Niykee Heaton Drops Gritty Demo “Rain Dog”: Listen To The Rising Diva’s Latest Gem
Niykee Heaton never sleeps. When she’s not posting eye-popping pics on Instagram or chilling with her super-babe manager, the rising diva is casually uploading new tunes to SoundCloud. The 19-year-old dropped a new demo called “Rain Dog” over the weekend and racked up 100,000 listens in less than 24 hours. It’s a testament to the newcomer’s loyal following and consistently great output.
The gritty demo represents something of a change of pace for the South African-born bombshell. She already mastered club-bangers (“Villa”) and mellow singer/songwriter fare (“Rolling Stone”) on well-received debut EP Bad Intentions, but “Rain Dog” finds Niykee in a darker, angrier mood. “It’s a fire on a stormy night,” snarls the rising star over a simple guitar arrangement. “See the smoke barrel in the sky.” Listen to the gem after the jump.
