Rising star Mabel released her debut album, High Expectations, today and expressed her emotions on Instagram.
“Very emotional because today an almost three-year-long journey has come to an end. First of all, I want to say thank you for your patience because without it I wouldn’t have been able to give you this body of work. It took time, many lessons, ups, downs, heartbreak and all of the bits in between to be able to make the project that I’ve always dreamt of making,” she wrote in a long caption.
At the album launch party last night, the “Bad Behaviour” songstress owned a bright neon-colored ensemble which didn’t go unnoticed, per The Daily Mail. She wore a pair of skintight PVC pants, matching it with a bra, and accessorized the look with a jeweled necklace. Her midriff was showing while she rocked long blonde hair and stilettos. The sassy hitmaker showed off a tattoo on her arm and posed for photographers with a hand-on-hip pose.
Her highly-anticipated album consists of 20 tracks and a number of hit singles. “Finders Keepers” became her first U.K. top 10 hit, peaking at No. 7, and “Don’t Call Me Up” remains her most successful single, going gold in the U.S. and platinum in the U.K., Australia, Canada, and Sweden.
