Ones to watch: Emilia Mitiku

By
Emilia Mituku


You'll have almost certainly forgotten her name, but it only takes a gentle nudging of the brain to remember Emilia's 1998 global smash 'Big Big World'.



Now that you remember it, forget it, because Emilia has returned 14 years later with a surname (Mitiku) and a completely different sound.

That sound is a smoky, jazzy and bluesy one which you can hear on her impressive cover of Rihanna's 'We Found Love' below:



Comparing the music business between then and now, she says: "Today there is so much music about that, if you're going to ask for people's time, you have to be honest.

"I learnt that there are no easy ways up, but also that it's not important to be everybody's darling. At 19, possibly. But not now - I don't need to be that person anymore."

Emilia releases her new single 'Lost Inside' on June 25, and it's a sort of easy listening-meets-country affair. Her album I Belong To You follows later this summer.
