Becky Hill says her debut album is finally ready for release – over a decade after she found fame as a contestant on the first ever series of The Voice UK.
The 27-year-old was a member of Jessie J’s team on the BBC show when it first launched back in 2012, and went on to enjoy chart success alongside artists including Sigala, Jonas Blue, and even hit number 1 in 2014 with the single Gecko (Overdrive) with Oliver Heldens.
Now the star is finally ready to release her debut album after previously releasing a compilation album of tracks she had lent vocals to in 2019.
Becky has a new song with French superstar David Guetta titled Remember and is planning to tour later in the year and feature at a string of festivals in the UK.
She told The Sun: “My whole career has built up to this. I have a sure-fire single with David Guetta and an album I’ve spent my whole adult life making finally coming out.
“I’ve grafted and strived to reach this milestone for a few years now and my patience has definitely been tested.
“But it’s been worth the wait, as my creativity and vision for the album has now come to full fruition.”
Becky was a contestant on season one of The Voice – which was ultimately won by Leanne Mitchell who had been coached by Sir Tom Jones.
She went on to win the honour of being the first, and only so far, number one singer produced by The Voice UK when her son, Gecko (Overdrive) hit the top spot in 2014.
Fellow contestants in the first season of the show included Bo Bruce and Tyler James – the latter who was friends with the late Amy Winehouse.
Earlier this month, however, Amy’s family slammed the 35-year-old saying they felt ‘betrayed’ after he released a book about their friendship.
My Amy: The Life We Shared, written by Tyler, was published earlier this month and detailed how Sheridan Smith helped save Amy’s life two years before she died.
But Amy’s family, particularly her parents Mitch and Janis, were reportedly left upset after believing that Tyler would be the one person who wouldn’t try to cash in on her fame.
A source told The Sun: “Tyler had been close since his early teens and they considered him one of their own. But they weren’t told or consulted about this book.
“Key people in her life have just been left out. Tyler paints himself as the only one trying to help Amy while others exploited her,” they continued.
A spokesperson told the publication: “Amy’s parents are disappointed that Tyler has gone ahead with this book without consulting them, and dispute many of his claims.”
