For a while, ABIR’s songwriting didn’t quite match her reality. Not having been in one, she was "writing these heartbreaking songs as if I'd been in a 10-year relationship.”
But as she rose through the NYC pop scene, and upon discovery by Atlantic Records in an opening show slot, it’s been an authentic adjustment. Hearing her story will illustrate that progression, while also letting you in on her early attachment to Keyshia Cole, and explaining why she decided on “MINT” for her 2018 EP title. Simply put, you’ll meet a rising creative at peace with herself, along with the life experiences she now has to draw upon.
"Respect: The Women of Atlantic" is a special series on What’d I Say. It’s hosted by Colleen “Cosmo” Murphy, founder of Classic Album Sundays.
