Following on from her recent comeback singles ‘Letter To Ur Ex’ and ‘Whatever Simon Says’ earlier this year, Mahalia is back once again with another stunning offering.
The new track 'In The Club' sees her sample the classic 50 Cent anthem 'In Da Club', and was produced by JD Reid (Slow Thai, Skepta, Mabel) and written by Mahalia and Ben Hart.
Speaking about the new release, she said, “‘In the club’ is a song about letting go of people who are just plain and simply bad for you. I grew up in a small town in Leicester and most people didn’t believe that I could make it as an artist. I had a super small group of friends and a lot of people weren’t really ever interested in talking to me or being friends with me and mine... until I started doing well. I’d come home for Christmas and people would start acting like we’d been friends forever. They’d ask about London and my life as if we’d been close since kids. I always found that very bizarre. As a person who has never measured someone’s likability by their success, I always hated that type of behaviour and so wanted to write about it. It also applied to people I met later in life. Who only stuck around for the good bits and left for the bad.”
