Rising Liverpudlian pop star Chelcee Grimes bursts back onto the scene with her latest release ‘Girls’ – a glossy, accomplished banger that will continue the interest around an artist able to balance vivid, frank lyricism with inescapable hooks and melodic ability.
Chelcee emerged last June with her first single ‘Just Like That’, which was only intended to be a soft release but immediately grabbed a Spotify New Music Friday placement, with heavyweight tastemakers including MTV and Cosmopolitan all proclaiming her a serious new talent.
The 26-year-old is also one of the hottest songwriters in the industry right now, penning tracks for superstars including Dua Lipa, Little Mix, Tom Walker and Zara Larsson amongst others.

Alongside a stellar musical career, Chelcee is also a professional footballer – starting her career at Liverpool ladies at ten years old before moving on to Everton, Tottenham, Tranmere and now Fulham.
With ‘Girls’ dropping imminently, the summer will see her presenting on the BBC for the FIFA Womens World Cup in France, having previously worked with BBC Sport on her own show ‘Chelcee Away’, which sees her host her music friends at football games. A second series running alongside the Women’s World Cup is planned.
She has also notably just become the first female presenter on Copa90, the most watched football channel online with half a billion views last year. With the kind of natural musical talent and charisma to make it in two professional industries simultaneously, Chelcee is clearly a double threat to be reckoned with.
