Last year Elaine became the most streamed female artist in the country and was also announced as one of Apple Music’s “Visionary Women” Campaign at just 21-years-old.
Her hit song You’re The One has opened big doors for her, making her a formidable force in the music industry. The song was at the beginning of 2021, certified seven times platinum after selling more than 200 000 units.
Elaine recently shared a teaser of her four-minute film, The Shining Star: The Intro which gave many of her fans a peek into her journey and her passion for music. She also announced an upcoming release of her album under US record label Columbia Records.
In the film, we get a glimpse of her vulnerable side and never seen before footage of her younger self. The film has a special message for his fans who are going through changes.
“There’s a special power that comes with being undermined and overlooked all the time, you realize how much you have to root for yourself in all instances of life. Especially the lows, that’s when your breakthrough comes alive, when no one is watching or cares to pay attention. It’s just you, your dreams and your demons.”
