Show-stopping vocalist and hitmaking songwriter Becky Hill releases ‘Better Off Without You’ ft. Shift K3y ahead of her upcoming Spring Headline UK tour, which sold out within hours of going on sale and kicks off on 26th March in Newcastle (full dates and details listed below).
After an incredible 2019, Becky Hill is now the 2nd most listened to British female artist on Spotify in the UK having notched up over a billion streams and 17 million Spotify monthly listeners. Her brand new single ‘Better Off Without You’ – written by Becky and produced by Mark Ralph – is the follow up to her certified silver Summer hit ‘I Could Get Used To This’ with Weiss and is accompanied by a music video directed by Michael Holyk and shot in East London.
“’Better Off Without You’ is that perfect break up song. Starting the year with those New Year, new me feels, it’s your new self love anthem of 2020! Written about a break up of my own, ’Better Off Without You’ was a song that I listened to over the course of 2019 that helped me through some really dark times. I can’t wait to share this bit of personal therapy with others and watch the song take on a life of its own.” – Becky Hill
Over and above the release of ‘I Could Get Used to This’, the past year alone has seen Becky release her ‘Get To Know’ project (which peaked at no.13 in the UK Official streaming Chart and has not left the Top 20 since), co-write and collaborate on hit singles with Sigala (‘Wish You Well’ which debuted in the Top 10 of the UK official charts) and Meduza x Goodboys (‘Lose Control’ which is still in the Global Spotify Top 10), write the Top 10 smash ‘All Day and Night’ by Europa and featuring Madison Beer, and complete a sold out headline UK tour.
One of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports of the moment who’s renowned for her irrefutable aptitude for writing chart smashing pop songs and her firmly ensconced electronic music roots, Becky Hill has an impressive string of hits to her name. She has written and performed on seven singles which charted in the top 40 of the UK official singles chart, including the million selling number 1, ‘Gecko (Overdrive)’ with Oliver Heldens, gold certified UK Top 10 single ‘Afterglow’ with Wilkinson and club anthem ‘Back & Forth’ with MK and Jonas Blue. She has collaborated with the likes of Rudimental, Matoma, Lil Simz and more. And her songwriting skills have been enlisted by artists ranging from MK, Tiesto, Jax Jones and Martin Solveig through to MNEK and Little Mix, (which is no mean feat considering only 17% of PRS for Music’s registered songwriters are female).
Radio 1’s Greg James may have described Becky Hill as “One of the most underrated popstars and vocalists in the world”, but with a slew of solo stellar singles and her debut album set for release in 2020, this is sure to change.
