[June 14, 2024, Toronto, ON] – Today, rising R&B superstar Aqyila continues her ascent, releasing the soulful track “Unbothered.” Listen here.

On the track, Aqyila takes back her power, with a slinky melody and a wicked self-assurance. “Who’s stressing / won’t be me / cause I can love myself / better than you love me,” she sings. Aqyila knows her worth, content to let the universe step in and deal with her ex-lover, finding strength in walking away. “I found my peace in karma / I’m sexier I’m hotter / I’m happier without ya / I like to be unbothered.” This is an R&B jam from a talent who is becoming a powerhouse in the genre.

“Unbothered” comes from the same unstoppable team that brought listeners “Bloom,” Aqyila’s international viral sensation released earlier this year. Co-written by Aqyila and Maya J’an Brown, and produced by Jonathan Elkær (Alina Baraz, Khalid), “Unbothered” continues Aqyila’s incredible year, marked by a JUNO win for ‘Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year’ for “Hello” earlier this Spring. As an artist Aqyila is discovering her power, too, and just beginning to hit her stride.  Stay tuned for more great things from Aqyila.
