LOUS AND THE YAKUZA RELEASES HER SOPHOMORE ALBUM IOTA

(Paris – November 11, 2022) Lous And The Yakuza releases today her sophomore album Iota out now on Columbia Records – listen here.

Iota is an ode to love in its rarest form – what remains when the passion evaporates. Between the lines, the life of a young, talented Black woman shines through, full of self-doubt, universal power and the mantra that Lous injects into everything she does: the personal is political.

With this new album, Lous serves up an eclectic sound thats free from any cynical flourishes. A pure reflection of her inner world, and the glimpse of an artist with a thousand different influences on her bow for her project produced by El Guincho and Mems, including collaborations with Belgian superstar Damso and BET hip hop award winner Benjamin Epps.

The tracks carve out a whirlwind journey through outpourings and disappointments, following in the footsteps of Lousromantic trials and tribulations like petals ripped from a stem. They love me, they love me not, they love me lots, they love me not at all… Iota.

Lous finally got to meet her fans during her tour last summer including club shows in Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Milan. She performed some of the most prestigious festivals, opened arenas and stadiums for Alicia Keys, Gorillaz and Coldplay, and closed her tour with a first sold-out NYC show.
