Who is she? Mabel McVey, based in London

Why you should love her: Well apart from the fact that her mother is music Icon Neneh Cherry and her dad is Massive Attack producer Cameron McVey, this amazing singer is making her own rules in the music industry and giving us another generation of music to fall for.


The Fashion: Pure 90s, a little bit of Aaliyah mixed with her mother’s classic denim styles. Her gold hoops, Calvin Klein logo clothing, and dream manicures offer a modern take on the look.


The Sound: Dreamy, soulful R&B.

Essential Track: Know Me Better and Thinking of You…
