Following her impressive and ambitious debut single 'Down', pop's new game changer Amelia Payne is back with her empowering new single 'The Battle'.
Produced by Toby Scott (Little Mix, Gorgon City, Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud) who also co-wrote the track with Amelia, 'The Battle' delivers a compelling message of standing up for yourself in any given situation that may try to bring you down. The infectious track leads with Amelia's resounding vocal, presiding over an uplifting chorus and a punchy bass-drop production.
Amelia says: "The track can be interpreted in different ways. It can be relevant to a relationship or something someone may be going through in life in general. The track's main message is saying that youíre not going to be taken for granted and you're "ready for the battle, for the war' to stand up for yourself with whatever the situation brings at you. I would say it's meant to empower whoever listens to it to help them get through it."
Hailing from Barbados, 19-year-old Payne spent 8 years living in Miami with her family before returning to her birthplace. From early days it was obvious singing was Ameliaís passion; she sung all the time and even got in trouble for singing out loud in class. Payne then started to develop her passion in singing, songwriting and dancing, honing her skills and taking her craft seriously. At just 13-years-old she remarkably recorded her first track which led to her talents being uncovered and aired on Bajan TV and radio.
Since her debut release 'Down', Amelia has garnered support from top tastemaker sites including The Line Of Best Fit, Popjustice, Going Solo, Wonderland Very Introspective, Spindle Magazine and across Hype Machine. Now residing in London full-time, Amelia is determined to make her mark in the UK and beyond bringing her raw, prodigious gift with her. She is currently working relentlessly on her forthcoming EP.
