Debut Tour, HELLGIRL, Starts September 11th in Toronto
NEW YORK, NY (June 30, 2023) – Rising popstar Ari Abdul releases her new single “Worship” via Slumbo Labs/RCA Records. “Worship” is off her upcoming EP scheduled for a Fall 2023 release. Listen HERE.
After releasing her debut EP Fallen Angel in October of 2022, which featured her viral debut single “BABYDOLL”, Ari has released a slew of singles including the most recent “Haunt Your Dreams,” the beautifully twisted “You,” and the upbeat alt-pop “Bored.” With the release of “Worship”, Ari continues to show her growth as an artist and gives fans a taste of what they can expect from the upcoming EP. “”Worship” is a song about false illusion and God complexes,” says Ari. “We wanted to make this song feel like desperation for being wanted and loved.”
This August, Ari will be playing at Lollapalooza in Chicago and 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.
