Nigerian musician Pheelz releases ‘Stand By You’, a prelude to his impending debut EP “Pheelz Good”.
Following the huge international success he garnered last year with his hit singles ‘Ballin’, ‘Electricity’ ft Davido and his global smash ‘Finesse’ ft BNXN, the Nigerian music artist, songwriter award-winning producer and multi-instrumentalist returns with his brand new single and future smash hit ‘Stand By You’.
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 sings. “I’m so proud to call you my boo.” Ultimately, he promises loyalty: “I will stand by you.” The confident, understated number has all the trappings of a night spent between lovers, pouring their hearts out until dawn.
The stirring, Afropop anthem is the latest single from Pheelz’s forthcoming Pheelz Good EP, which is released on February 9th and shaping up to be a must-hear. Few artists are as thoroughly primed for success in 2023 as Pheelz. The stand-out talent 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.
The musician 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. 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. 2022 also saw him receive his first MOBO Awards nomination for African Act of the Year.
