    Nikka Costa has released the first in a series of EPs, Pro*Whoa!, via her own label, Gofunkyourself Records. Available on tour and at digital retailers, the six new tracks range from the rock infused first single "Nylons in a Rip" to the breathy and soft "Head First."

    Having recently opened for Prince during his run at LA's The Forum, Nikka Costa is heading out on the road in support of her new release including select dates with INXS, whom she collaborated with on the album Original Sin. To prepare for her coast-to-coast journey, she needed an intensive workout including requisite microphone curls. Check out this training montage, set to the EP's title track, to see how the "funky white bitch" gets pumped up by going here.
