Ella Eyre: The moments that made me a pop icon

Ella Eyre takes us through the biggest moments in her life and career from her first Carnival to judging the Mercury Awards.

Ella Eyre is preparing for pop domination all over again. Two years after her Top 5-charting debut album Feline, she’s back in the upper echelons of the charts, teaming up first with Sigala for their dancefloor igniting single ‘Came Here For Love’ and now Ty Dolla $ign on her own new single, ‘Ego.’ She’s not just lighting up the charts however, and at only 23 she’s been enlisted to judge one of the most prestigious awards in the country, the Mercury Prize. It’s safe to say then that in the tail end of 2017 you can expect to see and hear a whole lot more of Ella.

Before she totally takes over the rest of the year, we wanted to find out more about the journey she took to get here. Notion had Ella in the office recently (more on that coming soon), and we managed to get a little bit extra of her time for an exclusive Mood Board. Documenting how she became the soon-to-be pop icon she is, Ella’s picked out some of the most significant moments in her life/ career to date and let us in on the stories behind them. Scroll through the gallery below.

‘Ego ft. Ty Dolla $ign’ is out now via Virgin EMI.
