Wellingta is a rising R&B and dancehall singer/songwriter hailing from London. Originally from Berlin, Germany, her soulful cadences, tropical R&B leanings and multicultural perspective make her an exciting emerging artist, as she continues to thrive exponentially across her repertoire.
Brazilian in origin, her name Wellingta means “From the rich man’s farm”. Growing up in a musical family, she started to sing and dance at just five years old, honing down her unique talents and shaping the sound of her future. Growing up on the harmonies of Hip Hop, R&B, Reggae, Dancehall and AfroBeats, her musical influences span wide. With the grooves of Michael & Janet Jackson, Aaliyah and Beyoncé at her fingertips, Wellingta fuses the nostalgia of the 90’s with the sass of the early noughties, to create a sound that reverberates with euphony. She confides, “I’m very inspired by music from that era and wanted my new song to bring the 90‘s feel & vibe back.”
Working alongside producer PRGRSHN (Burna Boy, Stormzy, GoldLink, Anne- Marie), who also produced Stormzy's new hit single "Hide & Seek", Wellingta combines her decade descendant influences with her own unique sound. Taking to the studio in West London, Wellingta’s new single “No Goodbyes” came to life. In an ode to the inspiration felt from everyday experiences, whether it be conversations, daydreams or observations, her true passion for authenticity shines brightly. She explains, “This time I went to the studio and told my producer that I really want to do a song for God. I had just finished listening to Mary Mary‘s song “Walking” and thought WOW that’s it! I wanna do a dope, danceable song like this for God.”
Progressive rhythms and grooving choruses envelop into the perfect backing for Wellingta’s melodious vocal energy. 'No Goodbyes' soars with irresistible vibes and pure tranquility to create a truly exceptional single. She continues, “It all happened very fast. My song 'No Goodbyes' is my love letter to God.” It’s her hope that listeners will feel a concoction of hope, joy and love. Uplifting her audiences and transcending musical barriers, Wellingta doesn’t just create music that you can dance to, but music that you can feel.
Garnering a global audience across her catalogue to date, Wellingta continues to soar in success. Attracting humbling praise from the likes of Flaunt, KAZI Magazine, and Celebmix, she consolidates her status as an exceptional emerging artist. Appearing on billboards in Times Square, several Spotify editorial playlists, and radio stations across the globe, there’s no doubt that she’ll continue to thrive for the rest of 2022 and beyond.
