Selah Sue’s first Album is out in the US!
SELAH SUE, SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM AVAILABLE AUGUST 21 ON COLUMBIA RECORDS
Internationally-acclaimed, Belgium-born recording artist Selah Sue has released her self-titled debut albumyesterday, August 21 on Columbia Records. The album introduces the U.S. to Selah Sue’s unique style – a distinctive blend of pop, soul, funk and reggae.
Selah Sue’s self-titled album debuted in the top 10 charts in Belgium, France and the Netherlands and, to date, the success of those releases has garnered her multiple platinum certifications. The U.S. version of the album includes three exclusive, never-before-heard songs: “On the Run,” “Break,” and “Fade Away.” Selah Sue features rap superstar J.Cole on a remix of “Raggamuffin” as well as Cee-Lo Green on the duet “Please.” Selah Sue also partnered with producer Jerry Wonda, longtime collaborator of Wyclef Jean and producer of Fugees’ classic The Score, on “Fade Away” and co-wrote the emotional ballad “Mommy” with Meshell Ndegeocello.
Selah Sue began writing music in high school and, by the age of 22, found herself in recording sessions with hip-hop artist Nneka. Her first full-length album was completed in 2010. Praised by Elle (Belgium) as having an “impertinent sense of rhythm…refreshing frankness and a visceral passion for music,” Selah’s musical talents were acknowledged by Prince, who offered Selah a coveted support slot at his shows in Antwerp, Belgium. Selah has already taken home the prestigious French Mercury Prize and the public choice award at the 2012 European Border Breakers Awards, and now looks forward to bringing her inimitable music style to the United States.
