Betta Lemme is one of the hottest new artists right now. She just signed to Ultra music and she sings her songs in French, Italian, and English which is just insane. Her music is a whole new breed of dance music and her Bambola EP is absolutely stunning.
How did you get started in music?
B: I began dreaming of writing for other artists after being rejected from music school. At that time, I thought that it would only be a reality in my dreams. I made the real jump to turn my dream into a reality when I decided to move to NYC alone to find people to create with.
What can we expect with your Bambola EP?
B: You will feel the waves one goes through after a breakup when listening to the Bambola EP... except with a little more glitter.
You have a true international presence, why do you think your music resonates with so many people?
B: I think the subject matter of my songs are universal and relatable. However, I think incorporating the three different languages I know is what brings people together, which is my favorite. I love being able to promote unity in that way.
What has been one of the biggest challenges for you in your career?
B: At times, it can be difficult to find creative partners who understand and feel as excited about my musical influences as I do. I love 90's dance, Abba and techno, but also want to create classical compositions. My biggest challenge can be just believing that I can. I suppose the most serious challenge is making sure that listeners are aware of how involved I am in the creative process and that I'm not just someone hopping on a dance track. These compositions and videos are just a page from my diary. Apart from that, I've been fortunate thus far.
You just signed with Ultra Music! How does it feel to be a part of their roster?
B: I think it will be an exciting and interesting partnership. My music is both pop and dance. I quite like the minds behind the Ultra team and am looking forward to seeing what we can build together.
What’s your best piece of advice for young women?
B: My best piece of advice for young women would be to not let anyone try to tell you who you are. Never feel guilty for speaking your mind and if there's something you want or believe in, fight for it.
