Rising star Dakota, the voice behind Jonas Blue’s smash hit multi-platinum selling single ‘Fast Car’, releases her brand new single ‘Hate Loving You’ (Virgin/EMI). The track builds from a ballad into a bass-driven latin inspired groove, and sees Dakota conflicted over a love interest, perfectly showcasing her smoky, seductive vocal style.
The track is the second to be taken from the forthcoming ‘Call Me When You Get This’ EP after the sultry ‘Sober (feat. Not3s)’.
Having grown up in Spain but now based in south London, Dakota was first spotted by Grammy Award winning writer/producer Fraser T. Smith (the man who produced Stormzy’s album ‘Gang Signs and Prayer’) who signed her to his 70Hz label in 2015.
Dakota has been in close collaboration with Fraser ever since, and spent 2017 working with songwriters such as Jamie Scott (One Direction, Rag’N’Bone Man) and Eg White (Adele, Florence & The Machine), honing her distinct vocal style and drawing on her diverse influences.
