U.K. singer-songwriter Becky Hill is due for something pretty special. The Bewdley-born singer has released her debut album titled "Only Honest On The Weekend." She first surfaced on the U.K. edition of “The Voice” in 2012, joining fellow pop star Jessie J’s team before ultimately being eliminated in the semifinal round. Hill’s trajectory from there has been a slow but steady march up the ranks. Through the decade, she has had many successes, top-10 singles and high-profile collaborations. In 2019 and ’20, she was the second-most-streamed female solo artist on Spotify in the U.K. She’d never released an album, though. Hill wrote or co-wrote every track on "Only Honest On The Weekend" and got a helping hand from 220 Kid, Banx & Ranx, and David Guetta. While Hill’s debut may be, the artist is no rookie, evidenced by the expertly crafted record. The pop diva room can often be crowded, but Hill manages to lightly add to those who’ve influenced her while presenting a vocal persona all her own. Fans of Dua Lipa will find much to like with Becky Hill. There’s even a quality of the singer’s former mentor Jessie J in her vocals. Mix in the occasional rawness of P!nk. "Only Honest On The Weekend" provides a faithful and successful entry point for new fans. After finding success in the U.K., Hill will no doubt find a broader U.S. audience.
