Biography

New York, United States

Natalie and Nicole Albino (born in New York City) are identical twin sisters who sing under the name “Nina Sky”. They are half-Puerto Rican and half-Dominican.

Their parents moved from Puerto Rico and were divorced when the girls were very young. The twins’ mother remarried with a DJ, who also happened to be Puerto Rican. They grew up in the Queens and Roosevelt Island sections of New York.

Since their stepfather worked as a DJ, the twins were influenced by different types of music. When the sisters were only 7 years old, they wrote their first song, “Sisters”, and by the time they were 10, they already knew that they wanted to become singers.

The twins’ parents were very supportive of their daughters’ ambitions. The stepfather even gave them guitar and drum lessons. They were taken to auditions and, on some occasions, they even performed on some showcases. The sisters wanted to come up with a name of their own and by using the first two syllables of their names “Ni” and “Na”, came up with Nina. They then added Sky, which for them represented “the sky’s the limit”.

They continued to go to school and, in their spare time, worked as DJ’s. In the year 2000, they met the Jettsonz, a pair of music producers who helped them develop their own sound.
