RISING ARAB CANADIAN POP STAR FAOUZIA ANNOUNCES NEW PROJECT “CITIZENS”
Internationally acclaimed Moroccan-Canadian singer, songwriter, fashionista, and overall multi-talent Faouzia has announced her debut album, CITIZENS to be released on 19th May.
The 21-year-old artist explores her own identity and the struggles of being a third culture kid navigating the world. Born in Morocco and growing up in Canada, the tri-lingual musician takes a vulnerable approach to explore how it feels to be “swallowed” up by the power of a big city and living as insignificant as a citizen.
Besides being a musical prodigy Faouzia has also mastered the art of TikTok. Teasing her two most recent singles “RIP, Love” and “Minefields” with non-other than John Legend, she instantly went viral. Her online success was followed up with a sensational live performance of “Minefield” with Legend at an exclusive Chanel Event in Dubai.
“RIP, Love”, also featured on CITIZEN is a unique mix of modern pop meets ancient tunes. Faouzia draws inspiration from her roots as she incorporates elements of Moroccan and Arabic rhythms to accompany the lyrics about a failed love story. Nothing sweeter than a heartbreak tune you can dance to. She hopes to inspire with her music and help her listeners express themselves through her art.
“My favorite thing is hearing that one of my songs helped someone feel motivated or empowered, or even helped them to have a good cry – which sometimes is all you need. I really believe that immersing yourself in music can help you through the tough times in life, and I always hope that my songs can do that for everyone.”
The Arabic/Canadian talent is a true whirlwind conquering the music industry one hit at a time. She is nominated for a prestigious JUNO Award for “Breakthrough Artist Of The Year” and named Vogue’s “Style Stars Set to Make 2022 Exciting”.
Faouzia remains focused on turning her unbridled self-expression into a powerful outlet for her audience with her newest empowering single, “Puppet”. A catchy upbeat tune that encourages you to take your life into your own hands and has us excited about what other bangers await us on CITIZEN.
