    Song Premiere: Kayla "How An End Starts" -

    Enjoy this soulful pop ballad from the singer's upcoming EP.

    Happy Hump Day! We've teamed up with London-based alt pop singer Kayla, who has a gorgeous, emotionally evocative voice which reminds us a bit of Demi Lovato, but with more soul, to premiere her song "How An End Starts" from #ThisIsKaylaMusic, her new EP out June 23.

    "I love the lyrics in 'How An End Starts' because they relate to the moment you realize you have nothing left to give in a relationship and are okay with letting go for yourself. It's liberating," Kayla told us.

    Who hasn't been there, felt that?

    When you reach the end of the road and have to end a relationship, it's tough to extricate yourself and to move on, but there comes a moment in which you realize that there is nothing left to hold on to.

    It's one of life's true "Ouch!" moments, and Kayla, a grad of the BRIT School, which Amy Winehouse, Jessie J, Adele and more have attended, crystallizes that very feeling in this soulful, passionate power ballad.

    Kayla began crafting makeshift vocal demos at 13 while listening to artists like Prince, Sade, and Kate Bush. We're glad she's still doing her thing.

    "How An End Starts" might make you a bit blue, given its weighty subject matter and emotional heft, but it will also provide serious comfort if you are smack dab in the middle of a disintegrating relationship. It's that beautiful and captures a feeling.

    —Amy Sciarretto

    '#ThisIsKaylaMusic' from Kayla is due out June 23, 2015.
