Beabadoobee has revealed that she's been taking advice from The 1975's Matty Healy on how to cope with fame.

The Dirty Hit-signed singer/songwriter has had a busy year, and having been nominated for the BRITs Rising Star Award (won by Celeste), Beabadoobee has revealed that she looks to her labelmate Matty Healy for advice on how to cope.

Speaking about her rise to fame to the BBC, Beabadoobee says, "I didn't really expect any of this to happen. I was in the green room at a show in Brighton not long ago and I said to my bass player 'imagine this was the green room for The O2. It was terrifying just even thinking about it like that."

Beabdoobee says that Dirty Hit "feels like family", adding that "everyone helps each other".

She reveals that Matty Healy of The 1975 told her, "You always have to put yourself first", and "told me if I'm looking for inspiration, I should listen to my music, and try and hear it from a different perspective."

Beabdoobee reveals she's taken that advice on board, "So I've been banging out my tunes... I think it's important. You should love what you do."

She's yet to follow up her 2019 EP Space Cadet.

Beabadoobee plays London's O2 Arena with The 1975 on 21 and 22 February. Find out more.
