Lebanese-Canadian streaming sensation Mougleta today drops her introspective new banger “Lonely Girl” alongside “Rocket Ride”, a massive collaboration with powerhouse K-pop act OH MY GIRL & German DJ Keanu Silva.
Blending vocoded rap vocals and sombre guitar sounds across a hard-hitting trap beat, “Lonely Girl” deals with the way our current society distorts the lines of reality and fiction. The track aims to continue Mougleta’s streak of carefully produced gems which have racked up well over 20M+ streams and almost 400K monthly listeners on Spotify, while her rising house hit “Dancing in the Dirt” with buzzing dance collective Glockenbach continues to breakthrough into the mainstream across Europe.
Releasing the track with a stylish and chic visual effort, Mougleta shared of “Lonely Girl”: “They say just because you’re thirsty you shouldn’t drink poison. ‘Lonely Girl’ is a song about the world we live in today where the lines of reality and fiction are blurred. We share a life of happiness and glamour with the world that we’re not actually living or feeling. This leaves many of us empty inside. ‘Lonely Girl’ is about the difference between seeing and living.”
Uniquely fusing traditional Arabic influences with Western pop sounds, the Berlin-based songstress has been seriously cutting through in 2020 beside significant playlist support via Hitradio and Global X; the jagged midnight synth sounds in “Madness”, slick vibes of “Valentino Rossi” and confrontational “Hold My Cup” all helping the artist carve her own lane in the pop world.
Drawing her stage name from the Jungle Book character Mougli – a relatable figure to the nomadic artist, who felt she didn’t belong anywhere growing up – Mougleta takes inspirations from daily nuances, such as music from the taxis on the streets of Beirut to the late-night rush of Toronto or the buildings of Berlin; Mougleta’s musical jungle tells empowering tales of heartbreak and absolute happiness, dreams and magic.
More music is imminent, which will surely continue this rising talent’s transition to a new sphere of global recognition.
