Following on from her debut single Deep End which came out last summer, Fousheé has just dropped the super empowering video for her next release Single af.
With February usually focused around love and relationships, this upbeat bop acts as a welcome reminder to embrace self-love. This track and accompanying video celebrates female empowerment in the most wonderful celebratory way with friends. Directed by Fousheé and co-directed by frequent collaborator Zach Sulak the video also features a short skit by Teezo Touchdown, acting as a suitor attempting to get her attention.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Fousheé grew up surrounded by music, with her mother (who hails from Jamaica) getting her started as a drummer in female reggae band PEP, before moving to America. Being exposed to a wide range of sounds from her mother’s collection, she is inspired by the likes of Bob Marley, Toni Braxton and Etta James. This influence extending to artists who she has been drawn to over the years such as Frank Ocean.
At just age six, Fousheé wrote her first song and began performing in different girl groups founded with childhood friends. Despite always wanting to follow a professional career in music, she followed the usual steps a teenager goes through. Enrolling in college, working at local cafés and on her music on the side. Following on from a serious car accident her mother was involved in, she realised just how important her dreams were. Creating a turning point.
In 2020, Fousheé featured on Sleepy Hallow’s viral track Deep End (Freestyle). Her highly captivating and dreamy vocals played influence for her to reveal her identity as the vocalist in a TikTok video that has reached nearly six million views. This led to her releasing her own version, accompanied by visuals acting as an ode to Blaxploitation films from the 70’s. With a natural creative flare, this is just the beginning for Fousheé.
