Song of the Day: Boyfriend – Tallia Storm

Housing previous support from DJ’s at BBC 1Xtra, BBC Introducing and Capital Xtra, 23-year-old TALLIA STORM‘s unapologetic new single ‘Boyfriend,’ is a masterclass in R&B-pop melodies, with a blinding bass-line and undulating infectious beat, that is reminiscent of classic 00s R&B. The lyrics are a poignant journey of trouble in young love over an immaculate Ray Michael Jnr production that fuses early 00s R&B, complete with electric guitar figures and trap flavours. With an ethos of self-confidence, saying the things we’re afraid to feel and being a champion of women in music, Tallia is poised to take the world by storm as she continues to chase the fast lane in the UK music scene.

Over the past year Tallia Storm has been working hard at placing herself as household rising star in the UK after being co-signed by Nile Rodgers and spent the start of the year working and writing with the Chic legend himself at the world famous Abbey Road Studios. Best known for being discovered by Sir Elton John at the tender age of 13 years old, 10 years on, Tallia Storm is still fighting to be heard as an independent female made in Scotland, with her fearless attitude and infectious confidence.

Tallia has graced the big screen from starring on E4’s Celebs Go Dating & ITVBe’s Real Housewives of Jersey as well as being one of the UK’s biggest celebrity TikTok’s. Tallia sees herself as an all-round entertainer which has allowed her personality to shine on TikTok which sees her have a 650,000 strong fan base hitting over 250 million views and 23 million likes on the app.

This is the first track of Tallia’s new era that is ready to be released single by single. Tallia has found her storm and is ready to be heard! Have a listen to ‘Boyfriend’ below…
