Nikki Hayes is back with a soothing new joint that's guaranteed to move you.
It's been 2 years since Nikki Hayes released her unforgettable record known as "Chance of Rain," in which she showcased her passionate angelic vocals, that easily placed her at the top of my list of upcoming R&B singers you should know.
After a slight hiatus and new location, 22 year old singer songwriter Nikki Hayes is back with yet another heartfelt record produced by Chris Curran, titled "Move." See what Nikki had to say about her upcoming release, as well as check out our exclusive Q&A below.
" Move is about being so attracted and drawn to someone that it makes you feel differently. Your qualities and set ways are challenged and it’s unknown what to make of it or how to react."
Bekoe: First I’d like to know what’s most important to you as an artist?
Nikki: What's most important to me as an artist is to always stay true to myself as an artist and person, to find balance between challenges and doing something out of my comfort zone with keeping the true essence of myself in everything that I do.
Bekoe: Share something about yourself that you feel people should know.
Nikki: Musically, everything I write about are from experience and things that I've felt at certain points in life. In each song, listeners are peeling back the layers of me and what I don't exactly show on a surface level.
Bekoe: What is something that every girl should tell herself when she wakes up in the morning?
Nikki: That they're beautiful and worthy of the greatness of life. How in life, everything is everything and most things are out of your control but the control is in yourself in the midst of that. With that mindset, you're capable of taking on and ruling every day.
Bekoe: You recently Relocated to Arizona. How has the transition for you been musically?
Nikki: Lately there's been a lot more to write about. The new energy has been very healing and very good for me as a person, thus an artist. The only thing is I wish I had more privacy to sing and write since I'm in a one-bedroom.
Bekoe: I’ve been a strong supporter of your music, but I have to ask why the 2 year gap in between singles?
Nikki: Constantly trying to grow has been the main reason, writing a lot more and finding the right production to go into the songs. I want to make sure everything I do is better than the last thing I did and that can take some time, self-searching and then putting it all to fruition.
Bekoe: Explain the writing process of “Move” as well as what you were going through when you wrote it.
Nikki: At the time, I was developing feelings for someone, more of a curiosity and heavy interest and I didn't know how to communicate that and was pretty terrible with it. I'm open and quite social, but very light and surface level for the most part and like most people, putting myself out there or being at a level of vulnerability with feelings, through natural, gives me anxiety and is quite scary for me. I struggle with communicating my feelings sometimes but especially at that time, partially because I was afraid to feel but also it can be hard communicating feelings when I'm trying to grasp and sort them out myself.
Bekoe: Is there a project in the works, if so when can we expect it’s release.
Nikki: Yes. TBD. ;)
Bekoe: I figured you'd say that lol. If you could create a collab album with any person in the industry, who would it be? Who would be the producer?
Nikki: I'm still trying to do that Chance collab haha. But I'd love to write with a lot of artists, Sia, NAO, Daniel Caesar, Brent Faiyaz. A producer I'm really loving right now and have been for a while is Grades.
Bekoe: Lastly when you’re back in Chicago, what would be the first restaurant you’ll visit
Nikki: Either Chicago Diner or Mandy's Soul Food.
