Misha B Announces Debut Official Single!
The talented Manchester-born vocalist today previewed the debut pop single dubbed “Home Run” on BBC Radio 1Xtra, a few days after releasing her debut Mixtape titled “Why Hello World” which features a variety of genres.
Describing her mixtape, Misha B said : ” It’s a mix of songs I’ve been working on in the studio and songs by artists that inspire me. As I’m from Manchester there was only one choice when it came to mixing the tracks – one of the city’s finest DJ Stylus. Thanks for all your love and support – enjoy! Misha x”
The upcoming single “Home Run” which features on Misha’s debut mixtape is yet to be completed and is produced by fresh UK producer MNEK.
Misha B said the single would be officially released in July and judging by the preview featured on her mixtape, it certainly doesn’t dissappoint.
Misha B was a major highlight of the last season of the UK X Factor and mesmerised the judges and TV audiences alike with her versality, professionalism, vocal ability and stage presence.
Although she finished fourth in the competition, Misha B attracted the attention of major recording artists including hip hop queen Missy Elliot amongst many others keen to work with her.
There were reports of an alleged record bidding war over the singer-songwriter, rapper and all round performer and only recently was it confirmed that Misha B is now signed to Sony Relentless.
The Mixtape-Why Hello World
Misha B’s 15 minute mixtape features three original songs and several covers and remixes of songs by artists that inspire her in the order below:
1. Why Hello World Misha B Intro
2. Misha B – Big Dreaming
3. Weeknd ft Drake – Crew Love (Can’t You See Refix)
4. TLC – Unpretty Original / Misha B Cover (Cut)
5. Beyonce – Run the World (Stylus Refix)

Misha B’s decision to release a mixtape before an album is reminiscent of international rapper and pop sensation Nicki Minaj who released three mixtapes between 2007 and 2009 before getting caught up in a major record label bidding war.
Nicki Minaj is now the only female solo artist to have had seven singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart at the same time.
Given Misha B’s talent, it is hoped that her solo efforts will garner even more international acclaim.
