Rising pop star Celina Sharma reveals a new stunning debut EP “CECE” featuring new single “Lights Down” featuring Ivorian Doll and Stonebwoy

Following her latest single Bad For You‘ demonstrated why there is so much excitement around Celina Sharma, and on CECE, the young musician continues to showcase her innate talent to create bright & brilliant pop-leaning R&B. Her sonic tapestry remains diverse – with the influence of soul queens such as Whitney Houston being easy to hear as much as the punchy, trap-inspired beats of her compatriots Ariana Grande or SZA are.

The new single ‘Lights Down’ sees Sharma’s sleek vocals accompanied by Ghana’s ‘King of Reggae and Dancehall’ Stonebwoy as well as the quick-fire bars of Ivorian Doll. It’s already been a festival hit this summer, with Sharma and Ivorian Doll wowing the crowds at Wireless, Reading, and Parklife festivals in recent months. Now, it’s set to take over the airwaves.

Celina shares about the new single, “‘Lights Down’ is such a vibey feel-good song, I had so much fun writing it. I was in Los Angeles at the time, so I think the sun, beaches, and good vibes of LA really put me in that place!”

After making the difficult decision to relocate to the UK from Australia to pursue music full-time, the day before she was due to start her final year of high school, she instantly attacked the challenge with all her might and determination. It certainly paid off, as the Mugal Records signee left her imprint on the music industry via singles ‘CHALO’ and ‘Lean On‘ (featuring Indian rapper Emiway Bantai) – with the latter achieving double-platinum status with support from the BBC’s Asian Network1Xtra, and Radio 1.

She adds, “I guess in a way this EP has been a process of self-discovery”, confesses Celina“The project took over a year of songwriting and experimenting with different styles and sounds, whilst I personally was experiencing a wave of different emotions. CECE represents the other side of me, my alter ego that bears it all in regard to my personal feelings and situations I’ve experienced. I think some of these topics it touches on will be relatable to many!”

Oscar-winning director Chloé Zhao reached out to Celina to ask her to record the soundtrack for the forthcoming blockbuster Marvel movie ETERNALS starring Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek. Plus with more music in the pipeline, cutting-edge collaborations, and a headline UK performance already pencilled in for 2022, it’s clear that Celina Sharma’s rise to the top has only just begun.
