After teaming up with Flo Rida, Cash Cash, Poo Bear and more, Nikki Vianna is ready to break out on her own. The New York City native -- who recently signed with Atlantic Records -- unveils her debut solo single, "Done," today (Oct. 19), and it's an undeniable banger.

The punchy pop jam details an on-and-off relationship that, while it's an emotional rollercoaster, always has the couple always finding their way back to each other. "We keep on saying that we're done/ But that's something we say when we're drunk/ Just to see if somebody gives up," Vianna sings on the pre-chorus over a bouncy synthesized beat, before declaring "I know you know we ain't done" after the beat drops.

In line with the song's upbeat melody, Vianna insists that the message of "Done" -- which was produced by Frequency (Bebe Rexha, French Montana) and was co-written by Nikki herself -- is a hopeful one, despite the back-and-forth of the relationship it describes. "There’s an underlying meaning about not giving up on other situations beyond relationships," she tells Billboard. "In life, you might want to give up, but you’re never going to. I definitely don’t!"

That's the same kind of mindset that helped Vianna land a record deal with Atlantic Records earlier this year. The label's vp of A&R Gina Tucci helped sign Vianna after being enthralled by her impassioned vocals and pop sensibilities, which is exactly what Vianna is hoping she'll convey in her solo music. 

“I’ve been through a lot on my road to get here," Vianna says. "I put all of that into my lyrics and words. Music helped me get past so many situations. I hope I can affect and help listeners in the same way. You can jam to what I’m putting out, but it might touch you too. I’d love to inspire. That’s what I’m here to do.”
