Daya has taken 2016 by storm, with Rolling Stone naming her one of their “10 New Artists You Need to Know,” and InStyle including her as one of the “6 Indie Artists You Should Be Listening to in 2016” as well as a number of high-profile performances on Dancing with the Stars, LIVE with Kelly, TODAY Show, Good Morning America, Late Late Show with James Corden, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the Radio Disney Music Awards and at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll. She released her debut full-length album, Sit Still, Look Pretty – which Entertainment Weekly and the New York Times both called one of the most highly-anticipated albums of the fall – on ArtBeatz on October 7. She will embark on her first ever headline tour in February 2017.
Most recently nominated for her first ever GRAMMY Award (Best Dance Recording – “Don’t Let Me Down”) and debuting at #5 on Billboard’s “21 under 21” list, eighteen-year-old breakout musician Daya [pronounced “day-uh”] is driving pop music down a different path. Her latest single “Words” is her fourth song to chart in 2016, following up the success of “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” which is platinum-certified and spent 24 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Featured on her debut EP Daya, her first single “Hide Away” is now double platinum-certified, garnering more than 228 million streams on Spotify, and notching Top 10 and Top 25 spots on Billboard’s Pop Songs and Hot 100 charts, respectively. Daya’s distinct vocals are also featured on The Chainsmokers’ single “Don’t Let Me Down,” which hit #1 at pop radio and #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with over 691+ million streams on Spotify. The track also received nominations at the 2016 American Music Awards (Best Collaboration) and MTV Video Music Awards (Best Electronic Video).
