Rising US R&B talent PHABO delivers silky textures across his latest cut ‘Casamigos’ – taken from his hotly anticipated studio album dropping soon.
Rapidly becoming one of the most recognisable voices emerging across the R&B landscape, multi-faceted artist and creative PHABO continues his exploration for true love with ‘Casamigos’. Set across hazy synths and bright percussion, the San Diego, CA native’s sun-kissed cadence shines bright through sultry silhouettes.
Moving between smooth Spanish licks and deep-rooted wordplay, PHABO breaks down the complications of a fading love affair, one that propels him toward self-reflection and reconciliation while battling a burning desire for love and lust. With sleek production credits from Grammy Award-Winning hitmaker Eric Hudson (Whitney Houston, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey), Phillip C. Lewis (H.E.R, Doja Cat) and Ezzra (John Legend, Keyshia Cole), ‘Casamigos’ marks another standout ballad from a naturally gifted artist at his most comfortable and potent.
Speaking on ‘Casamigos’, PHABO mentions:
“When I wrote ‘Casamigos’, it was a song meant to embody the emotion of a bitter-sweet companionship. Losing something you’re not sure is worth chasing. Then taking on this false sense of control once reacquired, knowing that time and experiences have transpired between both you and your old flame. ‘Casamigos’ is every bad decision’s accountability partner.”
Gaining breakout status after the release of his 2021 debut album Soulquarius (via leading culture label Soulection), PHABO has gone on to work with some of the most innovative talents in the US right now including Duckwrth, Alex Vaughn, Eric Bellinger, Destin Conrad, and Rexx Life Raj. His innate flair for delivering rich, dream-like sounds has quickly amassed over 18M streams on Spotify alone – while collecting 750K dedicated monthly listeners.
Hot on the heels of his cult COLORSXSTUDIOS performance of ‘SCORPIO MOON’ last year, PHABO has dropped the stunning ‘Out Of Touch’, tapping London star Shaé Universe – racing to over 500K streams and critical attention across the spectrum from WONDERLAND to ROLLING STONE to CLASH.
PHABO continues to effortlessly bridge the gap between international waters – announcing himself as one of the most important new names crashing into UK consciousness.
‘Casamigos’ is available now via all major platforms.
