From August 15, a new song, “Baby You“, by Uchechi Emelonye, a fast rising artiste, will hit streaming platforms and music stores with strong appeal to music enthusiasts.

The 21-year-old Emelonye, an Afro-Soul singer cum multi-instrumentalist, has concluded all plans to unleash her artistic bundle as embodied in the fresh offering

The music act made this disclosure in a statement on Thursday saying that this track was coming on the heels of previous successes recorded by her earlier releases.

She said her earlier releases, ‘Little Black Bird’, ‘Sunrise To Sundown’ and ‘Underwater’, won the BBC Music Introducing ‘Record of the Year 2022’ in Lancashire, England.

She noted that the new single, ‘Baby You’, aligned  with her pattern of music, which addresses realistic themes everyone can relate with.

Emelonye said this was largely influenced by her interest in soul music legends as well as cultural assimilation occasioned by the privilege of being raised in seven countries and across three continents.

The singer said she had completed her undergraduate studies in law at the prestigious United Kingdom Russel League Lancaster University.

Noting that this portends positive signs for her music career as she could now concentrate to work on a full album, she revealed that her singles had gained enormous airplay across major Nigerian, British and American radio stations.

Huge interest has been evoked in her, evidenced by the numerous interviews she has done with radio personalities and on TV.

Her music video for ‘Little Black Bird’ directed by Nigerian Director, Sesan, is still being played on prime music channels and has garnered over 130,000 streams on YouTube.
