TOBi on “Flowers” and his next album: “It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve done. The definition of shameless soul music. I wanted to tell a story about what it meant to be a man, to grow, to learn, and to face my vices. Protect my peace, while navigating life’s challenges. This song is a turning point in my mental journey. Addressing fears, seeking therapy, honoring those who live…it’s a lot to unpack in the verses but at the end of the day it feels so good to be alive and creating and i am grateful for every moment.
Recently, TOBi published its Produced by Alex Goose single and video “Before You Panic” with Mikky ekko(written for Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Drake), which was a prelude to his next album. The artistic visual was shot and produced by Dom McLennon (BROCKHAMPTON) and Jeremy Grier.
