The LP features collaborations with acclaimed artists Tyler, the Creator, G-Eazy, Little Simz and more. “I’ve always wanted to make a very classy album,” Yuna explains of the new record, “I’ve become the woman I’ve always wanted to be. The whole album is about how I am with myself. I’m comfortable with my relationship, with my focus on my career. It’s the color of becoming this woman that I am.”

The video was conceptualized by Yuna herself with Adam Sinclair. It was written, directed and edited by Esteban Valdez with executive producers Carl Jones and Brian Ash (The Boondocks, Black Dynamite).
Born in Kedah, Malaysia and raised primarily in Kuala Lumpur, Yuna now splits her time between Malaysia and Los Angeles (where she recorded Rouge). “I’m a Muslim singer-songwriter, but I never saw myself as that,” she explains. “That label became more obvious to me as I moved to LA…it was really cool that everyone I met supported the fact that I do my own thing and don’t sacrifice my identity for the music.”
Yuna began writing songs and teaching herself to play guitar at age 14. She recorded her debut album in 2008, earning her five Malaysian Music Award nominations. Her U.S. debut EP, Decorate, featured production by Grammy-award winning producer Pharrell Williams. Rouge follows 2016’s critically acclaimed Chapters, which features collaborations with Usher, Jhené Aiko ad DJ Premier. Billboard included the album in their Critics’ Picks for Best R&B Albums, and the single “Crush” featuring Usher peaked at #3 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Chart.
