The former boy bander, Niall Horan, solidifies himself as a solo artist with the release of “Heaven.” The first single off his upcoming third album, “The Show,” proves to be a viral hit. Sharing that he was anxious on social media, proved to be unwarranted. This single was just what he needed to put himself in the running with his former bandmates.
After months of teasing fans on his TikTok with snippets of chords, the melody, and then finally the main riff, “Heaven” was released on February 17th. “Heaven” debuted at #25 on the global Spotify chart with 2.566 million streams.
The single has a clear retro vibe circa the 1960s (think The Beach Boys & Eagles) but with a modern-day twist. The recipe for success with this song? An upbeat tempo that is coupled with breathy vocals, deep baselines, and catchy lyrics. “Heaven” is out now and available to stream on all platforms.
