TOBi on “Flowers” and their upcoming album: “This is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever done. The definition of unapologetic soul music. I wanted to tell a story of what it meant to be a man, to grow up and learn and deal with my vices. Protecting my peace, as I navigate life’s challenges. This song is a turning point in my mental journey. Addressing fears, seeking therapy, paying tribute to those who are alive…it’s a lot to break down into verses, but at the end of the day it feels so good to be alive and creating and I’m grateful for every moment of it.”
Recently, TOBi launched its Produced by Alex Goose simple and video “Before we panic” presenting mikky ekko(written for Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Drake), which was the prelude to their next album. The artistic visual was filmed and directed by Dom McLennon (Brockhampton) Y Jeremy Grier.
