Laila Releases Debut Song “Strangers at the Airport”
Jordanian-Canadian singer-songwriter Laila Kharouba, aka Laila released a solo debut song “Strangers at the Airport” on May 12, 2023.
She is known as one half of Canadian pop duo Your Paris. The new song is her solo debut single.
The track was written by Laila Kharouba and Jon Pike, produced by Jon Pike and Brandon Pero.
The song is a powerful reflection of her personal journey towards healing and self-discovery.
Laila said of the song, “Last year I saw my ex from afar, reading a book in the airport bar at LAX. It was a really weird and reflective moment for me. I told my producer Jon Pike about the experience, and he mentioned he'd always wanted to write a song called 'Strangers at the Airport'. So we wrote this one together!”
She continued, “The song is about grappling with the realization that someone who was once your everything is now just a stranger (in an airport). We drew a lot of inspiration from one of my favourite bands, The 1975, for the production and sonic landscape."
