HUA LI 化力 ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM

SHARES NEW TRACK “MASTERY”

DYNASTY LP OUT ON SEPTEMBER 20TH
VIA NEXT DOOR RECORDS

LISTEN & SHARE: Hua Li – “Mastery”

WATCH & SHARE: Hua Li – “Mastery” (Music Video)

“Montreal based experimental hip-hop act Hua Li’s newest record “Mastery” is a full display of self-assertiveness sprinkled with a large dose of sassiness.”
– Earmilk

“Hua Li is a rap label’s dream… On the one hand, her approach to rapping, a kind of early ’90s Lil Kim bravado mixed with the more insightful, emotionally resonant lyrics of a Jean Grae, would be menacing if it weren’t so raw and beguiling. Perhaps even more hypnotic is her turn as a crooner, similar to the sultry, jazzy vibes of Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, but with a bit more of a wink”
– Consequence of Sound
Montreal based musician, Hua Li, has announced the release of her debut record, Dynasty, out September 20th via Next Door Records. This will be her first release since signing to Next Door Records. In addition to announcing her new record, Hua Li has also shared the lead single from the project, entitled “Mastery.” Check it out above and stay tuned for more exciting news about the upcoming record!
Dynasty tells of Hua Li’s journey as second-generation Chinese-Canadian woman and deals with topics like deceitful love, family power dynamics and the profound imbalance that emotional adversity can deliver. Written over several years, this album collects the most authentic and personal songs from Hua Li to date, from declaration of feminist power and grace, “Mastery” and melancholic and hazy party anthem, “Social Meds” to devastating takedown of power abused, “Tell Her” and twisted love story, “Outwitted.” A co-production with Alexander Thibualt (a.k.a. Gloze), Dynasty is a combination of Montreal’s tradition of lush, lo-fi future beat with a twist of jazz sensibility and rap braggadocio. Completed with support from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Montréal arts, interculturels, Dynasty is a fierce affirmation of self-representation for Hua Li.

Hua Li’s hazy R&B and revolutionary rap cuts to the bone and shakes your frail ass to the ground. Following the underground success of her 2015 Za Zhong EP, she will be releasing her debut full-length, Dynasty with Next Door Records in September 2019. A charismatic performer, she has been blessed to share her work on a variety of major stages, including the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Pride Toronto and Secret Solstice Festival. She is also an active DJ, regularly rocking the decks with residencies in her hometown of Montreal, and as touring DJ for alternative rap favorite Cadence Weapon, and Indigenous electro-pop starlet Riit. Subversive and sexy, Hua Li is the only half-Chinese, half-militant, half-rapper of your heart.
