EDITORS’ NOTES

The indie darling transitions to R&B with spectacular results on Chapters. Early in her career, the Malaysian singer/songwriter made a splash with diary-like songs about identity and growth. This album finds her locked in an R&B groove, with guests like Usher (“Crush”) and Jhené Aiko (“Used to Love You”). Yuna's warm voice is a comforting vessel on slow jams like “Mannequin” and “Lanes.” The deluxe version of Chapters includes “Places to Go,” her collaboration with DJ Premier.

About Yuna

Yuna is the stage name of Yuna Zarai, a Malaysian pop vocalist and guitarist. Born Yunalis Mat Zarai in the town of Kedah, she began writing songs at age 14. She soon taught herself to play guitar, and by 2006, in need of a creative outlet while attending law school, performed for an audience for the first time. Yuna offered her music on her MySpace page, which went on to net over one million plays. This online success tipped off the Indie-Pop label/management company to her music, and in early 2011 she signed with the Fader label. Joined by guitarist Pa'an, bassist Efry Arwis, and drummer Adib Azfar (and later, Adil Ali), Yuna made her recorded debut in Malaysia in 2008 with a self-titled EP, which went on to snag five Anugerah Industri Muzik nominations (the Malaysian equivalent of the Grammy). She took home four trophies, including Best New Artist and Best Song (for the breakout hit "Deeper Conversation"). The Decorate EP followed two years later (and was released stateside in spring 2011). Decorate included the viral hit "Rocket," which won raves from Billboard magazine, indie rock radio station KEXP, and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, as well as ink in SPIN's Eight Bands You Need to Hear Now. On the performance end, Yuna was nominated as one of MTV Iggy's Best New Bands in the World in 2011, and she marked the occasion by playing at the historic MTV Studios. Yuna rang in 2012 with a new single, "Live Your Life," produced by Pharrell Williams as a preamble to her self-titled full-length debut, which arrived that April. Summer 2012 found Yuna sharing the Lollapalooza stage with the likes of Florence + the Machine, Jack White, and Childish Gambino. In 2013, Yuna returned with the album Nocturnal, featuring the single "Falling." In February 2016, Yuna previewed her third album with the release of "Places to Go," a single produced by hip-hop legend DJ Premier. The full album, Chapters, was released three months later. ~ Chrysta Cherrie
