“Chapters” is Yuna’s fifth album which includes collaborations with several international performers like Usher, DJ Premier and Jhene Aiko.
Some of the hits from the album include “Crush”, “Places to Go” and “Lanes”.
Yuna has also submitted her album “Chapters” to the Grammy’s under the categories of Best New Artiste and Best Urban Contemporary Album, hoping that she will get a nomination in the prestigious awards ceremony next year.
“The goal is to get nominated; it is very tough because I will have to score votes from the voting members of the Recording Academy, not the public. Either way, I’m excited and praying for the best,” Yuna said as quoted by New Straits Times.
