An uplifting bop about how people need to take time out to reset and build energy, 'Just For One Day' is just what we need given the status of the world right now!"
The music video and the song create and uplifting and aesthetic atmosphere which is so calming to watch.
Continuing to build creatively and artistically through her own label Music Core, British singer-songwriter Kelli-Leigh has announced the music video for her brand new single ‘Just For One Day’ - out April 22. Encapsulating the essence of a truly DIY artist, the accompanying visuals were shot by Kelli-Leigh's film student sister Sarah-Louise Davila and edited by Kelli-Leigh herself. Having gelled over playing their favourite tunes and their sonic vision for artistry, 'Just For One Day' was written by Kelli-Leigh and talented upcoming producer, Hoost, in their first writing session together. “I told him that I wanted to write something that explains how sometimes you just need to take some time out, reset yourself to build your energy, and not speak to anyone.” Explains Kelli-Leigh, “Little did I know when it came to the release, the world would also be self isolating. Now when I watch the video back, it feels slightly post-apocalyptic.” “I was feeling overwhelmed and low from a run of sessions, and felt that I had been neglecting my own artist creativity and focus. The morning of the session I had gone to the completely wrong studio in the wrong part of London and made myself 2 hours late. I’m a bit of a workaholic and sometimes I tend to go too far, so ultimately I could’ve quit and gone home, but I ended up writing this song in an easy flow, a stream of consciousness which just came to me and explained how I was feeling.” Few emerging artists know the music industry better than Kelli-Leigh. Her astonishing career spans a total of 8 years and includes over 500 million streams on Spotify, 2 UK numbers 1s and 3 UK Top 10 hits. Her unmistakable vocals feature on the club anthems, ‘More Than Friends’ (James Hype), ‘I Wanna Feel’ (Second City) and the Billboard dance chart and GRAMMY nominated number 1 ‘I Got U’ (Duke Dumont & Jax Jones). But it’s her work as a solo artist that Kelli-Leigh is being recognised and celebrated for now, garnering a loyal fanbase and huge support from Kiss FM, Radio 1, Virgin Radio DXB, Sirius XM & Gaydio. Since setting up her own, fully self-funded label ‘Music Core’ in 2018, the trailblazing hitmaker has released five independent singles including latest release ‘Cotton Clouds’, which was added to Apple Music’s ‘Breaking Pop’ and ‘Pop Deluxe’ playlists as well as Spotify’s ‘New Pop UK’ and Shazam’s ‘Best New Music’. Other singles include emotive and anthemic pop classics ‘Do You Want To Be Loved Like This?’, ‘Can’t Dance’, ‘Nothing More’ and ‘Without You’, which featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday and have amassed over 2 million combined streams. As a solo artist, and one with a huge LGBTQ+ following, she’s performed at Brighton, Manchester and Birmingham Pride, the Boardmaster Festival, supported Fifth Harmony and played at Dubai’s huge Redfest festival. 2020 is set to be Kelli-Leigh’s biggest year yet.
