After linking up with Rico Nasty for ‘Jealous’ earlier this year, Mahalia is back with brand new bop ‘Whenever You’re Ready’.

Produced by Two Inch Punch and co-written with MNEK, Mahalia says, “I’m so gassed to be releasing this song. I remember the first time hearing Montell Jordan’s ‘Get it on tonight’ in ‘Save the last dance’ when I was a kid. It’s been a song that has made me wanna dance ever since and sampling it in ‘Whenever you’re ready’ is really special to me. I had so much fun writing it with MNEK and Two Inch Punch. I was going through a breakup at the time and really wanted to capture this part of that process. It’s my new summer jam. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!”

“I’ve known Mahalia for years,” MNEK adds. “I resonate with her as someone who also started in this industry in my early teens and had to navigate and essentially develop professionally and personally at the same time in that way. There always has been something so special about what Mahalia brings to music & I’m glad the world is seeing it. Her pen, her voice, her vulnerability, her vibe - I love her and this song a lot.”
