A 21-year-old singer from south London has been hailed a ‘young Mary J Blige’ after hooking up with one of the superstar’s hit producers.
Selah, who has previously sang with Ms Dynamite and Lemar, is currently blowing up the airwaves with Because Of You – the latest drum and base track from veteran producer Blame.
The tune has caused a storm among top DJs, including Radio 1’s Sara Cox, Trevor Nelson and Zane Lowe.
