Recorded for the BRITs 2021 Rising Star Session!

After is was announced that she was on the shortlist for this year’s BRITs Rising Star award, Rina Sawayama has performed ‘XS’ at Abbey Road for the Rising Star Session!

“I literally fell to the floor when I found out that I’d been nominated for Rising Star,” Rina says of her shortlist spot. “I really can’t put into words how much this means to me given that I wasn’t eligible for this award a few weeks ago and now that door has been opened for future generations of artists like myself. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me, it means the world.”

‘XS’ features on her fab debut album ‘SAWAYAMA’ that was released in April last year, and you can revisit our cover interview with Rina all about it now!
