keshi Releases New Single ‘SOMEBODY’

keshi has released “SOMEBODY,” the first single and music video from his upcoming, debut studio album via Island Records. “SOMEBODY” is a perfect equilibrium between lo-fi and pop, with a touch of 832, the track is powered by layers of keshi harmonies, but is also a new venture into edgier territories.  Co-produced with Elie Rizk, “SOMEBODY” comes a day before the one-year anniversary of keshi’s latest project, always.

“With ‘SOMEBODY’ and the upcoming album as a whole, I felt like it was time to shift the tone to something more well rounded,” keshi said. “It all exudes a newfound confidence that I think fans will be refreshed to hear and see in all the new videos.” 

Monikered as keshi (stylized), a phonetic play on his name, Casey Luong broke into the scene with his 2018 project, The Reaper, earning early recognition for shaping the lo-fi discourse that’s flanking pop music. Though the alternative artist from Houston, Texas first made waves in the lofi-hip hop/study beats community, his powerful songwriting and vocal tone quickly gained him a mainstream following. With over a billion listens worldwide, keshi has gone on to become a streaming force with his acclaimed trilogy of EPs – Skeletons (2019), Bandaids (2020), and Always (2020).

A self-reliant artist, keshi wrote, produced, engineered, and played all the instrumentation on the projects, which when pieced together, the names of the three EPs describes the cycle of a relationship. His initial success includes making his Billboard debut when skeletons hit No. 59 on the Top Album Sales chart and generating 1 million-plus streams on Spotify in 24 hours for “drunk,” a single off of always. Most recently, keshi appeared on the 88rising-curated Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: The Album for his song “War With Heaven.”
