Lyrically tackling the topic of mental health, the 19 year old Brit School graduate expertly addresses the issues of today’s society with nothing but pure respect and sensitivity. The track, which is produced by UK producer Drifta, is also co-written by rising R&B star J Elle, who recently released her new EP ‘Between The Lines’.
When speaking of the single, Mia Mi said: “‘Talk To Me’ stemmed from the taboo topic of talking about mental health. It’s something that I hold very close and it effects both women and men everywhere. I wanted to create a song which was truthful but also warming, something that would make people check up on their friends and loved ones to make people feel safe. Talking allows you to find answers and it opens up your mind to new possibilities.”
Making music that reflects her upbringing and inspirations of British pop culture, Mia Mi first found her love for music when she won a local singing competition that she entered at just the age of 10. Having thrown herself headlong into her music, Mia enrolled at London’s Centre for Young Musicians, then the highly acclaimed Brit School. Following this, she went on to create a YouTube channel where her covers amassed thousands of views.
These opportunities gave Mia Mi the confidence to grow musically as an artist and lead her to become more open minded about her stylistic choices and her potential. She began write lyrics and small poems about personal situations she had been through as well as topics that affect today’s society.
“My love for singing grew along with my desire to inspire people and I want to be able to tell my stories from the perspective of a young british female in today’s world.“
