Abir’s musical journey has seen her spread irresistible soulful pop from her native Morocco to her newfound home in the US, and it is only a matter of time until the already-growing international sensation becomes a worldwide one. Immaculately fusing elements of dance-pop with soulful and powerful vocals reminiscent of Dua Lipa, Daya, and Alessia Cara, Abir made her first major step in joining her contemporaries with the release of her debut EP Mint.
The six-track offering, which featured both rising rapper Buddy and dance sensation Cash Cash, illustrated Abir’s promise as an impressive new voice in pop who does not always play by the rules. For all this and more, it was our pleasure to invite Abir to perform a stripped-down rendition of “Reunion” from her debut EP. Abir spoke further on “Reunion” when it was first released, sharing,
“Back in my hometown, there’s always a ‘reunion’ the day before Thanksgiving where all the homies and people I grew up with link up at the same bar and catch up It’s like a high school reunion. I missed it a couple years in a row, so when I finally had the chance to make it to one, it was so crazy seeing how grown up and different everyone was. It’s insane how fast time flies and how much we change.”
