Nigerian producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Pheelz kicks off 2023 with a rousing new EP, Pheelz Good.
The star-studded release, which features Davido and BNXN, boasts infectious Afrobeats bangers as well as songs rooted in melodic R&B — all of which showcase the rising star’s dazzling versatility and blinding future.
The EP begins with ‘Ballin’ a sultry track with laidback beats, organ and sexy guitar arrangements. Also included is the Davido-assisted hit ‘Electricity’, a buoyant crowd-pleaser complete with enchanting instrumentation and harmonies. Another EP highlight is ‘Pablo Escobar’, a soulful creation that casts a bold, atmospheric spell. Each entry in the sprawling release is a musical microcosm filled with polished flourishes and silky-smooth hooks.
A perfect example of Pheelz’ experimental approach is ‘Pheelz Like Summer’, a low-key dance floor anthem featuring a saxophone and a hypnotizing, serene rhythm. “You know, I will never find another lover, since I got you in my life, babe it feels like paradise,” he laments. Other tracks include ‘Stand by You’, ‘Emi Laye Mi’, ‘Ewelle’ and his huge, global hit ‘Finesse’ featuring BNXN. The single remains a phenomenon, eclipsing over 230 million global streams and counting, with more than 57 million views on YouTube.
Pheelz Good is a celebration of the newcomer’s Nigerian roots and a summation of his current musical sensibilities.
