One of the UK’s hottest artists for 2012, Misha B releases her debut single Home Run, released on 15th July, through Relentless Records.
The track takes Misha B in an unexpected, more adventurous direction than perhaps people would have anticipated. The jolting percussion and reggae-infused, drum and bass influenced beats come courtesy of rising UK producer MNEK. Combined with her soulful vocals, it brims over at its catchy hook to electric effect.
With remixes from Kat Krazy, Zed Bias and Taiki & Nulight this track is set to light up dancefloors over the summer.
“Home Run is about that special someone who gets you so excited, so hyped that you lose control! When I perform it, I feel that same energy on stage - it makes you wanna dance!” Misha enthused, “It is based on a ballad I wrote about my ex and I just changed it up to give it a fresh, fun vibe.”
Hailing from Manchester, 20-year old Misha B spent her formative years on the open mic circuit, working hard to hone her craft. She also began busking to over-come her stage fright, winning over crowds of hostile shoppers with her immense vocal abilities.
Bursting into the mainstream by way of the X-Factor, Misha wowed viewers with her unique talent and was hailed as one of the most exciting singers to emerge from the show.
Having amassed a huge following, including celebrities such as Missy Elliot clambering to work with her, she has 230,000 followers on Twitter, 63,000 fans on Facebook and has already had over 7 million views on YouTube.
Her fans, eagerly anticipating her next move, made it an instant online hit when her mixtape, “Why, Hello World”, dropped earlier this month, to rave reviews. Clocking up over 16,000 downloads and 25,000 streams, it became Radio 1Xtra’s mixtape of the week.
Working with a diverse range of producers including MNEK, TMS [Professor Green, Wretch 32] and Naughty Boy [Emeli Sande] on her upcoming debut album, Misha is pulling out all the stops and first single Home Run is just a taste of what’s to come.
