Toronto R&B/Soul artist, Taahira Aquiyla Duff, known to her fans simply as Aqyila, is starting 2024 off strong. With the release of the highly-anticipated single, “Bloom,” Aqyila builds on the success of her debut EP, For The Better. In 2021, her first single, “Vibe for Me (Bob for Me),” racked up over 10 million streams worldwide and was most noted as the winner for Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year at the Juno Awards 2024 for her single Hello. Since then, Aqyila has only seen more growth and success. She has landed opening spots for other talented artists like Joyce Wrice and Cat Burns. The rising star’s EP, For The Better, was released last year featuring “Pressure,” and “OH,” both songs showcasing her maturing vocals and songwriting skills. “Hello,” another song on the EP deeply resonated with her audience on TikTok and has become another viral fan favourite.
