grammy-nominated Rap superstar, Rick Ross.
“You” also primed audiences for Nicole’s newest song, “Mr. Big Shot,” which debuted on NPR’s Tiny Desk series where her performance met much praise from the coveted platform which stated “Nicole Bus' sound is nostalgic. It's reminiscent of vintage R&B, yet still feels current, and can transcend age and demographics.”
Meanwhile, Bus’ unique sound has not gone unnoticed internationally either. With an applauded live performance on the popular Dutch TV show, “De Wereld Draait Door,” interviews with Vogue and Noisey, and being named Harpers Bazaar ‘Woman of the Week,’ all eyes are on Bus globally.
“Mr. Big Shot” is steadily growing and now sits at #20 on Billboard’s “Adult R&B Songs” chart.
