FOCUS MUSIC NEWS. BSHP RELEASES ACOUSTIC VIDEO FOR 'NEVER MIND'

Rising pop / R&B singer bshp releases her captivating acoustic version of her debut Island single 'NEVER MIND' accompanied by a retro pop art style video.

The new stripped backed version which focusses on bshp's sultry and enchanting voice along with colourful lighting projections in keeping with the playful pop elements of the song, is enough to hypnotise her fans as she sings blissfully but powerfully about not wanting a crush to waste her time – a familiar feeling most of us have had at some point in our lives!

bshp says:
'I'm so grateful for the support and love so far on 'Never Mind'. I can't believe I was able to hear my song on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast show! I'm excited to put out this acoustic version too, it's a nice change from the original, I hope you guys like it. Being able to shoot this during lockdown was a lot more fun than my weekly food shop. Big up everyone involved, thank you ❤️'

This follows her debut track release for 'Never Mind' a song that is full of pure female empowerment vibes and has already gained the support from the likes of BBC Radio 1's Best New Pop show with Mollie King and BBC Music Introducing Kent.

The Kent based singer who was previously known as Gabriella Vixen who has toured with the likes of Sigala as part of his 2020 UK nationwide tour, is best known for her cover of Des'ree's 'Kissing You'. Her cover caught the attention of Love Island producers and even Des'ree herself and was broadcast to set the scene of Nas and Demi's first kiss, gaining over 16k Shazams overnight and over 2 million streams organically.

bshp has undeniable vocal skills, with over 100,000 monthly Spotify listeners under her belt and previous support from the likes of Maya Jama, DJ Target, Twin B, Rebecca Judd and Manny Norte – with further tracks to come that will really pull at the heart strings as well as get people on their feet, she is certainly one to watch!
