Mahalia's "Proud Of Me" is an uplifting moment of recognition for all the people who have got your back. "Mother and father I want to make you proud," the nineteen-year-old sings over a delicate and soulful beat. The video, premiering above, sees Mahalia head back to the city of Leicester in England where she hangs with friends in a skate park, enjoying her freedom. The action then skips to the studio where guest Little Simz lays down her verse.
Speaking to The FADER via email, Mahalia said of the video: “I'm so excited for everyone to see this one. It's extra special to me. We filmed it in Leicester with a couple close friends of mine and it's sick that everyone gets to see me in my home. There's a couple special guests, too. Keep your eyes peeled!"
