British singer Mahalia has released her new single for the track Wish I Missed My Ex. The singer has also announced a debut US tour and a 10 date UK tour with a headlining performance at London’s Brixton Electric, making this her biggest tour to date.
The track was produced by Maths Times Joy, who mixed Mahalia’s debut single Sober (which has since amassed 20 million streams), and emerging producer Swindle.
The video was shot in LA by Andrew Litten who stated: “The first time I heard IWIMME, I knew the track needed a big idea. I’ve always loved Spike Jonze’s video for “Drop” by the Pharcyde and decided to pay homage by creating a backwards music video with a contemporary spin. I hired a linguist from UCLA to teach Mahalia the song backwards which she surprisingly learned in a day. The DP, Dustin Lane, and I have always wanted to make something in our neighborhood, Highland Park. We chose family owned locations and hired a few extras while scouting the neighborhood. Mahalia’s reversed performance oozes spontaneity and confidence.
“I can’t thank her enough for joining us on the journey, and signing on to recreate this insane concept.”
