Talented South African singer/songwriter Elaine is coming back with a bang. The songstress teased her new record through social media and her fans just went crazy.
After teasing her forthcoming record, she’s been at the top of the trending list. Her fans have concluded that she’s with Toronto superstar Drake on the song, although Elaine said nothing about Drizzy featuring on the track. We’ll have to wait for the song to drop to see if the rumours are true.
After signing to Colombia Records in August of 2020, the singer has been spending a lot of time abroad. She's label mates with some of the biggest artists in the world, including Beyonce, Adele, John Legend, Solange and many others. Colombia records announced its social media channels.
Minister of Arts and Culter Nathi Mthethwa congratulated the rising star on her big achievement.
"We're proud to hear the news that South African R&B sensation Elaine has signed with Columbia Records, joining global icons such as Beyoncé & Adele. Her hit song "You're the one" has over 2,7 million views on YouTube. We're incredibly proud of your achievements," he tweeted.
Some reports also suggest that controversial South African record label, Ambitiouz Entertainment were interested in signing the talented singer. Many fans were happy Elaine didn't sign with them as they've been known to exploit their artists.
The singer gained popularity in 2019 after the release of her multi-platinum single, You're The One. It was taken off her platinum-selling debut EP Elements which was also certified platinum. She released the record independently.
