Irish pop newcomer Robert Grace links up with Norwegian pop star Emma Steinbakken for a new amazing single “Self”
In the new single “Self”, Robert Grace has once again managed to produce cool and sincere pop with a unique ease. “Self” is carried by a breezy laidback beat and completed by Robert’s and Emma’s distinctive voices. The song is about fighting the inner monologue that tries to ruin every good situation you put yourself in. Robert himself says about “Self”: “I love this song so much because it’s about me. It IS me essentially. Super personal, super raw.”
Robert has enlisted the support of Emma Steinbakken for his new project. Age 18 Emma is already in the midst of a successful career. For example, she has managed to release a number 1 single in Norway and has already collected several million views on YouTube.
Robert shares: “They got in touch with Emma’s team to see what they thought of the song and if she would be interested in the collab. Thankfully she was because her voice is amazing and works so well on the track. We got to chat a few times and since then we are both so excited for the release!”
Previous track “Fake Fine” which went platinum in Ireland, spent five weeks at No 1 on both the Irish Homegrown Charts and the Shazam Ireland Charts. The track currently has amassed 10 million plays on Spotify.
Over the past number of months Robert has collaborated and written with artists and writers like gnash, KIDDO, KIN, Jamie Hartman (Rag N’ Bone Man), and Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran) and has developed into an artist ready to take on the world.
