Singer Dionne Bromfield first began making headlines when her 2009 debut album lntroducing Dionne Bromfield broke into the top 40 in the UK when she was just 13. Following in the footsteps of her godmother Amy Winehouse‘s 60’s soul inspired sound, Dionne went on to release another critically acclaimed album in 2011, Good For The Soul which acclaimed a MOBO nomination for Best R&B Soul Act, beaten narrowly by Adele.
However, in the years following, Dionne decided to take a break from music and focus on other aspects of her career, including a presenting gig on BAFTA winning Friday Download for four years which also gave her the time she needed to develop as a teenager and now into a young woman.
Listen 'Bad Intentions' :
This instantly infectious new single, ‘Bad Intentions’, represents the maturation of Dionne Bromfield in every sense. Slick neo-soul production, lustful lyrics and breathtaking vocal delivery all amass to represent the period of growth that Dionne has been on over the past 9 years. Speaking about the creative process behind ‘Bad Intentions’, Dionne says:
“Bad Intentions was a track written about a situation that went wrong. As most girls do, they throw themselves into relationships with good intentions, emotions, flying high, they get caught up in the moment, leaving themselves wide open to get hurt if and when it goes wrong. I experienced this and thought – hang on a second why can’t girls go into a relationship with a similar mindset to men? Which didn’t work for me. I remember going into a session speaking about what had happened and they said D let’s write about it… and within an hour we had the song!”
Whilst the intrinsic influence of Amy remains true, ‘Bad Intentions’ sets out a clear and unique blend of soul, R&B and Pop that will form the basis of Dionne’s own sound throughout the year as she looks to continue releasing new music. Exciting times lie ahead.
