The fall of 2018 brought with it many things, but a couple of particular memories stand out for us. We are of course speaking of the release of Abir’s debut EP, Mint, and the announcement that she would be supporting Kiiara on tour. The debut EP highlighted a promising new voice who explores the realm of both dance music and R&B with equally impressive prowess. Add that to an EP that sees both a featuring from rising rapper Buddy and a stripped-down rendition of the Cash Cash–assisted, “Finest Hour,” and you have a debut that only left us wanting more.
As we look back on the sonic joy that Abir brought us with Mint and that she brought to fans across the country on tour, we invite you to step onto the stage with the growing R&B sensation. Enjoy as we join Abir in 15 behind-the-scenes photos, as she grabs some ramen and prepares to bring her one-of-a-kind sound to the stage in Los Angeles.

Posing for the camera for a quick impromptu shoot. Loved my outfit by Sem Sem.
There was really dope graffiti behind the regent theater and we decided it would be a good spot for some dope photos!
Running through the set with Kappa in the green room! It’s almost showtime!!!
