In case you weren't already aware, we at Digital Spy are quite the fans of Misha B's latest single 'Do You Think Of Me', as evidenced in this review.
With the single flying up the charts and on course for a place inside the top ten, we called up the star to find out more about her debut album, her upcoming BBC 1Xtra show and whether that elusive Missy Elliot collaboration is still on the cards.
Hello Misha! How's your week going?
"Very well, thanks! I was at the MOBOs at the weekend and my new single came out on Sunday, so it's been a bit of a whirlwind."
The single is already top ten on iTunes, which is amazing.
"I'm so thrilled, we just have to keep pushing and pushing! The support for this song has been quite special."
Were you worried about how the song would perform?
"I had no idea if people would like this song or not, so I was worried in that sense. It just goes to show that good music speaks for itself!"
It's a very personal track; have you managed to avoid choking up when performing it?
"There was one time when we did it on just an acoustic guitar and that's when the song's message really hit home. I thought, 'Please don't cry Misha!' It's definitely one of the most vocally challenging songs I've put together, so there's no room for tears when I'm doing this one."
You're booked to play one of Radio 1Xtra's gigs later this month; are you excited about it?
"I'm so excited for this one - I can't wait! They've been big supporters of me. Even though I'm from Manchester, 1Xtra was one of those stations that I was always locked into and I still listen to it all the time to find out what new music is coming next. Their support from the get-go has been really great for me."
How important is radio support to a song's success?
"Radio is such a key part to it. A lot of new songs I hear for the first time are on radio, or songs grow on me as a result of hearing them on the radio over and over. To get support from a variety of stations is brilliant because I know how hard it can be. Hopefully more will get on board; I think it will happen in the future as the music grows."
How is your album coming along?
"I've not actually sat down and picked what songs are going on the album so I'm not exactly sure how it's going to sound yet! Of the songs I've created so far, I'm very excited to share it. It's an exciting process and I feel like I've learnt so many things about myself and music in general."
When is it coming out?
"It should be out in early March. They'll be one more single early next year before we release it."
Is there a song that's definitely making the record that you're excited about?
"There's one called 'Runaway' which is my favourite so far. It's very high-energy and it's all about strutting your stuff and living life to the fullest, like you're on a model runway."
'Home Run' is a mish-mash of sounds and 'Do You Think Of Me' is very anthemic. Is that representative of the album?
"What we've put out so far is definitely a good indication, but there is so much more to come. It's a very energetic record, but there are a few moodier and chilled songs, but on the whole it's very high on life."
There are some big ballads on there as well, right?
"There will definitely be one or two! I love it when it's just me and the music. Sometimes less is more."
People keep asking you about when you're collaborating with Missy Elliot. Has that put too much pressure on it happening?
"I don't think so. I love the support around us wanting to work together and for people to believe that it will be special. For me, it will definitely happen, there's just no timespan on when. It's coming."
Who have you been in the studio with recently?
"I've been working with Mr Hudson as a producer and a singer, also TMS, Naughty Boy, MNEK. I've got quite a few more sessions yet. I'm finishing the album off in Los Angeles soon."
Are you a fan of Rylan on this year's X Factor?
"I thought his performance on the sing-off with Kye was incredible. It was very special."
You've been in those sing-off situations before. Should it be based purely on that performance or everything building up to it as well?
"I think it has to be everything, because some people can be great in the sing-off but not deliver overall."
"I really think he is exciting! He may not be the strongest vocally, but for me so far he's not failed. In terms of putting on a performance and entertaining, he's up there."
Misha B will be performing at 1Xtra Live in Manchester on Tuesday, November 13. Listen live on Radio 1Xtra & Radio 1 from 7pm. Watch live at bbc.co.uk/1xtra.
