Mahalia is back with a new single called ‘Bag Of You’.
The track, produced by JD Reid and Max Pope, is the Leicester-based singer-songwriter’s first release since his EP, ‘Letter To Ur Ex’, which dropped earlier this year.
“This song is one of my favorites so far. Bag Of You’ is about that sweet spot in a relationship where everything is beautiful, where the thought of being without that person – even for a second – too much to do.” it,” said Mahalia, “I love everything on this record. It’s definitely the start of what’s to come next year.”
The track is expected to appear alongside the title track ‘Letter To Ur Ex’ on the as-yet-untitled follow-up to ‘Love and Compromise’ in 2019.

Earlier this week, Mahalia performed at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London for this year’s Music Industry Trust Awards ceremony, which was presented posthumously to the late Jamal Edwards. Little Simz, Jorja Smith and Max Cyrus also performed.
“The first time I met Jamal, I was 12 years old in a park at Bestival,” she said in a press release when her performance was first announced: “At first, he looked at me like I was on crazy and then he smiled and said, ‘Go ahead.’ A year later, he put me on SBTV for my first official online appearance. He was one of the first people to really believe in me and give me a platform, and I will always be indebted to him for I can’t to overemphasize his influence on popular music and the current state of the industry. I love you forever, James.”
Edwards, best known as the founder of SBTV, died in February at the age of 31. A coroner ruled in August that he died of a cardiac arrest caused by the use of cocaine.
