Ari Abdul – Fallen Angel (EP)

While still only twenty years of age, Ari Abdul has already solidified herself as pop-noir’s newest star.

Lifted from Abdul’s debut ‘Fallen Angel’ EP (out now), ‘BABYDOLL’ and its sister Speed release were the first singles to propel Ari’s name into the spotlight – consequently garnering more than 38 million streams on Spotify alone.

Elaborating further on her EP, Abdul explains:

“You have like these nice, lovely, innocent sounding songs. And by the end of the EP, the songs get really distorted and heavier, and the lyrics get darker. Maybe there’ll be an emotion or a little something that happens in my life in a song, but the EP is completely storytelling. We keep pretty melodies, but still have production and lyrics that completely contradict those pretty melodies.”

Garnering more than 75 million career streams to date, Abdul is most certainly one artist who is likely to hit the global mainstream over the next twelve months.
