In 2001, Nadia Ali was the frontwoman and principal songwriter for the duo Iio (pronounced “eye-oh”), who took the world by storm with their international smash Rapture. They released a series of singles culminating in the release of a full album titled Poetica, in 2005. That same year, Nadia left the group to pursue a solo career.
Nadia is notable for her distinct vocals with a middle-eastern tinge despite growing up in Brooklyn. Her first album saw four singles released with the second Love Story topping the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.
Since that time, Nadia has collaborated with some of the biggest DJs in the world and has virtually ensured her position as the Queen of Electronica.
While some of the company she’ll be holding ground with may make an exception to the title of “Queen of Anything,” (watch your back with Miss Ross), there is no denying her status as the Diva of Electronica.
Party Favorz would like to honor Miss Ali by inducting her into the Diva Hall of Fame. Nadia is currently working on a second album titled Phoenix and in all likelihood be inducted again at a future date.
Attention, if you have no clue who she is, download this puppy, hit play, and turn it LOUD! I promise you’ll quickly become a convert.
Until the next time…ENJOY!
