The Platinum-Selling Star Comes to Long Island on the Heels of Recent Collaboration with Renowned Reggae Fusion Sensation SHAGGY
Westbury, NY (March, 2016) — On Saturday, March 12th The Space at Westbury will welcome the bright melodic flame of one of Sweden’s biggest rising stars – Arash – as he performs for his only New York stop for his 2016 U.S. Tour! With hits like 2014’s “She Makes Me Go” Featuring Sean Paul and “Sex Love Rock N Roll” Featuring T-Pain, his self-titled debut album propelled him to the world stage in 2005 and he’s continued to soar.
“Arash” was released by the Warner Music Sweden in June 2005, after the singer (born Alex Arash Labaf) had finished college. His singles, “Boro Boro” (“Go Away”) and “Temptation” (featuring Rebecca) made it to the hit lists around Europe, and their respective videos garnered significant airplay on more than 20 MTV outlets across the world. In addition to successes on his home country’s’ music charts, namely Sweden and Iran, the platinum-selling singer and producer has had hits notably in Eastern European and South-East European charts like Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania, Turkey and in Asian music charts like in Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and throughout the Arab Middle Eastern countries. His singles have charted in Switzerland and Finland, and he is especially a renowned figure in Poland.
Arash’s records were certified gold in 5 countries: his album Arash in Germany, Russia, Slovenia and Greece, and single “Boro Boro” in Sweden. This song was also featured in the Hindi Bollywood film “Bluffmaster!” and he was the featured Artist of the Month on MTV India. Staking his claim as one of the biggest pop music sensations to originate from Sweden, home to such pop pioneers as Abba and Ace of Base, the distinction of being the only music impresario of Persian heritage whose success has translated into the Western and European mainstream music market makes his story one for the history books!
Following the three-year crest of success emphatically spearheaded by the release of his self-titled debut via Warner Music, Arash is ready to parlay his unprecedented musical rise into a dynamic sophomore album that is sure to ignite the zeal of his super fans and garner the curious ear of millions of new admirers. The project, appropriately titled Donya (World) is tentatively set for release in May, and features a global sound that injects the listener with a lethal rhythm of western production and mediterranean harmony. The blockbuster first single, “Donya,” is a buzz-inducing collaboration with Kingston, Jamaican reggae maestro SHAGGY, whose career has been defined by a string of platinum-selling U.S. singles in the last decade and collaborations with such megastars as Janet Jackson. The 14-track evolution also features cameos by U.S. radio darling and international phenomenon LUMIDEE, Swedish rap pioneer and certified hitmaster Timbuktu, and more.
With such an extraordinarily far-reaching global talent coming to New York for one night only on his U.S. Tour, you won’t want to miss Arash on Saturday, March 12th as he makes his way to The Space at Westbury- 250 Post Ave, Westbury, NY 11590!
