Yunalis Mat Zara’ai, professionally known as Yuna is a Malaysian singer-songwriter and businesswoman. Born and raised in Kedah, she began writing songs at age 14. She soon taught herself to play guitar, and by 2006, in need of a creative outlet while attending law school, performed for an audience for the first time.

Yuna recently signed with Verve Music Group. Multiple Grammy-winning producer David Foster, who heads the creative operations of Verve, tweeted: “I’m really excited about the next hot artist to join Verve Music. Stay tuned and keep an eye out for Yuna.

Yuna possesses a  light lyric soprano voice. She once described her music as “a cross between Mary Poppins and Coldplay”. I would describe her style more of mixture of Erykah Badu and British soul music.

Her latest album “Chapters” is already in stores and as a new music Friday tune i choose ‘Places To Go’, an excellent track. Listen on your own and watch the video below.
