Any avid reader of PressPLAY knows that we’re pretty smitten by Yuna, specifically her album Nocturnal (which we placed in our top five albums of 2013). We’re not the only ones, though; her list of collaborators includes Pharrell, Chad Hugo, Robin Hannibal, The Internet, and many more.
Obviously we weren’t going to pass up an opportunity to sit and vibe with the Malay sweetheart. We talk all things pop (that means Miley / Lana / Ri-Ri), feminism, the burdens of being a Muslim star, a truckload of other stuff, and finishing of course with our trademark cheeky rapid-fire.
Oh, and to round it all off there’s a lovely performance of Yuna’s track Escape. We know, we know – we spoil you. Enjoy.
