The buzz about Faouzia just keeps growing.

The latest kudos for the Carman pop singer come from the website Refinery 29. On Wednesday, the Vice Media-owned property posted a list of 29 Canadian game-changers “that pushed back against the status quo in 2021.”

Faouzia made the list, joining the likes of Mary Simon, who in 2021 became Canada’s first Indigenous governor-general, Killing Eve actress Sandra Oh, R&B singer Savannah Ré, tennis sensation Leylah Fernandez, Olympic swimmer Penny Oleksiak and former Green Party leader Annamie Paul.

SUPPLIED Singer Faouzia was singled out this year as a Canadian game-changer.

In late November, Variety, the entertainment magazine, wrote that Faouzia is one of five buzz-worthy female artists to watch for in 2022, and that her debut album — expected to be released next year — could catch attention from a Grammy Awards jury.

Faouzia continued her march to stardom in 2021 with three singles, Don’t Tell Me I’m Pretty, Puppet and Hero, which reached No. 35 on Billboard’s Canadian adult-contemporary chart.
