In 2015, Music and Other Drugs was introduced to singer/songwriter, Wafia. In 2015, she collaborated with Ta-Ku on one of our favorite songs of that year, “American Girl.” The same year, Wafia released her debut EP XXIX, which featured the single, “Heartburn.” Wafia is back and kicking off 2018 on a strong note. She has just released her sophomore EP VIII. The six-track project includes the singles “83 Days,” “Bodies,” and “Only Love.” Wafia’s music is in a lane of its own. Listening to this project, we were enthralled with Wafia’s lyricism and productions from beginning to end. Since emerging on the scene in 2015, Syrian-Iraqi artists music has grown, and you can feel each experience in her lyrics and notes that she sings. in addition to her new project, VIII, the rising star is embarking on her North American tour set to start on January 22nd in Vancouver, and end on February 3rd in Washington, D.C. Full dates of the tour are below. Listen to Wafia’s brand new EP VIII below or via YouTube.
