Her latest feat? Her song, On Ghost Ridge is one of the 91 songs longlisted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the Best Original Song category at next year’s Oscars.
Written by Nicholas Pike, the song is featured in the movie 100 Years: One Woman’s Fight For Justice.
Yuna has also recently been named the most-played Malaysian artistes on streaming service Spotify, followed by Projector Band, Sufian Suhaimi, Akim And The Majistret and SonaOne.
Her third international album, Chapters, was released in May and featured the hit single, Crush, a duet with Usher. The song went as high as No. 3on the Billboard Adult R&B charts.
The shortlist will be announced on Jan 24. The Academy Awards will be held on Feb 26.
