Yuna at 9:30 Club Tuesday September 27: Amazing Artist

59-elgTomorrow night September 27, Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna will be playing the 9:30 Club. Get tickets!

Rolling Stone has hailed Yuna’s latest, Chapters, one of the Best R&B albums of 2016. With collaborators like Usher, Pharrell and DJ Premier, her music is packed with retro-futuristic urban grooves.

Yuna once described her music as “a cross between Mary Poppins and Coldplay,” a quote that she now says, “I can’t believe people still hold onto that! It was a quote that I had on, like, my MySpace music page seven years ago. But yeah, what I meant to say is I like to incorporate a lot of different genres in my music, and, you know, having a sense of honesty and sincerity in the lyrics as well. But I’m still pop at the same time.”

Yuna is a devout Muslim — a breakthrough in the American music industry. Stunningly gorgeous as well as talented, she’s currently the face of Uniqlo and has an 8-page fashion spread in the September issue of InStyle. Yuna has been featured on Forbes 30 under 30 and has her own clothing line, November Culture. She’s recently been featured in Nylon’s music issueNew York Magazine and Billboard.

Here is the video of her popular single with Usher, Crush.

And here’s a video for her upbeat and sweet I Wanna Go:

Tickets are still available online and at the door for Yuna tomorrow night at 9:30 Club. I’ll be there – join me!

Disclosure: Review tickets were offered to me after I reached out to help spread the word about Yuna’s DC show.
