German-American singer-songwriter has released her new song, “Notoriety” featuring Philadelphia-based Haitian singer-songwriter Nathalie Cerin known as Talie, off her collaborative EP, “Solèy.”
“Solèy” is a joint project between Bibi Bourelly, talented music producer and songwriter SamTrax and Poet Maureen Boyer.
Bourelly released her first single, “Riot”, a song that discusses Bourelly’s wish to be recognized as an “authentic” and legitimate musician in 2015. That same year, she was featured on Lil Wayne’s “Without You”, which appeared on his Free Weezy Album. A month later, she was featured in (and co-wrote) Nick Brewer’s “Talk to Me”.
Bibi Bourelly also co-wrote (with Chris Braide) Selena Gomez’s “Camouflage” from her album, Revival, and was featured in Usher’s single, “Chains”, alongside Nas. She performed the latter song with Usher and Nas at the TIDAL X Concert in October 2015.
In October 2015, Bourelly released another single entitled, “Ego”. The song made it onto the Spotify Viral Charts for several nations, peaking at No. 2 in the US, No. 8 in the UK, and No. 4 on the overall global charts. The song has been described as a “powerful, unapologetic ballad to self confidence”. The music video for “Ego” was filmed in Bourelly’s hometown of Berlin and was directed by Branwen Okpako.
In March 2016, the third single, “Sally” was released accompanied by an interactive video. She made her television debut on the NBC Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
In the summer of 2016, Bourelly toured with Haim and Rihanna prior to going on her solo “Free The Real” tour in North America. She was also featured in the well-known Women Who Dare campaign by Harper’s Bazaar alongside Hillary Clinton, Iskra Lawrence, and Uma Thurman.
