Danielle Bellas gives you ‘StarShip’
Time to re-load your playlist with some more International flava! Australia-based R&B singer Danielle Bellas is getting ready to launch her music career with support from some of the biggest names on the music scene. Born and bred in SE London, Bellas has captured the attention of legendary music producer Rishi Rich, to create a fabulous remix of her debut single ‘Starship’, taken from her debut album which drops in 2018.
Danielle is a soulful, authentic artist with a bias towards Motown-tinged R&B/Pop, who knows what she wants. The single is the first offering from an exciting debut album, co-written and produced by UK-based production duo Jud Mahoney and Natalie DeLucia, who has worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Brandy and Britney Spears.
The sound offers a slick pop production featuring big hook-laden choruses and smooth lead vocals, influenced by the late 90’s R&B greats such as Janet Jackson, Aaliyah, and Ashanti. The single also boasts an official music video, and of course the remix from Rishi Rich and features additional haunting Hindi vocals by Kiran Dhanoa.
Danielle says of her debut single:
“I’ve grown up listening to R&B, Bollywood and of course Rishi! Getting Rishi’s support for my first track has been amazing and I’m thrilled to have been able to create something that showcases my musical inspirations.”
Although this is her debut release, Bellas was filling notepads full of lyrics from a young age and recorded her first single at 16. However, growing up in a home that encouraged education and a steady career over musical creativity meant her musical dreams remained on the sidelines.
