Mahalia has shared a piece of her heart in her latest visual release titled “Grateful (Live At O2 Academy Brixton).” The clip is a recap from her most recent show where she performed her classic tracks to a full crowd of 5,000 people, a visual representation of all the years of hard work. It is titled after one of her most well-loved hits “Grateful,” where her pen shines and shows off the lyrics her fans know and love:

You make my heart go boom, oh baby, it’s that look in your eyes that makes you the prize/ I wish we were together, right now, it’s true, you make my body feel loose/ Oh baby, it’s the way that you lay, the way that you play/ I’m praying for forever, as well as now

After being pushed back for a year and a half due to the ongoing pandemic, Mahalia’s biggest performance finally came into fruition, and the timing couldn’t be more poetic. “I think right now is the perfect time for me to play Brixton,” she says in the video. “I feel ready, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, physically I’m in the right place. Lockdown the past year and a half in the peace and quiet was a blessing because I had all this time to really get in tune with myself and really understand who the hell is Mahalia .”

At the end of September, Mahalia and AJ Tracey released their collaboration track “Roadside.” The track quickly rose to be well-loved, and a few weeks later Mahalia returned once again to show it more love and deliver an acoustic version of the song.

It’s been a couple of years since Mahalia liberated her sophomore studio LP LOVE AND COMPROMISE, which saw 13 tracks and additional features from Burna Boy, Terrace Martin, Hamzaa, Lucky Daye, and Ella Mai. She shared Isolation Tapes last year, which came with three unreleased cuts for fans to enjoy. More recently, the Leicestershire talent delivered a couple of new singles, “Jealous” with Rico Nasty and “Whenever You’re Ready,” giving us hope that a new body of work is arriving sooner than later.

Be sure to press play on Mahalia’s new performance of “Grateful” down below.
