Last we heard from Niykee Heaton, she was linking up with Migos for the remix to "Bad Intentions." She's on her own this time around—and with a lot less cash by her side than in the "Bad Intentions" video—in her new song, "Good Girls."

"Good Girls" is a stylistic departure from her last song, with Heaton opting for sparse instrumentation this time around. A simple piano loop and a bit of bass accompany her vocals, as she attempts to convince you she's not so bad once you get to know her, despite her having a large and intimidating presence in person and on social media.

Beyond the change in style, it's also a big shift thematically from "Bad Intentions," which featured a video of her waltzing off with a duffel bag full of money as the Migos fought amongst themselves. A lot of people tend to view Heaton through that specific lens—a walking thirst trap that can mess up your whole day—and it seems she wants to correct that image a little bit.

As she told Complex back in 2015, however, Heaton tries not to worry too much about what the detractors think of her.

"The most important thing [my mother] taught me was that whatever people say about you is their projection of themselves," she said. "You can’t take that personally. When people say mean things to me, I pray for them, because you have to be a really fucked-up person to feel those things. You just have to feel bad for them."

Still, it can't hurt to show a softer side, and maybe it'll help win over some fans who weren't already rocking with Heaton. You can listen to the new song, "Good Girls," below.
