Nilüfer Yanya Releases New Video for “Baby Blu”

Nilüfer Yanya has shared the brilliant video for her song “Baby Blu” , the latest single from her critically acclaimed debut record Miss Universe. Shot in Tokyo over New Years 2019, the video for “Baby Blu” is something of a family affair, starring Yanya, her sisters Molly and Elif, and brother Cemil.



In July, Yanya will head back to the U.S. for her first U.S. headlining tour, including a stop at NYC’s Music Hall Of Williamsburg – upgraded having instantly sold-out Rough Trade NYC the day tickets first went on sale – on July 23. Tickets for all U.S. dates are available HERE .
Already proclaimed Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ , the instantly infectious ‘Baby Blu’ is a stand out track amongst an album packed with stellar singles and powerful songwriting. Explaining the video shoot, Yanya said : “We shot the video in Tokyo over New Years – me and my sisters went to visit my brother who is studying there for a year. My sister Molly had the idea for theming the video around street racing cars, which proved to be quite difficult to track down as it’s highly illegal in Japan. We managed to find a few car shows and garages, got some fast rides and had lots of fun. For me this video is really about us as siblings, refusing to let go of each other and our childhood.”
