Brent Faiyaz – Poison

Combining warm soft vocals, introspective lyrics and arrangements surrounded by an elegant timeless allure, Maryland crooner Brent Faiyaz is emerging as one of the most promising nu-soul acts of the scene. His latest single Poison, as the title suggests, is an intoxicating r’n’b ballad built upon a carpet of intriguing beats realized by producer Ben Free. Brent is only 20 year-old and the confidence he’s showing track after track is the clear indication of a pure talent.

Speaking about the track, he states: “We just got back to Hollywood from a late session & Ben came to me with the rough idea of a song called ‘poison’ & played it like it was nothing special. After the 3rd line i knew i had to sing that. I was waiting for that record. It was about a girl that was no good for him. We sat down, wrote it out around his story & built it like a movie.I would’ve never thought of that. It challenged my writing & made me work outside of my comfort zone vocally & conceptually.

Together with Invite Me, Poison will be included on Brent Faiyaz‘s upcoming Side A: AM Paradox EP, which will be released on September 19th.
