The singer-songwriter boasts international presence, hailing over half a million streams in less than a year. At just 20 years old, the rising star continues to live out her dreams on the daily, creating her own version of expressive Afropop with a Caribbean flare that listeners can’t help but fall in love with.  Now, Alana returns with her newest single titled, “[Chargie](https://lnk.to/Chargie)”, featuring fellow UK native Midas The Jagaban, premiering today exclusively on _Flaunt_. Produced by Mike Brainchild, the feel-good track touches on the concept of love and being in a relationship you never want to end. With Alana’s unmatched sweet vocals intertwined with Midas’ Caribbean & Afropop sound, “Chargie” celebrates friends, love, and life as a whole. Alana states on the inspiration behind the record, “I was originally working on a chorus for another artist which didn’t go into production, so I decided to do more work on it and use it for one of my songs. I was traveling to Birmingham with family and was listening to Nines’ album _Crabs in the Bucket_ for the first time. As soon as I heard the track ‘Ringaling’, I was instantly caught by the emotional production and as always, started singing a chorus to it which was later to become the chorus for ‘Chargie.’ It worked so perfectly I knew I had to finish the song, so I called my producer Mike and went into the studio the following day and created the full track.” Watch the visual above and get ready for that summer romance!
