Born in Rhode Island and based in Los Angeles, EMELINE is an emerging artist with a boldly original songwriting voice. Her magnetic new single, “this is how i learn to say no” is a strong-minded and cathartic pop song about the power in setting boundaries and speaking your truth. EMELINE’s tremendous vocal range is in full force on “this is how i learn to say no.” With its woozy guitar tones and darkly charged beats, the track also showcases the 22-year-old singer/songwriter’s immense talent as a lyricist, striking a stunning balance between raw vulnerability and unapologetic self-possession. A multi-instrumentalist who plays guitar and piano, EMELINE first broke through with the premiere of “flowers & sex” — a June 2021 release that amassed over 10 million global streams in just eight weeks, in addition to hitting #4 on Spotify’s U.S. Viral 50 chart, landing on nearly 30 Spotify editorial playlists, and surpassing 18 million views on TikTok. The fiercely honest track earned critical praise from outlets like Paper (who noted that the “blunt pop anthem…arrives at a time when people are craving a little self-love and a lot of sexual pleasure after a year of endless isolation”) and Earmilk (who hailed the song as “seductive, confident and perfect in synergy” while praising EMELINE as “transformative”). She has entranced audiences since taking the stage at the first-ever Boston Women’s March, where the then-17-year-old debuted her single “Hush” to a crowd of 175,000. EMELINE is currently at work on new music and continuing with her mission of creating uncompromising pop that supports and uplifts women everywhere.
