Niykee Heaton, a singer from Illinois, is an inspirational woman who wrote her first song when she was only five years old. In her past, she was forced to face bullying, family problems, the loss of her older sister to cancer, and problems with her weight. Despite all these negative factors affecting her early life, she learned to overcome them by using these painful memories as inspiration for her lyrics. In addition, she has overcome criticism of her weight by embracing her body shape and wearing what she feels beautiful in. She has become in inspiration to curvy women everywhere who struggle with accepting their bodies.
Her songs are mainly slow, acoustic tracks, with a hint of hip-hop that flaunts her incredible vocals. Niykee Heaton’s most famous song is “Bad Intentions” featuring Migos. This song has a sensual vibe to it that fits perfectly in her 2016 album The Bedroom Tour Playlist.
Lucky for those of us living in DC, Niykee Heaton will be performing at 9:30 Club on November 29th. Doors open at 7pm. Get your tickets here before she sells out.
