GRAMMY® Award-nominated songwriter and rapper Raja Kumari releases her new EP, BLOODLINE [Epic Records] The five-track project is available at all DSPs HERE!

 

About the EP, Kumari explains, “BLOODLINE asks the question, “Who are you?” It’s not just about your family line or your heritage. WHO ARE YOU? What runs through your veins and what are you willing to fight for? This collection of songs was inspired my time in India. I found strength in the Motherland, and these battle anthems are my story, my bloodline.”

 

BLOODLINE boasts the acclaimed single “SHOOK,” produce by Sean Garrett. TIME Magazine commending it as a song that “drips with blustering self-assuredness,” and its Gil Green (Drake, Kanye West)-directed music video has already amassed 3 million views. Check out the video HERE. Last week, Kumari shared “KARMA” from the EP, which Idolator says finds the artist “coming into her own.”  Other highlights include the Hindu-flavored island swooning of “ROBIN HOOD” and dark soul duet “BORN HUSTLA” [feat. Janine The Machine].  Along with Sean Garrett, the EP also includes production work from Danja. Check out the full tracklisting below.

 

Last week, the budding star unleashed the first episode of her very own Apple Music Beats 1 show, The New India, while giving an early play of her song “KARMA.” With new episodes on the horizon, Kumari spotlights some of India’s brightest new talents. The first episode included interviews with rappers Nucleya & Raftaar to discuss the Indian Hip-Hop scene, and DIVINE about the cultural impact of the acclaimed Bollywood film “Gully Boy,” which was just released and co-stars Kumari herself. Check out the exclusive The New India playlist for Beats 1 HERE and check out highlights from the first episode HERE.

 

Additionally, Raja Kumari is currently on the road. After performing to a sold-out crowd at The Roxy in Los Angeles and Gospel in New York earlier this week, she can be found on tour with MNEK with dates in Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco next week. Known for her high-energy performance skills, The Los Angeles Times recently commended her live show at the 2019 Women’s March, exclaiming that Raja “enraptured the audience through her blend of Indian music with hip hop.”  Find tour dates below.

 

Get ready for Raja Kumari to expand worldwide on her own terms in 2019.

About Raja Kumari

Indian-American rapper, singer, songwriter, and dancer Raja Kumari is a force of nature. A fearless, charismatic personality and natural-born storyteller, her mission is to create art that blends her Indian roots with her American upbringing. Her music is a sonic bridge between East and West that fuses the rhythms she absorbed as a trained classical Indian dancer with her love for hip-hop.

 

Kumari made her initial impact on global pop music as a sought-after songwriter. The creative force behind hits like Fall Out Boy’s multiplatinum smash “Centuries,” Iggy Azalea’s “Change Your Life” [feat. T.I.], Fifth Harmony’s “Like Mariah” [feat. Tyga], music for the hit Fox show “Empire,” and numerous anthems for Gwen Stefani have earned her acclaim and accolades across the board. Notably, she received a  GRAMMY® nomination for her work with Azelea and a BMI Pop Award for her work with Fall Out Boy.

 

Emerging as a disruptive force in hip-hop in her own right, Kumari released her debut EP, The Come Up, in 2016. Her solo material has received acclaim and attention from the likes of BillboardPaper MagazineIdolator and Complex and has been featured overseas by the likes of Rolling StoneVogueCosmopolitanHarper’s Bazaar and GQ in India. Recently she performed on the Red Bull Tour Bus tour which showcases breakthrough artists throughout India, and performed as a guest on Amazon Prime’s digital reality show “The Remix”. Sharing the stage with Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman on tour last year at the SSE Arena Wembley, as well as at the 2017 IIFA Awards at MetLife Stadium, Raja continues to collaborate with other artists throughout the world and was recently featured on the international banger “Vamos”, which cracked over 10 million YouTube views in under one week.  Now, with her forthcoming new EP, Raja Kumari is poised to be a global force in her own right.
