LA based Filipina R&B artist Kiana V’s released a brand new single “Heartbeat On Me” featuring fellow Filipino artist Jesse Barrera. Distilling pure and ethereal beauty, Kiana V’s new track is set to create  magical moments for the listener, and help her cement her rise as one of the most promising artists of the year. Musically, “Heartbeat On Me” is a vivid tribute to the concept of mixing influences and genres. Kiana V demonstrates her technical supremacy over other artists as she creates such a lavish and overflowing song.

Kiana says about the track: “‘Heartbeat On Me’ is a song about when you feel like you can really dive in and fall in love with someone, but you want to make sure the feeling is mutual first. You want to know that they’ll be there for you the way you are for them.”

As the press release notes: “Heartbeat on Me” opens with infectious synths and gently tapping drums, allowing Kiana V’s featherlight yet instantly striking voice to enter with a gentle immediacy. It’s a sunkissed delight that calls back to her native Philippines. Possessing the immediacy of Tinashe and the knack for undeniable melody of Aaliyah, Kiana is a powerhouse, possessing a quiet intensity that strikes bone deep.
