With a career spanning nearly two decades and decorated with several awards, nominations and music certifications to her name, multi-platinum recording artist Fefe Dobson is a true renaissance woman within the entertainment industry. Emerging as a pop / rock artist in the early 2000’s, Fefe stood out among her contemporaries as an edgy black female outlier in an otherwise male dominated genre.
Her Platinum Certified (Gold in America) eponymous debut album (2003) was released to critical acclaim, earning the 18 year old new girl on the music scene 4 consecutive top 10 radio singles including ‘Bye Bye Boyfriend,’ ‘Take Me Away’ and ‘Don’t Go (Girls & Boys)’. The single ‘Everything’ was a fan favorite that was featured on the soundtrack for Paramount Pictures hit teen comedy ‘The Perfect Score’ (2004). The album received multiple award nominations including 2 JUNO Award nominations and catapulted the young pop / rock artist into international stardom as the album officially debuted at #1 on the Billboard HeatSeekers album charts.
Fefe’s sophomore album Joy was a breakout success with two platinum certified top 10 singles ‘Ghost’ and ‘Stuttering’ and the gold certified hit ‘Can’t Breathe,’ a collaboration with legendary music producer Bob Ezrin (KISS, Pink Floyd) and guitar solo by recording artist Orianthi.
During the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2019, Fefe alongside Canadian pop star Tyler Shaw assembled some of Canada’s biggest artists including Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne and Bryan Adams for a charity single of the late Bill Withers’ ‘Lean On Me’ which raised over $200K for COVID-19 relief efforts in her native Canada.
Fefe’s new single is best described as a euphoric rush of passionate love driven by the heartbeat of synth, electric guitars and emphatic drum progression. Produced by Thomas “Tawgs” Salter (Walk Off The Earth, Mother Mother, Lights) and co-written by Cook Classics (Beyoncé, Ava Max, Panic! at the Disco), Negin Djafari (Drake, ZAYN, Lights) and Dobson herself, the song was originally written back in 2012 about the insatiable love for her then boyfriend, American rap artist Yelawolf, who would later become her husband. The new single marks the long awaited return from the pop / rock artist as her first commercial music release in nearly 8 years.
