I can’t believe I’m announcing this!!!!!!! My sophomore EP, HEAT, will be with you Friday, AUGUST 7TH This project is near and dear to my heart for reasons far beyond music. I consider this project to be the culmination of many years of growth and self-discovery—a journey that extends to a newfound connection with the meaning of my name, an Arabic word that translates as “fragrance of a flower” and ultimately signifies a certain blossoming into the woman I've become. As a daughter of the East and West, I wanted to explore that duality in my music as well as contribute to the conversation surrounding Arab women + challenge the narrative that exists in today's world. I pray you receive this project with an open heartPre-save link in my bio! AUGUST 7TH, YALLAH!!!
