hmv's Next Big Thing... #86 Niykee Heaton

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you R&B superstar in waiting Niykee Heaton...


Who Is She?

21-year old Heaton hails from Illinois and is newly signed by Universal imprint Capitol Records. Like so many of the newly discovered brood of singer-songwriters she found fame on YouTube as she covered tracks from the likes of Chief Keef, Fetty Wap and Drake. Now making waves with her own brand of icy R'n'B, she's currently in the studio putting together her debut LP. 


Who Does She Sound Like?

This is classic R&B, clipped beats, dreamy soundscapes and biting vocals. Think vintage Aaliyah, TLC and Janet Jackson at her sassiest. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

Every track she's done, whether it be a cover or original, has been an absolute stormer. 


Can I Hear Something?

Absolutely. Her new single 'Bad Intentions' is below for you. You can preview and purchase her next mixtape The Bedroom Tour Playlist on the right-hand side of the page.
