Pop singer and Mt. Lebanon native Daya — known locally as Grace Tandon — has her first album coming out Oct. 7.

The album takes the name of the lead single, “Sit Still, Look Pretty.” The 17-year-old released the hit song in June and it has been climbing the charts every since. It currently sits at No. 10 on the iTunes top songs and No. 29 on Billboard's Hot 100. “Sit Still, Look Pretty” was named one of the “songs of summer” by Entertainment Weekly and has more than 80 million streams on Spotify.

A video for the song will debut Sept. 9 on MTV. The album will be available for pre-order on Sept. 16.

The breakout star will be in Pittsburgh on Sept. 23 for the Thrival Festival at the Carrie Furnace site in Rankin. Tickets for that show, which is headlined by The Chainsmokers, are on sale at thrivalfestival.com for $50 for a single day or $59 for Sept. 23 and 24.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
