Beyoncé’s songwriter set for Dubai residency

Nstasia takes the reigns at Q’s Bar & Lounge until September

She’s written songs for Beyoncé, Nicole Scherzinger, Usher and Kelly Clarkson – and now Nstasia is in Dubai as part of a residency at one of the city’s top live music venues.

Performing five nights a week at Q’s Bar & Lounge at the Palazzo Versace in Al Jaddaf (a highly commended live music venue at the Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards 2018), the American singer and songwriter is going to be in town until Saturday September 8, and she’s got some brilliant tunes ready to blow you away. After all, she’s not got Beyoncé and Usher on her list of credits for no reason.

Check out this tune, Parachute, produced by renowned, world-wide dubstep, electro house and trap DJ Skrillex:

When you include bands as varied as The Beatles and Rae Sremmurd among your influences, you know you’re going to get some smooth, inventive and original tunes, and we just can’t wait to check out Nstasia live while she’s here.

Here’s another of her collaborations with Skrillex, this time also with Vindata:

"This talented little lady has been one of the best-kept secrets in the industry, as a songwriter, for artists such as my lil siblings, Beyonce and Usher, but now it’s her turn to take the stage,” said legendary composer, producer and conductor Quincy Jones. “I couldn’t be more proud to welcome her to our stage at Q’s Bar & Lounge.”

Nstasia is performing three shows per night from Tuesday to Friday: 9pm-10pm, 10.30pm-11.30pm and midnight-1pm – and an hour earlier every Saturday (with shows at 8pm, 9.30pm and 11pm).
Dhs250 (minimum spend Tue-Wed); Dhs350 (minimum spend Thu-Sat). Tue-Sat 7pm-2am. Until Sep 8 2018. Palazzo Versace Dubai, Al Jaddaf (04 556 8865).
