Antwerp-based singer with Congolese roots Coely Mbueno has already lovingly been called Belgium’s Baddest Bitch. Aged twenty-five and singing in English (Lauryn Hill is a major inspiration), Coely also has two MIAs (the Flemish version of the Edisons) to her name. This Belgian queen of hip-hop is equally at home in soul, r&b, gospel or incendiary raps over super-tight beats. With her inimitable, powerful voice, self-assured lyrics (about turning vulnerability to strength as an outsider) and an incredible dose of energy, she makes infectious music that is also great to party to.
