Mabel does not take any calls on brand new single
Mabel had a big year in 2018, throwing us bop after bop. She started off with the fantastic ‘Fine Line’, which ended up in our list of best singles of the year. She closed 2018 with the tune ‘One Shot’, while also collaborating with Jax Jones on ‘Ring Ring’. Now she has got another telephone inspired bop ready for us. The new single ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ is out now and absolutely deserves to smash!

When ‘One Shot’ dropped, I wrote that it could become her biggest hit to date. It did not, but in all fairness, ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ is about another three steps up from its predecessor. I know I am repeating myself when it comes to Mabel, but ‘Don’t Call Me Up’ is another certified bop. It stays true to the sound of her most recent material, but the beats are even thicker and the hooks completely irresistible. The melody of the pre-chorus is completely captivating while the actual chorus goes off! On ‘Ring Ring’ it was her partner who was out until the morning and then called her, but this time around it is Mabel who is on the dancefloor not thinking about her ex anymore. “One drink and you’re outta my mind”, she tells him. Ouch! Dare I say it again!? This should become a big fat top 10 hit and not just in the UK, but internationally too, please and thank you!
