Drawing inspiration from the likes of Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson, 20 year-old singer-songwriter Bazzi grew up in Michigan and began performing at a young age. After moving to Los Angeles in 2014 to pursue his music career, the rising R&B and pop star started sharing his songs online and released his debut single 'Alone' in 2016.
His major breakthrough came earlier this year when his infectious single 'Mine' became a global sensation. To date the track has gained over 335 million streams on Spotify, over 84 million views on YouTube and was included in Taylor Swift's 'Songs Taylor Loves' playlist! When asked about the success of the 2 minute 14 second track, Bazzi told Billboard "I think it almost forces the listener to hear the whole thing. I wanted people to really dissect what I was saying in those two minutes rather than giving them a little too much. I definitely think there’s something special and revolutionary about that.”
'Mine' is taken from Bazzi's debut album 'COSMIC' which dropped in April this year. Give it a listen below 👇
Bazzi will be supporting Justin Timberlake on his Man Of The Woods Tour across Europe this summer! Catch him in Glasgow & London this month and in Birmingham & Manchester next month - grab your tickets before it's too late!
