“Lolo presents: Playgirl.com,” but advertise it globally. Lolo Zoua launched a globe tour on Monday in support of her ethereal R&B record Playgirl. This will be her first tour since opening for Dua Lipa on the Future Nostalgia trek.
“I’m so excited to reunite with all my Lo-riders & Playgirls around the world and sing together next year!!!!” Zouaï wrote on Instagram. “Which city am I gonna see you at??”
Before coming to the United States and beginning her American leg in San Francisco, where she was reared, the French-Algerian singer will begin her tour in Europe, making stops in London, Paris, and Amsterdam. Before ending off her tour at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre in May, she will make stops at New York’s Irving Plaza and Seattle’s Neumos.
Last month, Zoua published her album Playgirl, which explores three personalities named Playgirl, Dreamgirl, and Partygirl that are based on distinct facets of her personality.
The Playgirl character, she said, shows up in the “songs that are creatively more daring and explore my fun, bold side.” Dreamgirl is all about “soft R&B songs that hit the heart, and feel the most nostalgic, sweet and gentle.” (Most of the album is Dreamgirl singing.) And Partygirl embodies the “darker, moodier songs that make you want to do bad things.”
“I need all of the sides to feel like a complete person,” she told Rolling Stone. “This album was much more crafted. I spent a lot of time learning about songwriting and getting better at it. I wanted the sound to reflect that, and I feel like it’s just an elevated version of myself.”
