A Malaysian girl band, DOLLA has recently took over the iconic Times Square billboard in New York City and put Malaysia’s name on the international stage again!
The four-member band which consists of Sabronzo, Tabby, Angel, and Syasya was chosen to represent Malaysian singers in the Spotify’s EQUAL Singapore and Malaysia campaign, where the global programme aims to foster and nurture equality for women in audio by highlighting female artistes around the world.
“There are currently 35 local EQUAL playlists covering artists from over 50 countries, with Dolla being on the cover as a representative from EQUAL Malaysia and Singapore’s playlists.” the press release by Universal Music Malaysia said.
DOLLA is the 3rd Malaysian act to be featured on the billboard in Times Square after soloists Yuna and Layla Sania.
The girl group was formed back in 2019 after an audition and they have debuted with their hit single “Dolla Makes You Wanna”. In 2020, they released an English version of their second single “Watch Me Glow”.
“Impikan (Dolla’s second Malay-language single) had a million views on YouTube in less than two weeks and gained widespread media attention locally and internationally as well within the Southeast Asia region and Korea,” Universal Music Malaysia said.
According to The Star, one of its members, Sabronzo said “Words just cannot express how we feel right now. This is such a huge honour for a newly formed vocal group like us and we hope we can continue to live up to the expectations of our fans.”
After fans found out about DOLLA’s appearance on the billboard, fans celebrated on social media by posting photos of DOLLA displayed on the billboard in Times Square.
Fans even made the hashtag #DollaMakeMalaysiaProud to be trending on Malaysia’s Twitter.
A netizen even share a photo of DOLLA in their early days and them on the billboard, at the same time congratulating them for their achievement.
Meanwhile, we would like to extend our hearty congratulations to our Malaysian girl band for their amazing achievement. We hope that DOLLA will continue to grow even more from here on and stand on top of the world!
