PRE-ORDER THE ALBUM HERE
Buzzing R&B songstress Dounia has release her latest single “DELIGHTFUL“ today via all digital and streaming platforms. Featured on her forthcoming album THE SCANDAL, due out July 17th through EMPIRE, “DELIGHTFUL” displays darker and moodier overtones, complimenting Dounia’s beautiful, lower-key register, as well as her signature brand of sharp, soulful R&B prowess. The album will include five previously released tracks including acclaimed singles “LOWKEY GRL” and “TOXIC”, both from last May’s NOT GOOD FOR THE EGO EP, as well as 7 new tracks (full list below). Starting today, fans will be able to pre-order THE SCANDAL via all digital and streaming platforms. Pre-order your copy HERE.
Amidst a very productive year, Dounia’s star continues to shine. Since the spring, the bubbling-under recording artist has zig-zagged North America playing a number of major music festivals including BUKU Music + Arts Festival, SunFest and Soundset. She’ll continue the festival circuit this summer and fall with a coveted performance at Diplo’s Mad City Festival on July 20th in Boston, and Rolling Loud Bay Area on September 28th in Oakland. Last November, she released her sophomore EP The Avant-Garden, which included the critically acclaimed single “Rich Girl Mood,” featuring R&B singer-songwriter Kehlani. In late October, she joined French pop star Christine and the Queens on a series of tour dates across North America, which included sold-out shows in New York and Los Angeles. In a recent feature profile, Vogue dubbed Dounia as a “Modern day bombshell” who “hasn’t just arrived. She’s arrived.” In a 2019 V Magazine piece, she was dubbed as “New York’s very own princess,” who is “a lot more than a pretty face.” In January 2019, she was included on Refinery29’s coveted Z-List. Most recently, Teen Vogue spotlighted Dounia as a “rising music star” in their annual music issue.
Queens-born and Moroccan raised, Dounia has been amassing an impressive following with her relatable songs and personality, using her platform to champion body positivity as much as her talent. Dounia made her debut in 2017 with the genre-bending “Intro To” EP, which produced the hits “East Coast Hiding” and “Shyne.” Since that release, Dounia has garnered the attention of Vogue, V Magazine, TIME Magazine, The FADER, Dazed, VICE, and Highsnobiety, among others.
