STAR WARZ: LIANE V. VS. NIYKEE HEATON

STAR WARZ: LIANE V. VS. NIYKEE HEATON
Match-Up: Liane V. vs. Niykee Heaton The War: Who’s Better? Match-Up Preview: Today, Kaboom! Magaizine.com competitive segment “Star Warz” features two of the most iconic people of the social media era. Liane V. took to social media to promote herself. She would begin by producing a consistent flow of videos performing familiar cover songs. She soon became a highly-popular sensation on Vine, where her fun-loving personality was on full display. From recording acoustic covers of rap songs in her bedroom to becoming the entire Internet’s Girl Next Door, Niykee Heaton is neck and neck with Kim Kardashian as the hottest woman on social media…except unlike Kim this beautiful woman from the Chi is very, very talented. To settle this dispute, Kaboom! Magazine.com will  go in-depth into both of the careers of Liane V. and Niykee Heaton to find out the answer to arguably one of the toughest question in social media history…….who’s better? Tale of the Tape: 10843907_374301516067064_1237934790_n Liane V. Age: 29 Hometown: Los Angeles, CA Occupation: Singer/Actress/Model/Fashion Designer Instagram Followers: 2.1 Million Twitter Followers: 111,400  Facebook Likes: 186,524 Vine Followers:  4.3 Million Notable Singles: “Whatch Gon Do”, “Don’t Be That Guy”, and “Reasons” Career Highlights: Liane V. placed third in the Miss Philippines Beauty Contest, and was a contestant in the Miss Asia USA Cultural Pageant. She has made appearances in videos by rapper Tyga, and Far East Movement. She accompanied Dev of the Pop-Dance group the Cataracts on tour as a back-up singer.As a TV commentator, Liane has been a red carpet host for such popular shows as The Voice, X-Factor and American Idol.In the spring of 2014, Liane launched her line of urban street ware called, Donut Headz. She would later expand her clothing brand empire with the release of the Noah collection in 2015. This year has also been great to her musically as she released her much-anticipated debut EP entitled “Lessons in Love” under Brand X networks. Strengths: Liane V. is a multiple threat, who sings, writes, dances, models, designs clothing, and acts. The camera absolutely loves her, as proven by her legion of fans that regularly flock to see her comedic video shorts on the Vine app. Liane V personifies today’s young up and coming multi-media star. She has been presented with a number of other opportunities that have further expanded her brand in music and beyond. Between her exposure on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Vine, her social media followers have grown past an astounding 8 million. Not bad for an artist that until 2014 had no major backing. Weaknesses: Sometimes people can be so good at one thing, that it completely over shadows all of their other talents. Seth McFarlane, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, and Anna Kendricks…all are amazing comedic performers, but what many don’t know is they’re also quite talented singers. Every time Liane V. post a new comedic vine, it immediately reaches over a million views within the 1st 48 hours. The same can’t be said about her music, none of Liane tracks have currently reached even close to 15% of her comedic social media views. Entertainers constantly have to evolve in order to stay relevant, but in some cases, fans don’t like for their favorite entertainers to change. Now there’s no doubt that Liane will be entertaining us for many more years to come, but at the end of her career, what does she want to be remembered for? A grammy award or the next funny youtube moment? niykee-heaton-nude-boobs-complex-magazine-1 Niykee Heaton Age: 20 Hometown: Chicago, IL Occupation: Singer/Model/Fashion Designer Instagram Followers: 1.5 Million Twitter Followers: 477,700 Facebook Likes: 611, 723 Vine Followers: 43,400  Notable Singles: “Villa”, “Natural Born Killers”, and “Bad Intentions” Career Highlights: In 2013, Niykee Heaton rocketed to fame after her acoustic cover of Chief Keef’s “Love Sosa”—filmed in her childhood bedroom—made its way to WorldStar, racking up more than a million views with white-hot speed. A label deal with All Def Digital quickly followed, and Heaton released her debut EP, Bad Intentions, last year. She recently introduced her genius in the fashion world with the launch of her “Natural Born Killers (NBK)” collection. Strengths: If the music industry could create the perfect pop star, it would look exactly like Ms. Niykee Heaton. She has the look of a young Mariah Carey, the voice of Alicia Keys, the songwriting ability of Taylor Swift, the innocent sex appeal of Britney Spears in her prime, and the rebel spirit of Pink. In 2015, Niykee got a chance to play her music for fellow Chicago native Kanye West. Heaton did leave a very lasting impression on Yeezus, as he began singing one of her favorite tracks infront of her. If Kanye is singing your songs, you’ve gotta be something very special. Weaknesses: We defiantly don’t know her personally, but from our history with the music industry, we do know that divas can be very hard to deal with. Now we’re not saying that Niykee is already one of the greatest divas of this generation, but even a diva in training can be a handful. Niykee was well on her way to superstardom with the release of her debut EP under All Def Music, but ended up hitting a wall with the label and later led to her asking for her walking papers. You would think that an can’t miss star on the rise like Niykee would be able to work with one of the pioneers in hip-hop Mr. Russell Simmons, but we guess not. Another major flaw in Niykee career is due to one of her greatest assets.As crazy as it may sound, she may be too beautiful to be taken serious as a recording artist. Every time Niykee releases a music single, she averages over 300,000 views, meanwhile when she post a new modeling photo on instagram she manages to average well over 500,000 likes. Very few artists have managed to convince fans that they are more than just something beautiful to look at. 21jlQuqq And the winner is……: If you were a record executive or talent manager, both Liane V. and Niykee Heaton would make you a very rich man. Both are amazing self-promoters and both have their own unique sound that will have millions and millions of fans buying their tracks on iTunes. Both are shining stars, but if we had to say which star we felt will shine the brightest, we would have to choose none other than…..Liane V. Liane and Niykee’s strengths and weaknesses are very similar, but when it comes down to it, Liane seems to be always evolving, while Niykee seems to continue to take two steps forward and three steps back. Niykee Heaton has everything it takes to be a mega pop star, but even though she’s had problems with one major label, why hasn’t every other music label beat down her door with one of the biggest deals ever for a debut artist? even Kanye West has sang her songs and seen her potential, but still didn’t sign Niykee to his label. Liane has not been a part of a major label yet, but has already shown major success with her label Brand X. Maturity is very important in the music industry and that may be the only edge Liane has over Niykee in this industry, it may not be much, but for this “Star Warz” feature, that’s all she needs.
