Everything You Need to Know About 'Her' Singer-Songwriter Daya

We've been big supporters of Daya ever since we first fell in love with her voice on The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down," and all of this time later, the 23-year-old singer-songwriter is still surprising us with her bold songwriting and powerful vocals.

Today, the Grammy Award-winning artist dropped her new stunning track, "Her." Alongside June's "Love You When You're Gone," the track makes it clear that Daya truly is back and better than ever. Both will feature on her upcoming EP, dropping later this year, showing off a whole new side to the artist as she confronts the harsher realities of the past and learns to move past romanticizing them. We can't wait to hear all of the new music she has in store for us, and here's everything we learned about her as our latest Woman Crush Wednesday.
