MUSIC: Nigerian music star Pheelz releases new EP Pheelz Good (Triibe Tape) | 4 -track EP features brand new collab with Olamide Inbox



Showing no signs of stopping or slowing down after garnering huge international success over the past couple of years, including the recent release of his last single ‘JELO’ (featuring Young Jonn), the award-winning, highly-celebrated Nigerian music star, producer and multi-instrumentalist Pheelz today releases his brand new project – the 4-track EP Pheelz Good (Triibe Tape) (out now via Warner Records).

Underpinned by Pheelz’ signature, world class production which mixes sunny Afropop with smooth R&B and energetic Hip-Hop along with his velvety vocals to create stellar, earworm melodies, the EP opens with the addictive, feel-good future anthem ‘JOY’ which features Afrobeats legend Olamide. Speaking on the new track, Pheelz says ‘’Joy’ is special song to me because Olamide and I have developed this really healthy musical brotherhood.’ and adds “we've been friends and collaborators for years. In recent times, we haven’t gotten into the studio because life has created different paths for us. ‘Joy’ is just us being back in the studio just like old times. We wanted to create a positive record for everyone. Something that gives hope to the hopeless.”

Positivity is a strong theme that runs through the rest of the EP, which also includes the previously unheard ‘Riddim & Blues’, his last single ‘JELO’featuring fellow Afrobeats sensation and producer Young Jonn – which has gone on to pull in 6.6 million streams AND 1.7 million YouTube views since its release – and a brand new Afro House remix of the song from the Netherlands based DJ/producer Henry X & Nigerian producer Lexyz.

Speaking on the uplifting new EP Pheelz says:

“Triibe Tape is a project for the Triibe from the Triibe leader. After the release, I will be traveling around the world to connect with fans. So, It’s a project for us to fellowship with on stage. Listeners will find that there are different emotions across the project, and positive vibrations all the way. No negative vibe. No negative thoughts. It’s all love and light.”

Earlier this year, Pheelz released the fan favourite single ‘YOLO’ which reeled in over 4 million streams and almost 2 million YouTube views on the music video. It arrived on the heels of Pheelz' acclaimed 2023 EP, Pheelz Good. The critically acclaimed project has amassed more than 700 million global streams, with the brilliant 8-song set boasting features from Davido (‘Electricity’) and BNXN (‘Finesse’) and deftly blends Afrobeats bangers with songs rooted in melodic R&B and Pop — all of which showcase his dazzling versatility and blinding future. 

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 single remains a phenomenon, eclipsing over 300 million global streams and counting, with more than 93 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, features on the FIFA 23 soundtrack and was named as one of the Best Songs of last year by Rolling Stone and TIME.

Pheelz was named “Artist To Watch” in 2023 by Pandora and Amazon Music. After ‘Finesse catapulted him on to the global stage, he built on the buzz with a dazzling set at Essence Fest’s Afrobeats After Dark party in New Orleans and made his US television debut with a performance on NBC’s Late Show with Seth Meyers (watch it HERE). Pheelz was the first Afrobeats artist to Perform at the BET Awards Pre-Show, where he earned a 2022 nomination for Best New International Act. He was also one of the most nominated talents as both an artist and producer at this year’s The Headies Awards.

Now, with the release of Pheelz Good (Triibe Tape), Pheelz is ending the year with gusto and staking his claim as one of Afropop’s biggest global stars.
