Will Take the Stage at Lollapalooza
NEW YORK, NY (August 4, 2023) – Rising popstar Ari Abdul releases her new single “Make Me Cry” feat. Deadbeat Girl ahead of her Lollapalooza performance. The new offering is out now via Slumbo Labs/RCA Records, listen HERE.
The melancholic melody and the haunting instrumental at the beginning of the song contributes to its dark and sensual atmosphere before unleashing into an electrifying beat. A hypnotic dance anthem, the new single contrasts Ari’s smooth vocals with a strong, perfectly paced beat, both equally addictive and percussive.
““Make Me Cry” is a song about loving someone to the point where you would allow them to hurt you,” says Ari. “It’s about someone who isn’t good for you but not caring and still wanting them despite that.”
Ari will hit the Lollapalooza stage in Chicago this weekend, a highlight for the artist.
Abdul is set to hit the road on her first ever tour, titled HELLGIRL, on September 11th in Toronto. Tickets are on sale now and the full list of tour dates can be found below and at https://www.ariabdul.com/tour/.
ABOUT ARI ABDUL
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Ari Abdul has forged her own brand of dark alternative pop. Music quickly became a second language for Ari Abdul growing up in Brooklyn. Her Ecuadorian mom loved Latin music while her Costa Rican/ Palestinian father introduced her to classic rock. Rounding everything out were her brothers who were all about hip-hop and metal. She graduated to electric guitar at 14 and started playing grunge songs inspired by Nirvana. But she was too nervous to share her work – let alone her voice- with anyone. She had friends in choir, but that wasn’t the musical direction she saw herself going. It wasn’t until LaRosa’s mom encouraged Abdul to create her own music in July 2021 that lit the spark to share her voice with the world.
She combines the reverb-heavy swells of your favorite shoegaze artists such as The Neighborhood and Lana Del Rey. Combining an array of visual and stylistic influences, Ari has cultivated a mysterious edge to her artistic endeavors. Earlier this year, she released her debut single “BABYDOLL” followed by the sped-up version “BABYDOLL (Speed).” Both versions garnered viral success with over 83M global streams, 400M TikTok views, and 420K TikTok creations.
