“Pheelz and Bnxn’s ‘Finesse’ is Utterly Cool and Breaking Through Globally.” – ROLLING STONE

“’Finesse’ is a carefree anthem, oozing with saucy one-liners and breezy melodies.” - BILLBOARD

Today, breakout Nigerian artist, songwriter, award-winning producer (Fire Boy DML, Davido, Olamide), and multi-instrumentalist Pheelz serves up two brand new mixes of his global banger ‘Finesse’, joining forces with French Montana and linking up with Bounty Killer on the Reggae Mix.

Listen to ‘Finesse’ [feat. French Montana] HERE and the ‘Finesse’ Reggae Mix [feat. Bounty Killer] HERE.

The tracks speak to his undeniable versatility. French pulls up with a highly quotable verse as his instantly recognisable flow takes hold. Meanwhile, Pheelz leans into island vibes with charisma and confidence on the Reggae Mix as Bounty Killer shines just as brightly. The original ‘Finesse’ remains a phenomenon, eclipsing over 230 million global streams and counting, 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 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's linked with US stars Usher, Diddy and Dr. Dre to name a few. He recently teamed-up with Grammy Nominated Afrobeats icon Davido for his previous 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 showstopping performance of ‘Electricity’ on The Eye, while UPROXX noted, “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. 

Pheelz is cementing his status as one of Nigeria’s most exciting crossover artists and delivers tracks that speak to all vibrations. Stay tuned for more new music and collaborations soon.
