Multi-platinum pop phenomenon Bazzi makes his highly anticipated return with the intoxicating summer track “I Like That.” Having spent much of last year honing his uniquely personal songcraft on a series of million-streaming single releases, “I Like That” marks the launch of a bold new era for Bazzi, alive with raw sensuality, creative energy, and ever-increasing confidence. The multi-talented singer-songwriter-producer is currently hard at work in the studio, with more new music to follow in the coming months.
“’I Like That’ is the start of a new era for me. I’m exploring new things sonically & just having more fun making music. This song signifies a feeling of gratitude coming back into a new world and atmosphere.
Born to a Lebanese immigrant father and American mother in Canton, MI, Bazzi and his dad moved to California during his senior year where he single-handedly wrote and produced a series of viral smashes like “Alone” and “Beautiful,” earning millions of worldwide streams and top 10 placement on a variety of influential playlists. Now with over 1.7 billion streams to date, 2018’s 5x platinum certified “Mine” proved Bazzi’s true breakthrough. As if all that weren’t enough, the “Mine” companion video boasts over 184 million views via YouTube alone. Praised by Playboy for its “genre-bending…warts-and-all approach to songwriting,” Bazzi’s platinum certified debut album, COSMIC, debuted among the top 15 on the Billboard 200 upon its 2018 release, earning over 2B global streams with hits like the 4x platinum certified, top 40 hit duet version of “Beautiful (Ft. Camila Cabello).” In 2019, Bazzi unveiled his first ever mixtape, SOUL SEARCHING, collecting such platinum certified singles as “I.F.L.Y.” and “Paradise.” Hailed by Billboard as “his most personal work to date,” the project made a top 20 debut on the Billboard 200, while “Paradise” proved one of Bazzi’s biggest hits with more than TK global streams and counting.
Bazzi made the most of his 2020, releasing a string of intimate and deeply confessional tracks – including “Young & Alive,” “Renee’s Song,” “I Got You,” “I Don’t Think I’m Okay,” and “Crazy” – all of which drew millions of streams around the world. Now fully focused on the future, Bazzi is hard at work writing and recording new music, as always cross-pollinating modern pop with more traditional aspects of craft and performance.
