The heartfelt R&B cut sees a more raw and honest side of Leigh-Anne as she explores the darker sides to love. Pairing soulful lyrics with an infectious instrumental and distorted vocal loop, ‘Stealin’ Love’ is the first of a collection of songs that perfectly showcases Leigh-Anne’s artistry and sonic direction as an artist. Produced by Ian Kirkpatrick (Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez), the track was written by Leigh-Anne alongside collaborators Jermaine Jackson, Philip Plested and RØMANS.

Talking about the track, Leigh-Anne explains: “‘Stealin’ Love’ speaks to those times when you feel like you are pouring so much love into someone and not getting what you need back. I think it’s incredibly powerful to be open and honest about these moments.”

Last week Leigh-Anne shared that ‘Stealin’ Love’ is the first of a collection of songs she created whilst working on her debut album: “I’ve been writing & recording so much working on my album but while making it, I’ve made a collection of songs that fit together in their own world. The first song is coming next week and then I’ll be sharing more new music in the following weeks. Sh*t’s about to get very real…”

‘Stealin’ Love’ follows on from the garage-infused ‘Don’t Say Love’ and the Ayra Starr assisted ‘My Love’ as Leigh-Anne continues to cement her rebirth as a solo artist.

As a solo artist, Leigh-Anne has quickly amassed over 60M global streams, earnt two UK top 40 singles and graced the cover of countless publications including Rolling Stone UK, Glamour and Tush. Experimenting with new sounds, ‘Don’t Say Love’ and ‘My Love’ have so far seen Leigh-Anne embrace genres such as Garage and Afrobeats. Her upcoming track ‘Stealin Love’ sees a more raw and honest side of Leigh-Anne as she explores the darker sides to love through this R&B cut. Pairing soulful lyrics with an infectious instrumental and distorted vocal loop, ‘Stealin Love’ is the first of a collection of songs that perfectly showcases Leigh-Anne’s artistry and sonic direction as an artist. Produced by Ian Kirkpatrick (Dua Lipa, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez), the track was written by Leigh-Anne alongside collaborators Jermaine Jackson, Philip Plested and RØMANS.

BEA AND HER BUSINESS SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘WOW!’ – OUT NOW

BEA AND HER BUSINESS

SHARES THE NEW SINGLE ‘WOW!’

UPCOMING DEBUT EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR INCLUDES A SOLD-OUT LONDON SHOW AT LAFAYETTE

Bea and her Business is just getting started, but the 19-year-old is already making waves in the UK and beyond. After achieving over 47 million streams for her debut EP ‘Introverted Extrovert’, her next release ‘Me Against My Head’ amplified her growing profile, achieving 959k streams and 2.8 million TikTok views, growing her TikTok profile to 1.6 million. Now Bea takes the next step in her rise by sharing the new single ‘WOW!’.

‘WOW!’ reaffirms that Bea and Her Business is an artist with the ability to express a whirlwind of coming-of-age emotions within her instantly engaging pop earworms. It’s a song about the exhilaration and anticipation of suddenly being infatuated with a boy who looks “like a God in the middle of the street,” but also the confusion that comes with not knowing what to do about it – all ensuring that Bea’s self-deprecating humour will speak to anyone who has been through the same thing. The song effortlessly captures that rush of excitement as it bursts from Bea’s scene-setting verses into a joyously irresistible funk-fuelled hook.

Bea says, “I wrote this song at 17, at a time in my life where everything to do with falling in love was incredibly cringe and despicable, ha! So I basically turned the whole song into a joke to mirror the fact that I thought I was a joke of a human being for lowkey falling in love with this guy I’d been seeing for 3 days LOL! Hence the ‘I’m a wetwipe’ line. He dumped me soon after but at least I got the song!

This song is definitely for the people who think they’re super badass and cold-hearted but deep down they’re absolute suckers for a bit of romance.”

Bea wrote ‘WOW!’ with Hiten & Bhav and was completed with producer Stuart Price.

Bea’s songs connect with fans so naturally as her conversational stories reflect the experiences that so many of them are going through. They can be light, witty, and playful: see how ‘All The Boys’ finds both the humour and sadness in realising that all the effort you’ve made to attract a love interest has been in vain. Yet she is just as articulate in exploring weightier issues, such as the struggles with body confidence and social vulnerabilities that she shares in ‘Me Against My Head’. Collectively, her growing catalogue positions her as this generation’s answer to Lily Allen, but with a contemporary touch that will also speak to fans of Olivia Rodrigo and Lana Del Rey.

Also influenced by poetry, especially Kate Bingham and Leonard Cohen, Bea has been writing songs since childhood while her first following was established after sharing her takes on some of her favourite songs via social media. Her debut single ‘Born To Be Alive’ made a huge impact, as it exceeded 25 million streams, landed her first Radio 1 airplay, and even raced up the Nordic charts, while the subsequent ‘Introverted Extrovert’ EP cemented her reputation as an artist to watch. ‘Me Against My Head’ continued that momentum, her relatable humour and warmth at socials helping to contribute to 10,000 pre-saves for the track.

Yet while her growing online following is undeniable, she is quickly establishing an IRL fanbase too. Her first public performance came in front of a huge festival audience in Oslo, while back home in London she sold-out her first full headline show at Omeara. She then confirmed details of her first full European headline tour, and strong demand for tickets resulted in her London and Cologne dates selling out weeks in advance. Limited tickets for the rest of the tour, scheduled below, are available HERE.
