Mahalia – No Reply mp3 download
Mahalia comes through with a new song called No Reply. Mahalia is a singer-songwriter from Leicester, a city in the middle of the U.K., who was raised on Erykah Badu and the Fugees. Those influences are plain to hear in her debut single, “Sober,” where a chilled boom-bap beat (courtesy of Maths Time Joy) rides underneath her biting message to an ex.
“I don’t drink a lot, but when I do, I get all up in my feelings.” “I’m one of those muppets who has a drink and lays everything out on the table in a messy text or call…Not one of my best qualities. But I wanted to write about it. I’ve been in a couple relationships where I just felt like I was so blinded by love, I couldn’t see what they were doing to me. Alcohol is the one thing that always brought my emotions to the surface. ‘Sober’ is about the wake-up. The realisation. That moment when you finally understand that it was all bullshit.
The singer started writing songs at an early age, with encouragement from her musical family, and she always carried a passion for the creative arts. Mahalia’s music is wise beyond her years and some. It’s getting harder to find R&B songs from ’90s born artists that don’t include an overabundance of Instagram references and chatter about designer clothes, but this profound voice is hellbent on keeping her songs clutter-free.
