After his iconic hook on Grammy-nominated 2016 song “Crew,” with artists GoldLink and ShyGlizzy, Brent Faiyaz continues to make his mark in R&B.
On his most recent album F— the World, the DMV native showcases his dreamy vocals on songs like “Been Away” and “Clouded.” While fans know him best for his mastery of masking devious lyrics with his angelic voice, he also has used his talents to touch on topics like ending gang culture with his song “Skyline.”
While Fayiaz is gaining popularity, the producer says he isn’t here to please anyone but himself.
“If I feel like making something, if I feel like saying something on the track, that’s what I am going to do — regardless of reaction,” Faiyaz told Rolling Stone. “It”s only by coincidence that people have been receiving it well.”
Listen to his most recent single, “Gravity,” featuring Tyler, The Creator.
