Last night marked the annual BRIT Awards, and Rising Star Award recipient, upcoming artist and soul queen Celeste stole the spotlight (literally) at the 2020 Brit Awards last night with her bone-chilling performance of “Strange,” co-written and produced by Reservoir’s Jamie Hartman.
Everybody from Victoria Beckham to Stormzy can’t stop talking about it….
Victoria Beckham called Celeste one of her “favorite artists” and even used “Strange” on the soundtrack to her London Fashion Week on Sunday at Beckham’s “tenth anniversary of her brand and her first show in the British capital.”
“Señorita” singer Camila Cabello took to Instagram to to express her love, calling Strange “one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard in my life.”
British Rapper and winner of Brit Award for British Male Solo Artist, Stormzy, bumped into Celeste backstage and gushed about how “Strange” was “the perfect song” and that he “wished he had wrote it.”

Celeste’s streams have since increased by a whole 212% on Spotify following last night’s BRITs, as reported by Metro UK.
The Guardian called “Strange” a “spellbinding ballad,” calling the soul singer’s voice “truly devastating” and comparing her performance to the legendary Amy Winehouse.
Even Celeste herself was taken back by her award and seemed a little startled backstage! She gave thanks to Reservoir writer Jamie Hartman, exclaiming “Thank you Jamie! I love you! Thanks for having the patience to write songs with me!”
