Nikki told fans on her blog at MySpace (@nikkiflores):
It’s FINALLY happening!!!!!!! MY first single under Patriot Records/Universal Republic is being released this Tuesday, and I literally can’t believe it. I feel like I’m dreaming! The first time I was signed I was just turning 15 years old, and here I am about to be 22 and those 7 years of hard work, blood, sweat, and LOTS of tears, are about to pay off. Praise God!!! So Tuesday, if it isn’t too much to ask, I would SO greatly appreciate it if you guys could all buy my song “City Lights” on itunes and call and request it at your favorite radio stations! I need your help! Together we can make this thing blow up and I can’t wait! I am SO thankful for all of you that have stuck with me on this crazy roller coaster ride. You guys are troopers, and all of your kind words and support kept me believing in myself and continuing to do music, when I thought I couldn’t anymore. So THANK YOU!!! From the bottom of my heart.

Nikki Flores updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@nikkiflores) on Thursday (June 25), talking about the sudden death of Michael Jackson earlier today in Los Angeles. Flores writes:
R.I.P. Michael Jackson
Current mood: distraught
We lost a legend today… God put him on this earth to bless us with his presence, his music, and his lyrics. He said it best: “We are the ones who make a brighter day so lets start giving.” Lets learn from him and change the world. Let his time here on earth teach us something. He so beautifully conveyed a message of peace and lending a hand where it is needed. MJ will be immortal through his music. Its our job now to pass on his songs and his message to the next generation. LETS KEEP HIM ALIVE! I feel so lucky and so blessed that I was alive to witness his incredible career. What an influence to have… My thoughts and prayers are with the family. God bless.
Nikki Flores checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@nikkiflores) on Wednesday (February 6). The Epic recording artist writes:
So, I get messages and comments every day asking when the album will be out. And my honest reply is, I’m not exactly sure. The music industry is going through such a rough patch right now, and in turn has made it so hard for a new artist to finally get the shot they deserve. BUT as always I’m still writing, still producing, and still trying to stay true to myself. If I lost all of this tomorrow, my deal, my album, the life I’ve become so accustomed to, I would still have the passion that God gave to me, as well as my pen and paper. So no matter what happens, I’m gonna be ok :) it took me a while to realize that. But now, my eyes are open, my head is held high, and my feet are on the ground.
