Following the release of her new EP ‘Call Me When You Get This’, rising star Dakota, the voice behind Jonas Blue’s smash hit multi-platinum selling single ‘Fast Car’ has revealed the video for her latin inspired summer hit ‘Hey Mama’. The track follows previous singles ‘Sober’, which features BBC Sound of 2018 nominee Not3s, and the bass-driven ‘Hate Loving You’. Having grown up in Spain, but now based in south London, Dakota was first spotted by Grammy Award winning writer/producer Fraser T. Smith (the man who produced Stormzy’s album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’) who signed her to his 70Hz label in 2015.

Dakota has been in close collaboration with Fraser ever since, and spent 2017 working with songwriters such as Jamie Scott (One Direction, Rag’N’Bone Man) and Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine), honing her distinct vocal style and drawing on her diverse influences.
