Mabel has an esteemed musical heritage; the daughter of singer Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack and Portishead producer Cameron McVey. Her godfather is R.E.M’s Michael Stipe.

Speaking previously to the NME about her family, the rising RnB star said she was keen to carve out her own musical path: “I’m not embarrassed to say I’m their daughter. I’m proud of the things I’ve accomplished.”

She added: “I feel like people always assume things, but that’s just life. I work hard and I’m very separate from what my parents do.”
