Her latest single “Sit Still, Look Pretty” is currently climbing the charts, sitting in the Top 15 on the iTunes chart and Top 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Featured on her debut EP Daya, her first single “Hide Away” is platinum-certified – and quickly approaching double platinum status – garnering more than 205 million streams on Spotify, and notching Top 10 and Top 25 spots on Billboard’s Pop Songs and Hot 100 charts, respectively. Daya’s distinct vocals are also featured on The Chainsmokers’ single “Don’t Let Me Down,” which hit #1 at pop radio and #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with over 520+ million streams on Spotify. Daya has taken 2016 by storm, with Rolling Stone naming her one of their “10 New Artists You Need to Know,” and InStyle including her as one of the “6 Indie Artists You Should Be Listening to in 2016” as well as a number of high-profile performances on TODAY Show, Good Morning America, the Radio Disney Music Awardsand at the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll. She is currently on tour throughout the country and is slated to release her debut full-length album, Sit Still, Look Pretty – which Entertainment Weekly and the New York Times have both called one of the most highly-anticipated albums of the fall – on ArtBeatz on October 7.
