In a segment that we call the q Thursday Headliner, we invite a band or artist we think you need to hear to kick off the show with a live performance. This week, Montreal hip-hop artist Hua Li drops by the studio alongside Alexander Thibault to perform a few new songs from her debut album, Dynasty, which is out everywhere. She's on tour now.
