Niykee Heaton Ups The Tempo With Catchy Banger “Best Thing Ever”
Niykee Heaton’s SoundCloud is the gift that keeps on giving. After dropping a pair of acoustic ballads (“Infinity” and “Lullaby”) and a string of dark, brooding anthems (“21 Grams” and “King”), the 20-year-old ups the tempo with perky club banger “Best Thing Ever.” The internet-breaking diva debuted the track on the second night of her Bedroom Tour in Houston, Texas and decided to share it after the enthusiastic response.
“Best Thing Ever” is the closest Niykee has come to making a commercial hip-hop/pop song. The DJ Mustard-channelling beat is bouncy as anything you’ll hear on rhythmic radio and she delivers breathy lines about keeping her man in check with ridiculous ease. More impressive yet is the catchy chorus, which gets stuck in your head after the first listen. Check out the latest gem to escape the Bad Intentions babe’s laptop below.
