Love, love, love this…………..
Neo-soul / r&B artist Lola Young drops ,the official video for her hot cut “Pick Me Up”….
A track from her New EP, “Renaissance” on Capitol Records, which is slated for 21st April 2020 release.
This talented 19-year-old South-Londoner is an artist who got all of us at Music Republic Magazine excited last year, when we nominated her as a “Hot Contender” for 2019 “Female Artist of The Year”.
That was when she was 18. We also showed love to her great track “6 Feet Under”. Check out Lola’s cool cuts “The Man” and “Blind Love”, too.
Young by name and by nature – but mature well beyond her years as an artist and songwriter. In her new video, Lola performs “Pick Me Up,” alone in her bedroom.
The clip was helmed by The Rest (Slowthai, Kojey Radical, Joy Crookes) – the duo that directed Young’s “Blind Love” video.
“Pick Me Up, is about love and the loss of it. It’s also meant to be a song about having anger towards someone but still wanting them regardless of how much they’ve let you down and not metaphorically picked you back up,” explains Lola Young.
“The writing process of this was super fun. I wrote to a beat that my friends made (Conor and will/Manuka) and it felt super special. My upcoming EP is based around love and longing, and being a young girl living in South London falling in and out of love.
“It’s a three-track EP that will hopefully take people on a short, but meaningful journey.”
