PHABO Drops Smooth "Casamigos" Single

PHABO Drops Smooth "Casamigos" Single

Fully immersed in a renewed sense of self-assurance, ambition, and purpose as he gears up for his upcoming new full-length LP, Los Angeles R&B singer-songwriter PHABO delivers the effortlessly smooth and timely slow jam “Casamigos” available to stream now on all digital platforms listen below.

 Written by PHABO and co-produced by multiple GRAMMY Award-winning hitmaker Eric Hudson (Whitney Houston, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey) with Phillip C. Lewis (Mary J. Blige, H.E.R., Doja Cat) and Ezzra (John Legend, Ant Clemons, Keyshia Cole), “Casamigos” marks another standout ballad from the naturally gifted multi-dimensional artist at his most comfortable. The track follows on from his latest offerings this year including the official studio version of “Scorpio Moon” – first premiered on COLORS – and the sun-soaked “Out of Touch” featuring UK R&B artist ShaΓ© Universe

Speaking on the inspiration behind his new single, PHABO shares, “When I wrote ‘Casamigos’, it was a song meant to embody the emotion of a bitter-sweet companionship. It's about 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.”

PHABO continues to stake his claim as one of today’s most sought after collaborators in contemporary R&B and already in 2023 he’s collaborated with fast rising artists Jordan Hawkins (“Timeless”), Amaria (“Damaged”), Zay Johnny (“Poed Up”), and Modha (“Lions & Cowards”). He’s also established himself as a driving force in the songwriting scene having penned hits for the likes of Kehlani, Kyle Dion, and Jahkoy.

Hailed as an “indie luminary” and “R&B's new North Star” (Noisey/Vice), the singer-songwriter PHABO is modernizing the best parts of what we know as R&B. In July 2021, the Los Angeles-based artist issued his debut album, Soulquarius, via the influential radio show and indie record label Soulection Records known for their work championing and ushering in the new generation of R&B talent.

Laced with notable guest appearances from Alex Vaughn, Destin Conrad, Rexx Life Raj and Mntra set against inimitable production work by LosHendrix (SZA, Giveon, Childish Gambino) and Louie Lastic (Goldlink, Masego, Kali Uchis), PHABO bares his soul on Soulquarius as he sings of love, lust, musings, heartbreak, and passion. The record is an intoxicating experience that captures a West Coast ethos harking back to the pioneers of classic soul and R&B from artists like D'Angelo, Erykah Badu, and Jahiem drawing influences from the rotating collective of experimental Black music artists in the late 90's and early 00's while also incorporating sounds from contemporary R&B. In support of the record, he embarked on his first ever 15-date headlining tour, which was supported by LAYA and sold out shows in key markets including DC, Toronto, New York City, Atlanta, LA and London.

Listen to PHABO’s new single “Casamigos” out now and stay tuned for much more to come this year.
