South-East London vocalist Essy Maliya has arrived with a smooth R&B track “Same Way”, making her official debut. With a strong vocal performance accompanied by mesmerising harmonies, this new single showcases Maliya’s talents as a leading artist.

Influenced by artists such as Summer Walker and Aaliyah, Maliya takes pride in being a triple threat through her artistry, lyricism and instrumental ability. The new track is produced by Rich Music and gives a harmonious backdrop to Essy’s strong vocals.

Essy said of the track: “I believe music is healing, music is everywhere. There is nothing more comforting when you’re going through a tough situation, putting on earphones and relating to someone else’s world, realising that you are not alone. I want to be able to give that to others and use my gift in music to help others how it has helped me”. 

Describing her most creatively intimate and vulnerable moments as those spent sitting in her room with her guitar, surrounded by calming mood lights whilst writing lyrics about her life, love and the challenges she has navigated through her early 20’s, Essy Maliya’s music effortlessly reflects the anticipated birth of a fresh and exciting artist within UK R&B.
