As she shares a producer with Drake, stars in independent films and goes viral on YouTube with her sticky, soul flow slow jams, English rising star Mahalia maintains a modicum of cool. A product of Leicester, she has been gradually building a profile through her teen years and now, at the ripe old age of 19, is ready to hit the world stage. Cuts like ‘Sober’ will aid this transition - packing a drunk-dial topic we can all relate to and arriving fresher than a freezing winters morning. So far she has released a couple of EP’s and featured on the title track of Rudimental’s We The Generation album, but you get the feeling the plane is really only just on the runway for Mahalia. Come see her take off.
