Following the release of ‘So Dumb’ and ‘Back To The Start’ to critical acclaim and rave reviews from Clash Music, RWD Magazine, SingersRoom and Link Up TV among other tastemakers, in the past few weeks, the anticipation continues to build for Essex singer-songwriter Beverley Ely’s sophomore EP Second Chance At A First Impression which is to be released on November 12th.
Today, Beverley Ely is excited to reveal the third single from her Second Chance At A First Impression EP, titled ‘Me First’. Produced by Mikey SOS (Emeli Sandé, Wretch 32, Ariana Grande), and written by Ely, her sister Veronica Ely and J Warner, who has written for the likes of Tinie Tempah, JLS and Sasha Keable, ‘Me First’ is a soulful and poignant anthem about putting yourself first.
Collaborating with video director Frost (Ghetts, Wretch 32, Stormzy), Beverley Ely has also delivered a simple yet emotive music video to capture the very essence of ‘Me First’. Starring Ely alongside a group of strong women like herself, the ‘Me First’ visuals advocate for Ely’s listeners, especially her female audiences, to strive to be happy and comfortable in their own skin, and start loving themselves.
Speaking about loving yourself, Ely says of ‘Me First’, “I wrote it because I had to start loving myself. I wanted to be loved so bad, that I would just give my love to anyone, hoping to be loved back, and I was making the same mistake over and over again and not learning from it. Writing ‘Me First’ was the first time I really reflected on what I had been doing, and I realized that I had to start putting me first”.
