Track Of The Day 21/4 – Highlyy

'Time Like This'

Highlyy is making power moves. Still only 19 years old, her gorgeous debut single ‘Solider’ went viral, with fans swooning at her divine voice. Chalking up more than 30 million plays – and counting – the single became a breakout moment, with labels swarming towards her.

Newly signed to Motown Records UK/ EMI, Highlyy has received co-signs from the likes of Rema, Dave, Ms Banks, and R&B wonder-group FLO, but she’s still adjusting to the glare of the public eye.

Recently launching a live performance session series, she’s used the intimate clips to introduce her latest single. Out now, ‘Time Like This’ glimmers with soulful appeal, the pristine production serving to place focus on that incredible natural instrument – her voice.

Beautifully weighted, ‘Time Like This’ finds Highlyy – real name Highly Blessed – speaking from the heart. A song about cherishing the moment, she seems able to stop time, to make you pause and appreciate the setting you’re in.

The best part? This is only the beginning.
