Selah Sue – “Break” / “On The Run” [Exclusive Premiere]

3 years ago written by

Praised for her refined genre-bending signature blend of soul, hip-hop, funk, and reggae and her palatable, gimmick-free pop sensibilities, Selah Sue‘s major label debut is finally set to be released in the US. EARMILK is proud to premiere two songs off the internationally acclaimed Belgian-born sensation’s eponymous LP.

“Break”, a song exclusively available on the U.S. release of Sue’s self-titled album, is a beautiful and emotive song on which Selah’s soulful and raspy vocals are paired nicely with an acoustic guitar.

The second song “On The Run”, another exclusive track included on the U.S. release of Selah Sue, is a distinctly soulful number ripe with brooding guitar/bass riffs and sultry vocal work from Selah Sue. 

Originally released in March of last year in Europe, Selah’s debut LP has already topped the Belgian album charts  as well charting in the debuting in the top ten in France and the Netherland, as well charting in Poland and Switzerland. With a devoted international following in tow and more than 400,000 units sold already following a limited European release, the Belgian songstress’ LP is slated to make quite an impact when it’s released stateside next August 21 via Columbia Records

In addition to the US version of her hit single “Raggamuffin” featuring Roc Nation‘s J. Cole and “Break” and “On th Run” the U.S. version of the album will include a third exclusive, never-before-heard song entitled “Fade Away.” In promotion of her album Sue will hit the road on separate  tours in North America with Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sandé and Allen Stone.

    Those are some phat tracks! Selah Sue rocks.

  • Dan Fratoni

    Picked up the album today, and can’t wait to see her perform on these US dates! Do yourself a favor and grab a copy:

  • Emma Aistrop

    Thanks for the post! All I’ve heard so far is Raggamuffin, although, I was definitely missing out. I just got a hold of her full length that she made available on iTunes for only a week…with today being the last day, so I found out just in time!!

  • Dave Manville

    The new album is DOPE! Raggamuffin has been stuck in my head for the last few days. The video for that song is really crazy, such a great concept. Hope I get the chance to catch her tour in the states!
