WAFIA SHARES 83 DAYS VIDEO FT. CO-WRITER BEN ABRAHAM
Rising vocalist and songwriter Wafia premieres the video for new single '83 Days' today, featuring a live performance of the track alongside co-writer Ben Abraham (Kesha’s 'Praying'). Watch it below. It is also available for free download here.
“Being able to sing these songs with my co-writer, longtime collaborator and friend, Ben Abraham, was really special for me,” says Wafia. “He’s a big part of my project and the conceptualisation of these songs so it’s super important to me that we can strip these songs back and sing them the way we wrote them.”
The new song, produced by Toro (Tory Lanez, Cashmere Cat, Kehlani), is the first from her forthcoming EP set for release via Future Classic later this year. '83 Days' has been streamed more than 1.2 million times to date, receiving critical acclaim online and extensive plays across tastemaker radio stations worldwide. Wafia also debuted the track live in May to sold-out crowds in New York and Los Angeles.
'83 Days' follows last year’s collaborative (m)edian EP with Future Classic label mate Ta-ku and the duo’s subsequent world tour. Watch them perform for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert here.
