BETTA LEMME Signs With Ultra Music; Announces Global Release of Bambola EP
Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Betta Lemme is excited to join the Ultra Music roster as she kicks off the global release of Bambola EP. The video for the title track has amassed over 40 million views on YouTube and 20,000 comments from fans all over the world since its launch last Fall. The single peaked on the charts at #1 in Israel, #4 in Italy, and #50 Worldwide and is approaching 8 million streams on Spotify. Before “Bambola,” Betta made her splash onto the scene co-writing and singing on Sofi Tukker‘s smash hit “Awoo” which has more than 10 million views on YouTube and almost 7 million streams on Spotify. While the numbers are quite compelling, what fans find most intriguing is Betta’s ability to seamlessly fuse French, Italian, and English throughout her songs. Additionally, Betta pulls from a range of her influences including old world music and classical music in tandem with her newly found love for dance pop to create the perfect banger.
Betta Lemme states: “My first EP tells the story behind my first single, “Bambola.” It is a dear diary peek into a moment that made my heart raw. I was apprehensive about releasing these songs because they felt too personal. It turns out there’s something beautifully rewarding in being honest, but I only realized that after the fact. The Bambola EP celebrates the ability to put feelings to rest and to pick up the pieces of yourself and proudly put them back together. These three songs explain the waves I had to swim through to become whole again.”
On signing with Ultra Music, she added: “There’s nothing more important to me than genuinely liking the people I choose to work with. I wanted to work with a label made up of a team of good-hearted and intelligent people who inspire me, whose enthusiasm for my visions were met and who challenged me with new ones. I’ve found that in Ultra Music.”

Betta Lemme plans to release a collection of singles throughout 2018 and 2019 via Ultra Music.
