About MNEK

Uzoechi Emenike, better known by his stage name MNEK, is a British singer, songwriter and record producer. Alongside his own work as a recording artist, he has produced and co-written hits for the likes of Madonna, Beyoncé, Kylie Minogue, Little Mix, Stormzy, Jax Jones and Zara Larsson.

Initially uploading his self-produced demos to MySpace and Soundcloud, he was noticed by the production house Xenomania–the brains behind the bulk of Girls Aloud’s tracks–and worked with the team on a number of songs in 2011. One of these, “All Fired Up”, went on to be recorded by girl group The Saturdays: one of the lines he wrote (“keep me on your radar”) inspired the parent album’s title. He also worked extensively with Rudimental and A*M*E throughout 2012.

In late 2013, he made his breakthrough appearance on the song “Ready for Your Love” by Gorgon City, which became his first of three UK top 10 singles. His debut EP Small Talk followed in April 2015, which included his UK top 40 single “The Rhythm” and his official solo debut, “Every Little Word”. “Never Forget You”, a collaboration with Zara Larsson, would later become a US top 20 hit, while also reaching #1 in Sweden.

After releasing a number of standalone singles, MNEK confirmed the release of his debut album with its lead single, “Tongue”, in February 2018. Language eventually followed that September, also featuring the promotional single “Paradise” and “Colour” featuring Hailee Steinfeld.
