Afrobeat artiste and award-winning producer, Pheelz has teamed up with international stars, French Montana and Bounty Killer for two brand new mixes of his global hit song, Finesse.
On Finesse, French pulls up with a highly quotable verse as his instantly recognizable flow takes hold. Meanwhile, Pheelz confidently leans into island vibes on the Reggae Mix as Bounty Killer shines just as brightly.
The original Finesse which features BNXN fka Buju remains a phenomenon, eclipsing over 230 million global streams, with more than 57 million YouTube views on the music video. The single, which spent 20 weeks on the official UK Afrobeats Chart, peaking at #1, was included in the then President of the United States, Barack Obama’s 2022 Summer Playlist and features on the brand-new FIFA 23 soundtrack.
Pheelz has only accelerated his meteoric rise in 2022. He has linked with global stars Usher, Diddy and Dr Dre. In August, he enlisted Grammy Nominated Afrobeats icon Davido for his previous hit single Electricity. This blockbuster collaboration has reeled in over 50 million global streams and 15 million YouTube views on the music video. He also delivered a show-stopping performance of Electricity on an episode of ‘The Eye’, while UPROXX says, “his smooth live vocals really shine.” OkayAfrica appropriately summed it up as “electrifying” and praised the “memorable tune, memorable lyrics, and a catchy tempo.”
2022 has been an exciting year for Pheelz, who has made the most of every opportunity that has come his way since the massive success of Finesse, which established him as one of his home country’s most gifted producers and songwriters, as well as an international star on the rise. Earlier this year, he performed a dazzling set at Essence Fest’s ‘Afrobeats After Dark party’ in New Orleans 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’.
