Kamille, GRAMMY and BRIT award-winning singer-songwriter and producer talks to us about her new music and becoming a mother. 

With 34 platinum-selling singles and 6 UK number-one hits, she is one of the most successful women in the music industry. Kamille has written hits for several artists in the industry, including Little Mix, Stormzy, Dua Lipa, and Flo. In addition, she has a distinctive sound and style.

Kamille, we would like to thank you for taking the time to speak to us. Can you tell us how your day has been? 

My day has been amazing! I’ve been doing incredible interviews, talking to amazing people about my new album and I’ve been wrapping up songs that are on the album, just making sure that I’ve got everything done so it’s all been very exciting for me.

 

We would like to congratulate you on becoming a mother. Can you tell us what that experience has been like so far?

It’s been life-changing, there’s nothing like becoming a parent and everyone always says it but it’s not until you start to experience it that you understand. It’s the most incredible feeling knowing there’s someone on this earth that I have made, and my son is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Apart from obviously my husband, and my family and music and everything *laughs*.

 

You recently released a song titled 'Time to Kill what is the song about? 

Time To Kill is a very sexy song about wanting to make sure you and your bae are slowing it down for that special moment because sometimes we like to rush through stuff. It doesn’t only apply to sexy moments, but just life in general, There’s no rush, we’ve got time to kill so let’s just enjoy this moment together. It’s about feeling good, feeling good with your boo, and all the good vibes.

 

 

As you're about to release your debut album, can you give us a sneak peek at what to expect from it? 

I think you can expect a lot of happiness and joy, You can definitely sense the era that I’m in like empowerment and freedom, and I’m just feeling myself and living my life. I’ve gone independent now and I think that freedom physically actually shows through the music, so I just want to empower people and make them feel good about themselves. You can expect a lot of nostalgia, a lot of throwback moments, and music that I loved growing up – it’s all running through the whole album, so I’m excited about that.

 

You collaborated with the legend Nile Rodgers on your single 'Muscle Memory'. What was it like working with him and what was the inspiration behind the record?

It was incredible working with Nile Rodgers, he’s a legend and a complete icon when it comes to music and the fact that he even agreed to feature on my record that I produced on my own is just… to be honest I’m still blown away by it a bit! I think working with him at Abbey Road on a song that I produced and seeing him play the guitar and talk to me about the song is a moment I’ll never forget. He is one of the loveliest people I have ever met and was so sweet and encouraging so I will never forget those moments and I’m so glad that music was the thing that was able to bring me and Nile together on the record.

 

You are an incredible songwriter and have worked with girl group Little Mix. Can you tell us what that experience was like?

They just have my heart; they are my girls always. Even just thinking about them I smile because they’re just the best and I loved that time for them. We spent so much time together, we almost became sisters and we all grew together as people. We made so many songs together – I think I wrote about 35 songs for them. We had many Top 10s, Number 1s, and BRIT Awards to name a few, and it was just an amazing time in my life to be trusted with their career.
