ABIR’s new EP MINT is totally badass and yet only a mere glimpse of her potential.
The Moroccan singer showcases her sultry smooth voice and hypnotizing lyrics in her new EP. MINT takes the listener through the trials and tribulations of the twenties. Singles “Young & Rude” and “Lose Me” are your newest bad bitch ballads. Reckless and relentless, ABIR infuses pop anthem “Young & Rude” with R&B and reminds girls that they shouldn’t shy away from their attitudes. Slowed down, yet unfalteringly powerful, track “Lose Me” warns that she’s the last person to be taken advantage of.
Balancing this confidence are the more vulnerable moments of her youth. Tracks “Tango”, “Reunion” and “For Ya” touch on the frustrations of lovers and lack of commitment. She covers everything from respect in relationships to the lengths she’ll go for her passionate love.
Concluding the project beautifully is her single “Finest Hour – Acoustic” which finally delves into ABIR as a human. Stripping the beat from the original version and keeping bare instruments emphasizes the true intimacy of the song. She accounts for her faults and recognizes that she has a lot of growing to do in the future.
Listen to MINT on any main streaming platform.
