(April 30, 2020, Los Angeles, CA) Today, 19-year-old UK singer/songwriter Mimi Webb shares the music video for her new single “Before I Go.”
Watch it HERE.
The surreal clip begins with the buzzing songstress picking petals from wilting white roses on a kitchen table. Wearing a varsity letter jacket, she hops in a classic convertible and cruises through a surreal countryside. The road passes various couples in different states of youthful romance—lighting the fire for a kite, watching television on a crate in front of a mountain range, or sharing an ice cream cone. Meanwhile, lush piano and cinematic strings entwine with her soulful delivery as she urges, “Hold me close.” The vocals take flight, and she immediately makes an impact.
Speaking of her impact…
Tik Tok superstar Charli D’Amelio incorporated “Before I Go” in a video over the weekend. As it reached the famous creator’s 51.5 million followers, it generated over 15 million views, 3.2 million “likes,” 68.1K comments, and 13K shares in the app. Additionally 12k plus user-generated videos with the song followed. Taking to Twitter, D’Amelio enthusiastically proclaimed it “my favorite song”. Mimi’s Instagram has exploded, attracting 3,000 followers in just two days.
Right out of the gate, “Before I Go” received glowing critical endorsements. Consequence of Sound wrote, “19-year-old British singer Mimi Webb has an unassuming sense of style and a voice that hits like a belt of brandy” and added, “She’s got enough bite to roar over rock guitars, the technical chops to sell a ballad, and the velvety grace to acquit herself in Bieber-esque R&B.”
Right now, she’s preparing her debut EP for release soon.
With her show-stopping voice, soulful spirit, and poetic lyricism, she has all the makings of a breakthrough star. Get ready for more from Mimi Webb soon!
