International recording artiste CeCile is eagerly anticipating her trip to Dubai on December 1st where she's slated to perform at the Majestic Hotel's Music Room.
In a release to the media she said, “I am excited about going, it’s always a great experience to visit different cultures to see how the music is penetrating those markets, and I am definitely looking forward to the trip,”
An avid recording artiste known for her distinct style and vocabulary, Cecile has barely missed a beat since becoming pregnant and having her baby girl on August 27th. Now that she has returned to music full time, the dividends are already paying off.
It's understood that the singer turn mom worked throughout her pregnancy (up to 7 months) so not many realized she was actually pregnant. CeCile, a homegrown star from Manchester, landed two major international collaborations this year, both of which were released during her pregnancy. One was the sexed-up party song 'Boys Boys' with Brazilian Group Bonde Do Role produced by Mad Decent and Diplo.
“Diplo sent me the track, and it was just a blank track and he asked to lay down some vocals about boys, the band vocals were not even there yet, and the song just took off,” she said.
The other was the offbeat and funky ‘Galaxies and Stars’ with Doctor P wowed Europe as another massive dub step banger in the vein of her radio hit Gold Dust which, coincidentally, is now back on BBC's 1xtra A playlist.
“Dubstep is big in the UK, and the ‘Galaxies and Stars’ did well, but it is the Gold Dust song which has really taken off, it was even played at the NBA All Star game earlier this year,” she said.
Cecile was unable to appear in the videos for the international collaborations as she was pregnant at the time of the shoots. She performed in St. Maarten on November 17th for the annual Boardwalk Festival along with Steel Pulse and returned to fan favourite Guadeloupe on November 24th.
