Who is Jahan Yousaf?

Jahan Yousaf is an American electronic dance music producer, who achieved stardom through the EDM music group Krewella, consisting of Jahan and her sister Yasmine Yousaf. The duo has released two studio albums, including “Get Wet” in 2013.

Early Life, Parents, and Education

Jahan Yousaf was born on 27 August 1989 under the Virgo zodiac sign, in Houston, Texas USA. She is a daughter of a Pakistani father, Sohail Yousaf, a real estate agent, and a Lithuanian mother, Neda, and has two sisters, Aisha and Yasmine Yousaf. Although born in Houston, she grew up in Chicago, Illinois, where she went to Glenbrook North High School. She hasn’t attended any college, as she’s been focused on her music career.

Career Beginnings

Jahan and Yasmine attended the same high school where they met Kristopher Trindl, and their mutual interest in electro house and dubstep brought them together to form the group Krewella. They tattooed ‘6-8-10’ as a remembrance to 8 June 2010 when they agreed to put a halt to everything else, and focus on the music career.

In December 2011 they signed a contract with Monstercat, and released their first single “Killin’ It”, after which the band was the subject of several promotional campaigns, and even partnered with several EDM YouTube promotional channels. Their debut extended play (EP), “Play Hard”, came out in June 2012, and the single “Alive”, topped the US Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart, while it also reached into the US Billboard Hot 100.

Rise to Prominence

Gradually, Krewella’s and Jahan’s popularity both increased, and they started headlining various EDM festivals around the world, including at the Ultra Music Festival, Stereosonic, Sunburn Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Paradiso festival among others.

The group continued to perform, and after a successful show at the Ultra Music Festival in 2013, Billboard announced that they would become a huge deal. Their debut album “Get Wet” followed, reaching No. 8 on the US Billboard 200 chart, while it topped the US Dance chart.

Trindl’s Departure and New Music

Trouble started brewing in September 2014, when Kristopher Trindl left the group and filed a lawsuit against the sisters for $5 million, stating that he was thrown out of the band without a reason.

However, Jahan and Yasmine contested that Trindl had problems with drug and alcohol abuse and ultimately resigned from the band on his own. The lawsuit was settled out of court, but there aren’t additional details.

Jahan and Yasmine continued as a duo, releasing the next song “Say Goodbye” in November the same year, in reflection of the loss of a member and friend, and his lawsuit against them. Their next song “Somewhere to Run” became a complete hit, launched them to greater stardom, and earned them a spot on the single “Love Song to the Earth”, next to such greats as Paul McCartney, Sean Paul, Leona Lewis, Jon Bon Jovi, Nicole Scherzinger, and many others.

The EP “Ammunition” was their next release, reaching No. 2 on the US Dance chart, and spawning such hits as “Beggars”, “Broken Record” and “Ammunition”, among others.

Recent Projects

They are constantly working on new music, and in 2017 they partnered with high energy dance fitness program Zumba, and the song “I Got This” was released as a part of the “STRONG” program, a support for thigh energy workouts. They continued to work with Zumba, eventually performing a Zumba fitness concert, during which they played songs while instructors and those in attendance performed dance workouts. The EP “New World” followed in June 2017, and with tours and new songs, Krewella started working on the new album “Zer0”, released on 31 January 2020 through their own label Mixed Kids Records, and reaching No. 23 on the US Dance chart.
