Singer-songwriter Paris Paloma has released a stirring live rendition of her Billboard-charting, fiery feminist anthem “labour”. Watch the session, filmed at London’s legendary RAK Studios and complete with haunting strings and backup vocals by all-female choir London Contemporary Voices, HERE.
Last month, “labour” ignited a wildfire of praise, catapulting Paris onto the Official Singles Chart at #29 and seeing its Billboard chart debuts, including #13 Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, #13 Digital Song Sales, #12 Emerging Artists and #17 Bubbling Under Hot 100. The song garnered over 1.5 million streams in its first 24 hours of release, and reached 1 Million YouTube views within a few days of release. Paris was also selected by YouTube to be their featured Trending Artist on the Rise and was most recently named Billboard’s May 2023 Chartbreaker.
“labour” first started gaining momentum on TikTok due to fans’ rapturous responses to the song’s lyrics and powerful message behind the track, garnering millions of views, uses and shares. “‘labour’ takes us inside a relationship where the speaker’s self-worth is once again reduced, like many people who find themselves in draining relationships with undeserving people. Taking on all the emotional labour. But it is a breaking point… it is the first time the speaker acknowledges the toxicity of these dynamics, and the song is about the escape from that relationship,” Paris says.
Paris will be performing two sold out London headline shows on 28th and 30th May at The Camden Assembly and she will also be playing at the iconic festivals Bonnaroo and Summerfest alongside a headline show at The Sultan Room in Brooklyn on June 20th.
