Rising Artist Yumi Releases Latest Single “Ghosted”

Fed up with being “Ghosted,” YUMI flips her emotion into a stylish anthem of resilience. The soul-bearing single sees the emerging young pop artist’s vocals shine over a shimmering production.

“Ghosted is about being overly into someone who gives you just enough of them to want to stay around, but at the end of the day doesn’t really care enough about you to prioritize you,” states YUMI. “It is a vulnerable and painful experience and I wanted to capture that emotion in a song.”
“Ghosted” follows YUMI’s recent releases “Find You,” “Camouflage,” and an acoustic cover of Arlissa’s “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie.” In March, her song “Camouflage” was chosen as Forever 21’s International Women’s Daycampaign theme song, reflecting the power of YUMI’s inspirational lyrics. Since signing to Dim Mak in 2018, YUMI has racked up millions of streams and gained fans worldwide through empowering songs and a vigorous dedication to femininity and body positivity.
