The release of ‘VooDoo’ marks another milestone in SHAB’s impressive musical journey, following a series of successful releases, including hits like ‘Indestructible’ and ‘Dolce Vita’. Fans eagerly anticipate the possibility that these tracks might be included in SHAB’s highly anticipated second album.

Born in Iran during a time of radical transition, SHAB, now 42, fled her home at just eight-years-old to escape what she has labelled “the gangster regime”. Then moved to America by herself at just fourteen. 

Aspiring to live a normal life of freedom, she went on to graduate university and attend law school. Instead, she found success as a global star.

Having already worked with prominent figures in the industry, such as the Martinez Twins, and sharing the stage with artists of incredible stature during her tours, SHAB is no stranger to collaborating with top-level talent, but Fat Joe brings things to a new level.

The Bronx hip-hop heavyweight, Fat Joe has achieved multiple multiplatinum and gold studio albums since his rise to fame in the ‘90s.

His involvement in ‘VooDoo’ adds an extra layer of prestige to the project, creating a musical masterpiece that is sure to captivate audiences worldwide.

Reflecting on the profound impact Fat Joe has had on her musical journey, SHAB shared, “I remember as to how night clubs would come alive whenever the initial beats of ‘Lean Back’ would trumpet from a sound system — and to think that years later I would be working with the legendary Fat Joe is still amazing to me.”

She went on to say how she felt regarding her involvement in the project, “I was thrilled when Joe agreed to take part in this extraordinary project.”

Emerging during the global lockdown, SHAB quickly caught attention worldwide. Her talent and artistry shone through as she secured four consecutive #2 hits on the British Commercial Pop Charts. This year, she continued to build on that momentum with the release of her richly textured track, ‘Sexual’, which immediately claimed the #2 spot on the British Commercial Pop Charts.

With an impressive 20 million YouTube views, 7 million Spotify streams, alongside a top-four position on the Commercial Pop Top 50 Chart, SHAB is undoubtedly on her way to establishing herself as a prominent name in the music industry.
