Last week R&B singer-songwriter Fousheé released a video for one of her most popular tracks. The video for “clap for him” featuring Lil Yatchy is directed by Zhamak Fullad and has a retro laidback vibe.
The song itself is a bop as well. Fousheé’s soft and angelic voice carries the rhythm throughout the song and Yatchy does his thing when his verse is up. “Clap for him” is featured on Fousheé’s most recent project time machine along with “deep end” and “my slime .”
Her debut was praised for Fousheé’s effortless switching between guitar-based soul, alt-pop, and R&B. With her whispery, enticing flow, she is making her lane in music.
The young star looks to be blazing a trail with her talent and is making history already. Her single “deep end” currently has over 350 million streams worldwide and landed in the Top 10 at Alternative Radio.
This feat marked Fousheé as the first black female artist to hit the top 10 in 32 years. The last artist to achieve this status was Tracey Chapman in 1989 with “Crossroads.
Fousheé Is Not Another Cliché
Born and raised in New Jersey, genre-bending singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Fousheé is currently one of the artists to watch in 2021.
In 2019, after living in NYC and experiencing the music scene there, she set her sights on LA where she was embraced by the music community of creators and began to pursue her dream, honing her craft and learning to play the guitar. Willing to try new things to have her voice heard, she accepted an invitation from Splice to create a vocal sample pack.
Fast forward to 2020, and Fousheé went viral with her hook from her Splice Sample Pack. It began being streamed by millions as the basis for Sleepy Hallow’s track “Deep End (Freestyle).
The artist has only been releasing music for about a year and a half, but she is well on her way to stardom.
