Every once in a while, an artist appears who is destined to break the mould, LU KALA is one of them. The fiery-voiced songstress with signature vibrant orange hair to match, redefines what a pop star sounds and looks like.

At the age of three LU KALA’s family immigrated from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Canada; first living in Toronto’s Regent Park and later Ajax. Gifted with a talent for writing striking pop tracks and memorable hooks, LU has quickly emerged as a surefire artist to watch. 

With over 100 million streams, LU is a force. Finding success on TikTok and IG Reels, her many viral snippets include “Love Shit” which was highlighted by fellow songstress SZA, as well as “Pretty Girl Era,” currently clocking in at over 347,000 UGC videos on TikTok and millions of views across platforms. Peaking at #10 in Canada’s Top 40 and A/C radio charts, the track has served to raise LU’s profile, as well as her collaboration with Latto, “Lottery,” which saw LU make her debut in the Billboard Hot 100. 

The Toronto raised-LA based pop artist has kicked off 2024 with the stellar offering, “Nothing But Love.”

Sharing the story behind “Nothing But Love,” LU KALA expresses; “I wrote ‘Nothing But Love’ on Zoom with a friend from my bedroom, in the middle of the pandemic. The world had stopped and it was the very first time I sat with my feelings and processed the hurt I had never healed from. Moving on after a breakup is hard, especially when you still have love for that person. At least if I hated him, I could completely delete him out of my life and heart. But maturing for me, was realizing that even though things didn’t work out, and I believed him when he said he wanted this for the long haul, it’s still pure that at one point, there was love. I don’t wish him the worst, but instead, I still have nothing but love for him. ‘Nothing But Love’ is the most vulnerable song I’ve ever written, so much so that It took me two years to heal & finish writing it. I hope this song helps heal those in need. I’m okay singing it for the rest of my life if that means it provides love and healing to the heartbroken souls that are in need of nothing but love.”

LU breaks down her walls in her new tear-jerker of a ballad, connecting with hundreds of thousands of fans.
