IRL (initialism for In Real Life) is the second studio album by British singer-songwriter Mahalia. The album was released on 14 July 2023 through Warner Music.[2] The album was inspired by the singer's "traumatic breakup" and her visits to "therapy".[3] In support of the album, Mahalia embarked on a tour of the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and Australia, commencing in October 2023 in Leeds[4] and concluding in Brisbane, Australia on 8 May 2024.[5][6]

IRL received a score of 80 out of 100 on review aggregator Metacritic based on six critics' reviews, indicating "generally favorable" reception.[8] Aggregator AnyDecentMusic? gave it 7.2 out of 10, based on their assessment of the critical consensus. Elle Barton of DIY called the album a "delight", writing that it strikes "a perfect balance between familiarity and unpredictability, immediate choruses coexisting with a relaxed, breezy sound".[9] NME's Erica Campbell described the album as "bold, vulnerable, classic R&B", with IRL "reflect[ing] a young woman fully becoming herself, not just confidently throwing her hands up but boldly letting her guard down too".[1]

Red Dziri of The Line of Best Fit wrote that "Mahalia is not casting as wide a net as she did in her career-defining debut" and "if IRL is not as consistent as her previous output, this new album still cements Mahalia as a major R&B/Soul fixture both nationally and abroad".[10] Lucy Fitzgerald, reviewing the album for The Skinny, found it to be "satiny and consistent, [but] sonically and lyrically you're eager for some bigger swings. [...] IRL is like a path reflecting dappled sunlight: we can see patches of brightness but its full light is obscured".[11]

Mahalia auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Mahalia Rose Burkmar (* 1. Mai 1998 in Leicester) ist eine englische R&B-Sängerin und Songwriterin aus Syston in Leicestershire. 2019 hatte sie ihren Durchbruch mit dem Album Love and Compromise.

Biografie

Die Eltern von Mahalia waren bereits in den 1980er Jahren im Popgeschäft aktiv, ihre Mutter gehörte zum Umfeld von Colourbox, ihr Vater war Tourmusiker bei Erasure. In ihrer Kindheit spielte sie Gitarre und schrieb bereits ihre eigenen Lieder. Mit 13 Jahren nahm sie ihre erste EP auf und bekam so die Aufmerksamkeit der großen Musiklabel. 2015 war sie Mitautorin und Gastsängerin beim Titelsong des Nummer-1-Albums We the Generation von Rudimental. Im selben Jahr erschien ihre erste Label-EP Never Change bei Asylum Records.

2016 hatte sie einen Auftritt im britischen Gang-Film Brotherhood und veröffentlichte ihr Debütalbum Diary of Me noch ohne besonderen Erfolg. Außerdem erschienen von ihr in diesem und dem folgenden Jahr zahlreiche Singles. Mit der EP Seasons und den Songs Do Not Disturb und zusammen mit Little Simz Proud of Me fand sie 2018 positive Reaktionen in der Musikpresse und wurde zum Jahreswechsel in die Nominiertenlisten der einschlägigen Newcomer-Awards (Critics’ Choice, Sound of 2019) aufgenommen. Im August 2019 gelang ihr schließlich der Durchbruch mit der Single Simmer mit Beteiligung von Burna Boy, mit der sie erstmals in die britischen Charts kam. Ihr Album Love and Compromise erreichte im Monat darauf Platz 28 in Großbritannien. Über ihre Heimat hinaus erfolgreich war gegen Jahresende die Single What You Did mit Ella Mai, die sich unter anderem auch in der R&B-Auswertung der Charts in den USA platzieren konnte.[3]

2020 wurde ihre Zusammenarbeit mit Jacob Collier bei dessen Song All I Need in der Kategorie Beste R&B-Darbietung für einen Grammy Award nominiert.
