Britain's latest R&B trailblazer Chel serves up sultry smoothness in her latest flirtatious track, ‘Papaya’.

Penning equally cosy and racy lyrics, Chel’s latest single ‘Papaya’, narrates those giddy first moments when you realise you have a crush. Bottling up this energy, Chel unleashes it throughout the track’s atmospheric soundscape, adding a percussive bounce and a flurry of reversed piano chords that are sure to get you swaying.


Fresh off the heels of her recently acclaimed singles ‘Sweet Spot’ – a track filled with lustful motifs and warm basslines – and ‘Still Working’ – an ode to her angelic harmonies – Chel has only been rising through R&B’s ranks. Releasing multiple EPs and a slew of singles, the burgeoning singer-songwriter has seen her artistry lead to working with C Cane and Joey K, all whilst pushing her artistry like never before.


Furthering her sultry sound, ‘Papaya’ sees Chel’s affinity for vibrant instrumentation take centre stage. Set against a backdrop of zesty percussion, Chel delivers a confident performance with her sunken vocals sweeping the soundscape deftly. Layered with angelic harmonies, the track sees the R&B artist create an arresting atmosphere that leaves listeners hanging on for more.


On the new track, Chel shares: ”I want to have fun in music and the song really reflects my energy when I’m into someone, I wanted that feeling of excitement and heightened interest bottled up in a song!”
