Fousheé – “single af” performance

Vevo DSCVR is an annual series that focuses on the development of emerging artists who are shaping the future of music. One of these artists is Fousheé. So far, she has solidified her artistic essence as a fierce advocate for Black female independence and empowerment. Her “single af” single contains a relatable narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of  SZA, Mereba, Noname, and Sevdaliza. The likable tune also possesses laidback instrumentation flavored with contemporary R&B and indie-soul elements. Check out Fousheé’s performance video for her “sing about love” single to fully understand why Vevo included her in their DSCVR Artists to Watch program.

Fousheé grew up with music in the forefront her entire life. Her mother, who hails from Jamaica, got her start in music as the drummer for a female reggae band named PEP. Eventually, her mom moved to America and started a family. During her early childhood, Fousheé was exposed to a variety of different sounds. She grew up listening to her mother’s record collection including Bob Marley, Toni Braxton, and Etta James. Fousheé counts them as influences along with artists she personally gravitated to over the years like Frank Ocean.

The artist-to-watch wrote her first song at the age of six. Later, she performed with different girl groups created with childhood friends throughout her formative years. Later, she found herself following in the normal footsteps of a teenager. She enrolled in college, while still working on music and performing at local cafés on the side. When she and her mom were involved in a serious car accident, she dropped out of school to help her mom recover from injuries. Also, she realized how important her dreams were during that time.

After living in NYC and experiencing its music scene, Fousheé set her sights on LA, honing her craft in a community of creators that embraced her. In 2020, her voice was streamed by millions as the hook on Sleepy Hallow’s viral track, entitled, “Deep End (Freestyle).” The song eventually led Fousheé to reveal her identity in a TikTok video that racked up over six million views. In July (2021), she released her own version of “deep end,” along with an accompanying visual which is an ode to Blaxploitation films from the ‘70s. The Zach Sulak-directed music video finds a battle-tested Fousheé doing battle with a creepy stalker.

Fousheé’s “Deep End” has almost certainly graced the eardrums of frequent TikTok visitors. But the story behind the song’s prevalence is a little more complicated than the alt-soul singer cashing in on viral fame. Initially, Brooklyn-rapper Sleepy Hallow sampled her airy hook – “I’m about to go off the deep end” – without giving credit to this former contestant on The Voice. Frustratingly for Fousheé, that version blew up. Undeterred, she fought to make the best of the situation, working with TikTok to eventually get her name on Sleepy Hollow’s song. The video for “Deep End” embraces the track’s history.

“It’s about fighting to get what’s due because it isn’t always going to be handed to you.” – Fousheé stated
