In 2005, she released her self-titled debut album, which spawned top ten hits, Hell No! and Sunshine, both of which were certified gold by ARIA.

In 2006, she joined an Australian pop girl group, Young Divas, but left in early 2007 to resume her solo career.

She ended her contract with the independent label, Shock Records and signed with the major label, EMI Music Australia, in 2011.

Her third album, Fear and Freedom, became her first top-ten album and included platinum singles, Raining Diamonds and Do It Like That.

Her fourth album, Dance in the Rain, which was released in 2014 also followed the success of her previous releases.

Branching out her career from singing to TV and radio, she returned to 'Australian Idol' for the 6th and 7th season as a presenter and reporter.

In 2010, she was also a full-time radio presenter for Sydney’s Nova 96.9 breakfast show, alongside Scott Dooley and Merrick Watts.

After three-year hiatus, Ricki released a single, Not Too Late, in September 2017.
