Home Run is the Debut single by British Singer Misha B, taken from her untitled led debut studio album. It was released as the album’s lead single on the 15th July 2012. It was written and produced by Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike and Misha Bryan. The music video was released on the 15th June 2012.
Home Run received its first airplay on the 31st May 2012. A clip of the single featured on Misha B’s ‘Why Hello World’ mixtape, and the full version of the song was made available to stream via Soundcloud on the 1st June 2012. On the 19th June, Misha B revealed the artwork for the single.
Home Run was co-written and produced by British songwriter MNEK AND Misha Bryan.
‘Home Run is about that special someone who gets you so excited, so hyped that you lose control! When I perform it, I feel that same energy on stage…It makes you wanna dance’ Misha explained.
The song starts off with a typical power ballad style, before quickly transitioning into a glitch drum and bass beat, perfectly complementing Misha B’s brazen, soulful vocal delivery. The feisty beats will be familiar to those who watched Misha’s run on the X Factor. According to Bryan, Home Run ‘is based on a ballad I wrote about my ex and I just changed it up to give it a fresh, fun vibe.’
The music video, which was directed by Rohan Blair-Mangat, was filmed in Middlesex on the 31st May 2012. Ten cans of hairspray, 20 tins of neon paint, Five red lipsticks, 75 sandwiches, 80 packets of crisps, 100 cups of tea, 40 bacon sandwiches, 45 cans of Coke and Two pairs of curling tongs were needed for the shoot. Oh-Well! All in a day’s work. The music video premiered on the 15th June 2012, and was first released on YouTube, at a total length of three minutes and twenty-two seconds.
Digital Spy rated the single 4 out of 5 stars, describing the ‘military drums and swirling sirens that plots somewhere between Nicki Minaj and Missy Elliot, as fresh, exciting and best of all, unmistakably Misha.’
On the 25th June 2012, Misha B performed an acoustic version of the song live for i-D magazine, at Red Bull studios.
This is one British R+B Singer whose success, I believe will just reach higher and higher.
The single is available to download at ITunes (UK) and all other participating music download stores.
