Yesterday (October 6), Pimienta took to Twitter to talk about the album release and recounted the time she spoke with Toronto Life about being a style icon. For the corresponding photoshoot, Pimienta posed inside Toronto's favourite and most meme-worthy shopping centre, Dufferin Mall — inside the No Frills, no less — to show off her attire.
In her Twitter post this weekend, Pimienta mentioned that she'd like to throw her Miss Colombia release party in the very same mall, which she called "the happiest place on earth."
Today, luck would have it that Pimienta caught the attention of No Frills with her tweet. No Frills has since responded to the artist, in an exchange that can be seen below.
When @torontolife asked me to pick my favourite place in the city to take photo for "best dressed" - I picked the no frills at @DufferinMall because to me, the Dufferin mall is the happiest place on earth. Who do I have to talk to in order to throw my album release party there? pic.twitter.com/vsFwALmkAd— Lido Pimienta (@LidoPimienta) October 6, 2019

THE PLOT KEEPS THICKENING— Lido Pimienta (@LidoPimienta) October 7, 2019
THE SAGA CONTINUES
YOU DONT EVEN UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH THIS WOULD MEAN TO ME, TO US AS DUFFERIN MALL, DUFFERIN PARK AND DUFFERIN NO FRILLS GO-ERS! @nofrillsCA pic.twitter.com/fKHUxNk0Us
While we wait on further information, we have our fingers crossed for Pimienta, the shoppers of Dufferin Mall and all Torontonians that No Frills and Pimienta can strike a deal for the launch of Miss Colombia.
Although this may be the first No Frills album launch party in history, it's certainly not Toronto's first mall party. In January 2016, Long Winter hosted its monthly party in Galleria Mall just up the street from Dufferin Mall. The party featured performances from New Fries, Teen Anger, the Highest Order, VCR, S.H.I.T. and more.
Miss Colombia marks Pimienta's follow up to 2016's Polaris-winning La Papessa.
