Mabel follows up BRIT Awards success with ‘Boyfriend’ single


Mabel has shared her incredible new single ‘Boyfriend’, which is available now on Polydor Records.

The track comes hot on the heels of Mabel winning Best British Female at this year’s BRIT Awards, where she also performed a show-stopping rendition of global smash ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ (and was joined on the red carpet by her mum, Neneh Cherry, thirty years to the date of her own BRIT win).

‘Boyfriend’ sees Mabel take another stride out on to pop’s world stage. An anthemic and unapologetic blast of 2020 girl-power, the track is a call-to-arms for not needing a man on anything other than your own terms.

Co-written by Mabel and fellow-hitmakers Steve Mac and Camille Purcell (the trio worked together previously on ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ and ‘Mad Love’), ‘Boyfriend’ is her first official solo single since debut album High Expectations, her smash collaboration with Tiesto (‘God Is A Dancer’) and this year’s beautiful, alternative Christmas ballad, ‘Loneliest Time Of The Year’.

Having just turned 24 – the day after her BRIT Award triumph, no less – Mabel now finds herself the leading light in UK pop. Since she quietly uploaded debut track ‘Know Me Better’ on to Soundcloud in 2015, her tireless worth ethic and candid storytelling has taken her to increasingly giddy-heights (and newfound levels of confidence).

‘Don’t Call Me Up’ was the biggest selling single of the year by a UK female artist in 2019 (with ‘Mad Love’ also in the annual top 10), having surpassed one million UK sales and one billion global streams and led to her debut album, High Expectations charting at #3 and landing in the UK’s top 10 best-selling debuts.
