The formidable Ella Eyre today returns with her incredible brand-new single Mama out now on Island Records. Produced by Banx & Ranx and featuring Kiana Ledé, Mama beckons a new era for the 25-year-old singer-songwriter powerhouse and performer, as for the first time she arrives leading her own team, working on her own terms.
What started life as a straight break-up song has become an empowering anthem that refuses to let an ex get away with anything. It’s about standing up for yourself and making sure you’re not being bad mouthed to a family that you care about. Ella said, ” I can’t wait for my fans to hear my first single Mama! This one’s about standing up for yourself and making sure that if your relationship ends, your ex doesn’t get away with telling a bunch of lies to a family you care about. I hope you all feel as empowered and excited as I do!”
About Ella Eyre
Ella Eyre rose to prominence after featuring on vocals for Rudimental’s double platinum number one single Waiting All Night in 2014, which later won the BRIT Award for British Single of the Year. With two MOBO Awards, two further platinum selling singles and a top 5 album under her belt, perhaps you’d have expected Ella to rest on her laurels. In 2018, Ella released “Answerphone” with production duo Banx & Ranx featuring Yxng Bane. With a dance-hall inflected beat and Ella’s irresistible knack for a moreish, lovelorn hook, it was an instant hit with over 100,000,000 streams and counting. Answerphone’s success gave added confidence in her new direction, but Ella was still keen to find a new creative home for her work. One billion streams later and Ella is now signed to the legendary Island Records, the rest they say is history.
