Born and raised in East London, alternative R&B singer/songwriter M.I has gained a following over a number of years, after being crowned winner of BBC 1’s television series, Pitch Battle alongside her vocal group Leeds Contemporary Singers.
M.I has explored a variety of genres, but now is on the path of crafting a sound that is a true reflection of herself as an artist. In 2018 M.I decided to pursue a solo career and introduce herself into the music industry, she started gigging around Leeds and performed with the likes of Sampa The Great, Kelis and Will Young.
Taking influence from Jhene Aiko, Willow Smith and Rukhsana Merrise, Runaway has a smooth RnB vibe with M.I’s flawless vocal delivery.
Speaking on the release M.I says:
It’s about escapism. Wanting to get away from all your troubles with someone you want to spend all your time with. Being giddy. You know when you really like someone and just don’t know how to behave? and you carry on like an idiot? yeah that.
