REVIEW: R&B rising star Mahalia makes her debut

The Leicester native released her debut LP 'Love and Compromise'

Musician Mahalia performs during the TedxTeen 2016 London event at the IndigO2 in south London.

AFTER UNVEILING her latest single What You Did featuring fellow Brit
Ella Mai, breakout star Mahalia has released her highly anticipated debut album, Love and Compromise.

Currently enjoying the success of her latest summer single Simmer featuring Burna Boy, Mahalia’s debut album is the rich fruit of her developmental journey thus far.

On her debut LP, Mahalia’s playfully infectious spirit intertwines with her youthful charisma, idiosyncratic storytelling and consciousness – attributes that have set her apart from her peers and seen her become one of the UK’s most-loved rising stars.

Further production and writing turns come from the likes of Sounwave (Kendrick, St. Vin- cent, Schoolboy Q), DJ Dahi (Drake, Pusha T), Sam Dew (Zayn, Taylor Swift) and Pop Wansel (Ariana Grande, Alessia Cara) as well as long-time collaborator Maths Time Joy.

The record is executively produced by Felix Joseph who helps create the perfect sonic backdrop for Mahalia to shine and the result is a future classic.

The Leicester native has enjoyed an incredible 12 months, quickly becoming one of the year’s most exciting breakthrough artists.

She rode fast in her own lane, winning YouTube’s inaugural One To Watch, and is the only musician to be tipped for both the BRIT’s Critics Choice Award and the BBC Sound Poll short- lists earlier this year.

In addition, last week she was honoured within YouTube’s Artist On The Rise campaign. Mahalia found success via her uncompromising, buoyant songs such as Sober her debut single, and One Night Only, a single which was taken from her hotly acclaimed 2018 EP Seasons.
