Nicole Renee (born Nicole Renee Harris in 1975 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) was a female R&B singer from the 90’s. She used to be one of the hosts of “Teen Summit” on the B.E.T. Network for 4 years.

Originally, Nicole was looking forward to a career in classical music, but her focus shifted towards R&B music and she was signed to Atlantic Records in 1998.

During that same year, Nicole released her one and only self-titled debut album which didn’t appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts. She had written, produced and arranged most of the songs on her album. Nicole’s first single “Strawberry” peaked at #83 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #41 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 15 weeks.

Her follow-up single “Ain’t Nothin’ Changed” failed to make to the Billboard music charts at all.

Nicole has provided background vocals for artists such as Chantay Savage (for the song, “All Night All Day”), Elusion (for the song, “Medicine”), Anastacia (for the song “I Thought I Told You That” which she also co-wrote), Keystone (for the song, “Let Me Know”), and Tyrese (for the song, “Criminal Mind”). She has also written songs for Deborah Cox, Forte, CoCo Lee, 702, and Planet Soul.

These days, she owns her own real estate business in Philadelphia according to a YouTube comment.
