Pheelz Signs to Warner Records After the Viral Success of ‘Finesse’

Warner Music has signed a worldwide deal with Pheelz. The move comes after the popular Nigerian record producer-turned-artiste’s latest single, “Finesse,” received worldwide recognition and broke into notable charts.

His BNXN-featured single “Finesse,” which has over 14 million Spotify streams, is a carefree anthem brimming with saucy one-liners and breezy melodies. What began as a “training session” with his new producer on Ableton Live—a beat-making program—became a life-changing moment for Pheelz, who witnessed the record explode after casually posting a clip from his studio on TikTok. This week, “Finesse” is No. 5 on Billboard’s Afrobeats Songs chart in the United States.

Speaking to Billboard, Pheelz said he is eyeing a pop superstar to take his single to the next level. “I know she’s a rapper, but I think Cardi B can do something amazing on “Finesse,” he tells Billboard. “I think Ye as well—definitely Ye. If I get Ye on “Finesse,” I’m going to lose my mind. Cardi, Ye — and the third one would be between Rihanna and Drake. “

He added that, “Having my music get that kind of attention and opening that kind of door for me is a blessing. I still have whiplash. To be honest, I haven’t been able to process everything. It’s just been back-to-back work and back-to-back shows and all that. I just feel very grateful and very blessed to be honest. “

“What was so compelling about Pheelz when we first met was his passion and affection for music and the Web3 space. He’s creating his own NFTs and graphic art, which aided in the launch and popularity of “Finesse,” says Steve Carless, president of A&R (Black Music) at Warner Records. “He has had an incredible connection to the cultural and creative networks around the world as an established figure for so many years. Our focus is really about staying true to the diaspora and lifting this song from the ground as our season progresses. “
