Rising Nigerian artist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Pheelz r
eturns with the melodic new single “Stand By You.” Listen HERE via Warner Records. Soulful and rhythmic, the romantic track is atmospheric and serves good vibes. The budding hitmaker’s Pheelz Good EP drops February 9. Pre-save HERE.
Grounded by a mellow rhythm, the laidback single casts a light, luxuriating spell. And Pheelz seals the deal with his dreamy, whispered lyrics: “I put nothing above you,” he croons. “I’m so proud to call you my boo.” Ultimately, he promises fidelity: “I will stand by you.” The confident, understated number has all the trappings of a night spent between lovers, whispering sweet nothings until dawn.
The stirring, Afrobeats anthem is the latest single from Pheelz forthcoming Pheelz Good EP, which is shaping up to be a must-hear. Few artists are as thoroughly primed for success in 2023 as Pheelz. The 28-year-old has made the most of every opportunity that has come his way since the breakout virality of “Finesse,” which established him as one of Nigeria’s most gifted producers and songwriters, as well as an international star on the rise.
Pheelz was recently named “Artist To Watch” in 2023 by Pandora and Amazon music. Last year he performed a spellbinding set at Essence Fest’s Afrobeats After Dark and made his US television debut with a performance of “Finesse” on NBC’s Late Show with Seth Meyers. Watch it HERE. Pheelz was also the first Afrobeats Artist to Perform at the BET Awards Pre-Show, where he earned a 2022 nomination for Best New International Act.
Now, with “Stand By You,” Pheelz is entering the new year with gusto, poised to become Afrobeats next global star!
