Welcome to the feature where we talk to musicians and artists to find out in depth information about their brand new singles and music. Today we speak to Wellingta an R&B and dancehall singer/songwriter from London who has returned with a brand new track No Goodbyes
Hello Wellingta tell us three unknown facts about yourself?
I love cooking, I have a candle collection called IMPRSVBYWELLINGTA and I speak 5 languages.
How did you get into music?
I started singing and dancing at 5 years old and went to a show called The Mini Playback Show a year after. That’s when everything started.
Who do you find your inspirations?
My inspiration for songs usually comes from my everyday experiences – conversations, daydreams, observations etc.
Tell us all about your latest single No Goodbyes?
I went to the studio and told my producer that I really wanted to do a song for God. I had just finished listening to Mary Mary‘s song Walking and thought WOW that’s it! I wanna do a dope, danceable song like this for God. We listened to some 90’s hits, started working on the beat and wrote the song. My song „No Goodbyes“ is my love letter to God.
How long did it take to write the song?
We wrote the song pretty fast, I would say around 15-20 mins.
Where does the inspiration for the song come from?
Tell us a little bit about recording this track in the studio – what were the highlights and challenges?
One of the highlights were how fast we created the lyrics and were ready with the song. It was all a smooth process and we really didn’t have any challenges.

No goodbye’s, you’re always there

To catch the vibe

What is one of your favourite songs to perform live?
I cannot wait to perform No Goodbyes live
What is the toughest songs to perform live and why?

Putting more music out and and touching people with my songs.
