Babé Sila / Olivia Burdyk

She’s been hailed as the Hungarian Queen of R&B in her native country, but Babé Sila‘s raw talent is clearly felt no matter which nation you’re listening in. The artist, who divides her time between Berlin and London, blends murky, explorative beats with her strikingly pure voice. Take a listen for yourself below with the premiere of her new single “Maire.”

Speaking on the track, Babé Sila told Highsnobiety that “’Maire’ is a manifestation of a period when I started to open up my world and be very adventurous with my sensuality and feel confident in my desires. It’s a cheeky, playful R&B tune that has a lot of teasing, secrets and repressed wishes, fantasies, feelings involved. I wrote the song with
three crazy talented Berlin based musicians/producers, Jennifer Allendoerfer, D.Y.A. and KASPERG.”

For more of our premieres, take a listen to Lafawndah’s lead single from her upcoming debut album ‘ANCESTOR BOY.’
