It’s no secret to anyone who frequents Tik Tok that quite honestly Canadian newcomer powfu has had one of the biggest songs of the year so far with “death bed”, a song that’s amassed over 300M streams on Spotify alone thus far. It led to him securing a big deal with Columbia Records and making it possible for him to carve out a big career for himself that goes way beyond that song and the Internet. One of those next steps is pairing himself with one of the industry’s most highly touted new names Mishaal, a native of Saudi Arabia who’s experience at NYU’s Tisch Clive Davis Program along with massive, home and global following are setting him up in prime position as one of the next artists with a big chance to really take things over. It’s that global appeal along with his amazing music and bedroom pop sensibilities that have made Mishaal such a hot prospect and it’s going to be real fun to see how his 2020 rollout really lays itself on the table.
The start of that is this gorgeously produced pop tune “Friends”, that pairs the two rising stars together. The Encore assisted tune is just such an inescapable little ditty, it’s not reinventing the wheel but man is this song catchy. There’s sure to be an influx of music on the way in the near future from the Saudi Arabian native but this song is surely to keep me satiated for a bit. Take a listen below.
