We are pleased to be premiering the new single from London-based vocalist, bassist and producer MEI.
‘Welcome The Royalty’ is an unapologetically fierce tune with an addictive Afrobeat, topped off by a hypnotising vocal performance. MEI commands the listener from the moment they press play.
The track is taken from her forthcoming sophomore EP ‘No Bad Days’, which releases tomorrow.
Speaking about the single, MEI comments: “Welcome the Royalty is a Black Girl Magic anthem! It was produced by my drummer Lady Groove and it was two blacks girls in room making a tune and going hard. So with this track we’re commanding the music industry and the world to not only make room for us but to welcome us. Summer is always when I feel my most confident, my skin glows, the golden tones show and I’m reminded that we’re queens.”
Known for her unique sound that encompasses R&B, Afrobeat and jazz influences, MEI was awarded the ‘Do It Differently Fund’ in December 2018 by Help Musician’s UK. The fast-rising artist has also previously supported Little Simz at the Roundhouse Rising Festival.
