Mahalia is a UK born singer, songwriter and actress. She signed her first record deal aged 13 and since then has been nominated for a Brit Award, worked with Rudimental and appeared in the film ‘Brotherhood’ (2016).
Her debut album ‘Diary of Me’ (2016) was largely made up of guitar-driven tracks, but since then she has begun experimenting with her sound using influences of trap, soul, alternative R&B and even some electronica too.
The song I chose today is one of her more upbeat and commercial sounding records. It has a funky, summery vibe that makes me want to jump in the car with a group of friends and sing this out loud as we drive down the motorway.
